Sam Soliman-Jermain Taylor Set For October 4th

Australia's IBF middleweight world champion Sam Soliman will make his first defence against celebrated fellow veteran Jermain Taylor in early October.

Victorian Soliman, who took the title away from Germany's Felix Sturm earlier this year, will fight former world champion Taylor in a venue to be announced on the United States' East Coast on October 4.

"We came very close to fighting (WBA super world champion) Gennady Golovkin, but this deal was too good to refuse," Soliman's manager David Stanley said.

Taylor, 36, is one of the most distinguished middleweight champions of the past 15 years.

His record of 32-4-1 (20 KOs) included two wins in 2005 over all-time great middleweight Bernard Hopkins.

But his career appeared in decline after he suffered four losses in five fights from 2007 to 2009, all to unbeaten boxers and men who won world titles.

Taylor's career was also threatened when he was diagnosed with a brain bleed and briefly stopped boxing.

However, he has won his past four fights to be ranked 15th by the IBF.

Taylor will beat Soliman! Sad thing is he can get permanently injured!

Soloman might not have enough power to stop Taylor.
