Soliman: Drug allegations are complete nonsense

By Brett Bonetti

IBF #1 rated middleweight Sam Soliman (43-11, 17 KO’s) has strongly has refuted reports that he failed a drug test which was taken before his unanimous decision victory over Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16 KO’s) in their IBF Middleweight title eliminator on February 1 in Germany. Soliman used Twitter to make the following statement: “Drug allegations are complete nonsense and an insult. Anyone who knows me knows my views about drug cheats.”

Soliman’s manager, Dave Stanley told the Australian Associated Press, “I’ve contacted the Australian anti-doping commission to get them to get into contact with the German group because there are irregularities all over the place on this against someone who is vehemently opposed to any form of performance-enhancing drug use.”
