Former world title challenger Sam Soliman (38-11, 16 KOs) will be back in action on September 23 when he will clash with Pradeep Singh (15-2-1, 8 KOs) over twelve rounds at the Atrium Room, in the Flemington Racecourse at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Soliman holds wins over several world rated middleweights and super middleweights including Sakio Bika and Enrique Ornelas and is best remembered for giving Winky Wright the fight of his life in 2005 when the fight stats had the Aussie out working the classy American on the punch count. “I am looking forward to my fight on September 23 against Pradeep Singh,” said Soliman. “It will move me closer to a shot at the IBF middleweight championship.”

Soliman continued, “I have offered to fight IBF champion Sebastian Sylvester but he has refused to get in the ring against me. He is obviously running scared and I can understand his management must consider me too dangerous as I offered to fight him for a very small purse. He is defending against Mahir Oral in October and if he wins that he must fight the winner of Roman Karmazin vs Daniel Geale. I have sparred Daniel Geale many times and I know he will defeat Sylvester.”

Also appearing on the undercard will be world rated boxers: super bantamweight Daniel Iannazzo (17-1, 6 KOs) and welterweight Samuel Colomban (17-3, 8 KOs).

Televised throughout Australia on Foxtel Cable Television. Promoters: Brian Amatruda and Barry Michael.
