On Wednesday afternoon, sources within the Kingsley Ikeke camp told Boxingtalk.com that they have not received any notification that the March 6 bout between Ikeke and Felix Sturm has been cancelled to make way for Der la Hoya-Sturm. Ikeke's camp said that as recently as Monday, they were asked to provide the names of the people who would be accompanying Ikeke to Germany for the fight. Ikeke's position remains that he has a valid contract to fight the WBO middleweight titlist. Peter Kohl, Sturm's promoter, was not immediately available for comment.
