Soliman: Jermain Taylor is Still a World Class Fighter
“I’ve trained in New York City numerous times, I love it here, there’s an electricity and energy that can’t be matched” said the Australian native. “The fans and boxing community have always been very welcoming to me.”
“I’ve got one more sparring session today and then we’re leaving for Biloxi on Friday for the fight.”
In camp over the last ten days in New York City with Soliman have been two undefeated prospects.
“I like utilizing undefeated prospects for sparring, they’ve always brought out the best in me.”
“Along with two here I had three undefeated fighters working with me in Australia which brought the total records of the five fighters to 63-0-0 (42KO’s)” said Soliman. “I like sparring with prospects that have the will and desire that only an undefeated fighter can have.”
In regards to his title defense against Taylor, 32-4-0 (20KO’s), Soliman stated, “I’m preparing for the best Jermain Taylor. I would never underestimate anyone and I believe he is still a world class fighter.”
Soliman, 44-11-0 (18KO’s) will break camp in New York City on Friday and head to Biloxi, Mississippi for the challenge from Taylor. “No problem at all for me at 160, I can’t remember being above 170 in the last 15 years.”
At the age of 40, Soliman won his first world title by defeating Felix Sturm on May 31, 2014, in the champions’ homeland of Germany.

6 years ago I would have picked Taylor easy. Now I still think he could pull off one last one but I think Soliman will outwork him to a decision.Comment by BattleAxePurist on 10-01-2014
Interesting tid-bit just looking at trends but it seems a win over JC Candelo gets you a title shot at MW Guerrero got one w/petey now Taylor is getting one both were coming off wins against the former washed up…Comment by -PBP- on 10-01-2014
