Mundine, Soliman Prepare For Trilogy Bout

By Mark Vester

Most Australian fans are against it, but the fight will go on. WBA "regular" super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine will collide with Sam Soliman for the third time. The fight is scheduled for a May date in Melbourne.

Mundine already holds two wins over Soliman. A controversial split-decision win in 2001, and a ninth-round knockout to win the vacant WBA title last March. Soliman revived his career after a successful run on the boxing reality show "The Contender."

Mundine hopes the trilogy bout with Soliman will lead to a rematch with rival Danny Green, who currently holds the WBA light heavyweight title. Mundine holds a decision win over Green, but their fight was one of the most lucrative in Australian boxing history and most predict the rematch will do bigger business.
