Soliman fails drug test

The Bundes Deutscher Berufsboxer (German Boxing Federation) has announced that IBF #1 rated middleweight Sam Soliman has failed his drug test after his decision win over Felix Sturm on February 1. BDB President Thomas Putz told BILD that Soliman’s A sample tested positive for “a hard to detect designer drug that has a stimulating effect…Sam Soliman how has the opportunity for a hearing. I have informed the NADA doping agency and the IBF.” Sturm told BILD: “I was harassed before the fight with several blood tests then he cheats himself. Simply sad!”
