Default Sam Soliman

Been watching the contender have to say i'm really impressed with the professionalism of this guy.... I'm a little ahead of most in the series but the guy has really learnt to get the most out of his body and he's such a nice fella. What a credit to boxing! More fighters setting this kind of example would be gr8 for the sport.

Unfortunately I think he is showing signs of "shot-ness". He is a very likeable chap, and I hope he stops his career before he gets seriously hurt by somebody, the 168'ers are simply too big for him.
Mundine pounded him bad and dropped him several times, something that had never happened before, and against Alexander he was clearly hurt in the second round and was close to going down there also.
I think he'll meet Bika in the Contender semis considering they are no.2 and no.3 in the power rankings right now, and I hope Bika won't manhandle him too much. Both fighters are a lot different from when they first met, and I'm afraid this won't end good for Soliman this time.

Thanks for the breakdown my friend.

Sadly you have put my worst fears into words.

I too hope Sammy retires before he gets badly hurt.

He has and is an ornament to his sport.
