Notes: Sturm-Stieglitz, Bradley, more

By Dan Rafael | ESPN.com

A few notes from around the boxing world:

• Former four-time middleweight titlist Felix Sturm (39-4-2, 18 KOs) and former two-time super middleweight titleholder Robert Stieglitz (47-4, 27 KOs), two of Germany's most popular fighters, will hook up in a long-awaited showdown as each winds down his career. They are due to meet Nov. 8 in Stuttgart, Germany. Stieglitz, 33, notched a win in July in his return from losing a split decision and his world title to Arthur Abraham in their rubber match. Sturm, 35, lost his last fight and his title by decision to Sam Soliman on May 31.

• The likely site for former welterweight and junior welterweight titlist Timothy Bradley Jr.'s bout on Dec. 13 (HBO) is the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Top Rank has a request for that date at the Cosmo on the agenda for the next Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting. Bradley (31-1, 12 KOs) does not have an opponent yet for his first fight since losing a decision to Manny Pacquiao in their April rematch, but the leading candidate is Diego Chaves (23-2, 19 KOs) of Argentina.
