Felix Sturm is back in jail. He is to serve two years and four months for tax evasion and violation of the anti-doping law.
The sentence itself stems back to a verdict from 2019 when Sturm first was in custody for eight months. He was later sentenced to three years in prison but after an appeal it was reduced to two years and four months.
The doping charges go back to Sturm's fight against Fedor Chudinov in 2016.
