The BDB (Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer) had this week changed the result of Soliman’s victory over Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16 KOs) on February 1 to a no-contest. Soliman’s manager, Dave Stanley successfully sought to have the B sample split so it could be tested in a US laboratory that does regular screening of boxers, including IBF boxers. Soliman is now keen to move on and face current champion Daniel Geale (29-1, 15 KOs). The IBF had ordered Geale to make a mandatory defense against Soliman.
