According to reports in Germany, Australian fighter Sam Soliman (43-11, 17KOs)) has tested positive for a banned substance in the aftermath of his February 1st upset decision victory over Felix Sturm (37-4-2, 16KOs). Thomas Puetz, President of the German Boxing Federation, said Soliman was postive for a "designer drug that has a stimulating effect. Sam Soliman now has the opportunity for a hearing."

Sturm stated to reporters "I was harassed before the fight with several blood tests and then he cheats himself, just sad!"

Puetz will now contact the IBF and advise them of the positive test. Sturm-Soliman was a final IBF eliminator. Soliman's "A" sample has tested positive so far. He has the option of having the "B" sample tested. If the "B" sample tests positive, Soliman will get a suspension and a fine, and his win over Sturm will be changed to a no-contest.

So is Sturm Geale's mandatory now or does he have to fight another eliminator? Would like to see Geale vs Golovkin if Geale doesn't have any more obligations.

Fighters getting caught taking something has become a epidemic lately.

[QUOTE=Simurgh]I am not saying Sturm won, but he wasn't dominated by any means. It was close enough that rematch is still an interesting fight IMO.[/QUOTE] I had it a draw, and honestly thought it could have been wide for either guy, or close for either guy. Almost every round was a toss up. O...

Wow, this seems to be happening every other fight. In any other sports, the sportsmen would be banned for a hefty amount of time, if not for life. Now we have to put up with guys who come back form their positive tests and fans still support them. I think it is absolutely despicable that Peterson...
