Soliman: Bika will beat Mundine!

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Former world super middleweight contender Sam Soliman is confident that the IBO 168 pound champion and IBF#3 Sakio Bika (27-3-2, 18 KOs) will defeat former WBA super middleweight champion and current IBO middleweight champion Anthony Mundine if that fight is successfully negotiated. Soliman scored a points victory over Sakio Bika in Australia, but lost a rematch on the Contender Series in the USA in 2007. Mundine scored two disputed points wins over Soliman and also a stoppage victory over the Melbourne based middleweight.

Soliman said: “Sakio Bika would stop Mundine in my opinion. Bika is at the peak of his career and Anthony looks to be slipping. Mundine never beat a top world class 168 pound contender. I do not rate his win over Anrtwun Echols because he suffered a gun shot wound before boxing Mundine. Ottke stopped Mundine – Manny Siaca outscored him and also Mikkel Kessler who easily beat him with a bad back.One judge gave Kessler every round. I was never a super middleweight. I took the fight because it was a world title opportunity. In our last fight it was in the fight stats I scored with the most punches. I am now preparing to fight on a Joe Nader Melbourne promotion and hopefully it will be against a world rated middleweight. Sam Soliman is trained by David Hedgecock. I have had 90 fights as a amateur and professional and Dave trained me for the whole journey. We will be together until my career is over.”
