Dominic Wade To Gest Tested By Sam Soliman, 6/26

By Francisco Salazar

Unbeaten middleweight Dominic Wade will fight Sam Soliman on June 26 in a clash between youth and experience, Gordon Hall notified by email.

Hall is the longtime Vice President of Production and Executive Producer of the Shobox series on Showtime.

The 10 round bout will take place at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, Wash. and will headline a TGB Promotions card.

Aside from the Wade-Soliman bout, unbeaten prospects Jamel Herring and Erickson Lubin will fight in separate bouts on the card. Showtime will televise all three bouts.

Wade (17-0, 12 KOs) is coming off a second round stoppage win over Eddie Hunter on December 20th. Wade scored his best win on June 27, when he won a 10 round decision over Nick Brinson in Las Vegas, Nev.

Wade's chin has come into question as he was dropped in his six round decision win over Dashon Johnson in January of last year.

Soliman (44-12, 18 KOs) is coming off a 12 round unanimous decision loss at the hands of Jermain Taylor on October 8. Soliman lost the IBF middleweight title to Taylor, who was stripped of the belt in January after getting arrested in his hometown of Little Rock, Ark. Soliman suffered a leg injury during the fight and has been on the mend ever since, only recently returning to the gym.

Both Herring and Lubin fought on the same card on March 6 in Las Vegas. Herring (11-0, 7 KOs), a United States Olympian who fought in the 2012 London Games, won a one-sided eight round decision over Hector Marengo, while the 19 year old Lubin (10-0, 7 KOs) stopped Kenneth Council in the first round.

No opponents have been announced as of yet for Herring and Lubin.
