FELIX STURM today confirmed he has vacated his WBA world super-middleweight title due to an elbow injury which will sideline him until next year.

Sturm tested positive for an anabolic steroid after his contentious points win over Fedor Chudinov in February to win the title, though protests his innocence.

Prior to the opening of his ‘B’ sample, Sturm has now vacated the belt after suffering an injury which is said to require surgery.
