Fight rated 2 stars by AllTheBestFights.comReview: 2014-10-08, disappointing fight between Sam Soliman and Jermain Taylor: it gets two stars. The 40-year-old Sam Soliman (4 years older than Taylor) entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 44-11-0 (18 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.3 middleweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Gennady Golovkin); he suffered his last defeat in 2008 when he faced Anthony Mundine in a bout valid for the Wba super-Mw title, since then he has collected nine wins and one no-contest, the first fight against Felix Sturm (=Sturm vs Soliman I) but then he managed to defeat him winning the Ibf Mw title in his last bout (=Sturm vs Soliman II).
His opponent, the former Wbc, Wba, Wbo and Ibf Mw champion Jermain Taylor, has an official record of 32-4-1 (20 knockouts) but he entered as the No.47 in the same weight class since the last time he fought for a world title was in 2009 when he lost to Carl Froch; after this bout he was beat also by Arthur Abraham and then he won four consecutive fights, the last one against Juan Carlos Candelo. Soliman vs Taylor is valid for the IBF middleweight title (Soliman’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!

  1. Sam, what a great man, in and out the ring, love it when he smiles everytime during the ref instructions when facing the opposition. Good heart in and out the ring. Looked to me he did the knee in the 4th round when he went down awkwardly the first time and it got worse from there. Not sure if he will continue at 40 and knowing the knee will take a while to mend and having to fight is way through again for the title, hope so, he certainly has the stamina and heart for it.
