IBF middleweight champion Sam “King” Soliman (44-11, 18 KOs) talks to Fightnews to say he is looking forward to defending the championship against former IBF, WBC, WBA, WBO middleweight champion Jermain “Bad Intentions” Taylor (32-4-1, 20 KOs) on October 8 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut. “After watching tapes of Taylor in fights against Caleb Truax and Raul Munoz, I know it will be a tough fight on October 8,” said Soliman. “Taylor has a great left jab and very good work rate but work rate is my speciality. The late rounds of our fight will be interesting.

“We are both veterans with Taylor at 36 years of age and me at 40 years. Taylor defeated one of my idols in a Bernard Hopkins. I have admired Bernard for what he does in the ring and how he conducts himself outside the ring. He will upset Sergey Kovalev in November. I want to get revenge against Taylor for Bernard. I will defeat Taylor!” (more…)

Ivan Redkach now trained by Robert Garcia

Undefeated USBA lightweight champion Ivan “The Terrible” Redkach (17-0, 13 KOs) has changed head trainers, adding former world champion and 2011 Trainer of the Year Robert Garcia to his corner. Rated in the top 10 by three of the four sanctioning bodies – IBF #6, WBC #8 and WBA #10 – Redkach and his manager, Larry Army (Elite Management), felt a world-class trainer was needed on Team Redkach as the Ukrainian fighter closes in on his first world title shot, hopefully, in 2015.

“I have a lot of respect for my former trainer, Mario Morales, but I needed a new trainer to teach me how to win at the championship level,” Redkach said. “I didn’t show any improvement in my last two fights, something I need to do every fight to be a legitimate world title contender. Robert Garcia has proven many times that he is a great trainer, one of the best in boxing. I get great sparring at his gym in Oxnard, which is only a one-hour drive from my home (in Los Angeles). I can’t wait for my next fight to show everybody how much I’ve improved.” (more…)

He’s currently training for the slickster Bey at the Ponce De Leon Boxing Gym in Montebello, California, working with hard nose trainer Javier Capetillo, the trainer infamous for his role in Antonio Margarito’s hand wrap controversy. “We are training hard.

Capetillo told us, “This is one of his best preparations he has had training for his next fight. He will come in 120 percent in shape. We’re focusing on fighting a little more. He’s a boxer and likes to move so we’ll work on attacking and pressuring the opponent. I know Miguel is a complicated fighter with lots of ability.” (more…)
