Cory Spinks Mulling Move To 160 For Sam Soliman Bout

By Cory Erdman

There is an IBF middleweight eliminator on the table between Sam Soliman (39-11, 17KOs) and Cory Spinks (38-6, 11KOs). Spinks is mulling over a move to middleweight or to remain at 154, but the fight appears close. Both have been inactive over the last few years. Soliman has only fought four times since a 2008 decision loss to Anthony Mundine, while has been in the same category with four fights since a 2008 decision loss to Verno Phillips. The winner of Spinks-Soliman would face the winner of IBO champion Osumanu Adama and Roman Karmazin.

Corey Erdman hosts The Score on SIRIUS 158.
