IBF World Middleweight Champion, Sam ‘King’ Soliman will fight former world title holder JermaIn ‘Bad Intentions” Taylor in the US on Wednesday, October 8.

Taylor has an impressive record with 32 wins, 20 by knock-out, and four losses.

“I’m going to be stepping into the ring against a former World Middleweight and Super Middleweight contender, who is chasing a comeback dream,” Soliman said.

“Jermain Taylor has nothing to lose, and that makes him a very dangerous opponent.”

“I know how dangerous that mindset is. It’s the same ‘all or nothing’ approach I’ve taken into my last ten fights to win the title. I’m bringing the same intensity to my preparation for this fight.

“It has taken me 20 hard years to get to where I am. Being a world champion is a special feeling, and one I plan on keeping.

“This is my first title defence, and I’m leaving no stone unturned to make sure it’s not my last.

“After my world title win against Germany’s Felix Sturm in May, I took three weeks off and then climbed straight back into the saddle and have been training to be ready for this.

“Jermain is a tall rangy fighter who stands at 1.85 metres and packs a knock-out punch. I’ve been in the game a long time, and fought all-comers. I have the fighting style to take him on and win. I was slated to fight him five years ago, but that never eventuated.

“I’m no stranger at fighting in the USA in front of a huge audience, at ringside and on television. I had some great times there when I fought on sports channel ESPN’s TV boxing show, the Contender.

“Soliman called out GGG and GGG again ducked a division title holder.”

WOW. Such a prestigeous fight for Golovkin. Rubio beats Soliman no problem. Soliman said he’d fight him next year anyway. If GGG can’t get anyone better he might take 30 seconds to smash Soliman.

“Soliman called out GGG and GGG again ducked a division title holder. He is facing Rubio instead. Riff Raff, wrong. Soliman said he’s like to fight GGG next year, not in his next fight. This was widely reported so stop mist-stating facts to support your deranged beliefs. We’ll see if Soliman remembers his statement in 2015. 10/1 he forgets it because he knows he’ll lose by KO.

Jermain is still a good fighter, he is always leading on the card with activity and good jab, there a problem the way he is condition. If he get a conditioning coach he would be back on top again. As you notice his previous KO fights, it looked as though he was more exhausted when KO rather then the other boxer skills KO’ing him

Noniskia – Soliman called out GGG and GGG again ducked a division title holder. He is facing Rubio instead, what a chump. Just add Soliman to a long line of title holders that GGG has turned down.

TARK good breakdown of Pavlik’s demise. A damn shame and waste of talent. Last I read he was having seizures regularly.

Swedish Boxing Fan YOU’RE WRONG!!!… Jermain Taylor’s confidence was SKY HIGH after the Hopkins fights…

WHY???

Jermain was the Undefeated World Middleweight Champion… He had millions of dollars… and the world was at his feet.

He had one of the greatest trainers on Earth in Emmanuel Steward.. But Jermain NEVER COULD box OR punch, and was super easy to hit his whole career … Kelly Pavlik was ALWAYS going to knock Jermain cold.

However…once Pavlik became Middleweight Champ he start partying, womanizing, spending, and carrying on like crazy.. Like he promised himself he would after he pushed himself to the top of the world.. He let loose.. But Kelly couldn’t handle the fame, the money, the women, and especially the booze..

He became an alcoholic… got numerous staph infections, kept getting sick.. postponing fights.. and when he fought Hopkins he should have been in a hospital… Hopkins never hurt Pavlik, he just fought him at the right time… Pavlik was loaded with antibiotics and his left elbow was badly swollen with a fluid filled bursa sack… He also had bronchitis on the night he fought Hopkins.

Pavlik was on a downward spiral that didn’t quit… 35-year-old Sergio Martinez beat him easily as well… He went into rehab several times and eventually quit the ring… None of that had anything to do with Bernard Hopkins — it was all Kelly Pavlik.

I was most impressed by the two fights against Strum….too bad Strum is not respected in the States…but there’s no money to be made in the States.
Strum has his own boxing company and got one channel to show his fights….so he made big money the last few years.

Taylor don’t have a chance.

I loved Taylor back in the day as he was a natural athlete with a promising career ahead of him BUT Jermain Taylor took a psychic hit against Bernard Hopkins.

After Taylor fought Hopkins he lost both confidence and his fighting rhythm as we could not see a dominant Taylor against either Ronald “Winky” Wright, Kassim Ouma or Cory Spinks and all three fighters where smaller fighters with less punch power and still he failed to make any impresive performances or even take any of them down.

Then he gets kncoked out by Kelly Pavlik and out-boxed in there 2nd fight. He got heavy KO’d by Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham.

I even heard in interviews that Jermain Taylor’s own people felt that there man’s confidence was not the same after the Hopkins fights.

I would love to see Jermain Taylor win a final world title in his career before retire but Sam Soliman is a tough opponent and like I said before, he have never been knocked-out or stoped before in his career and he is the champ now and is in better fight condition then Taylor have proven in later fights.

“Hopkins almost took the best out of him.”

Hopkins did NOTHING to Taylor… He lost twice.

The guys who murdered Taylor were hitters… Pavlik.. Froch.. and Abraham.

Hopkins is such a weak hitter he hasn’t stopped anybody for 17 fights and over 10 years. He’s weak.. He’s soft.. He’s old.. He’s a braggart.. He’s none too bright.
Posted August 22, 2014 7:31 pm

They both fought the closet fights SEEN Bhop was very unlucky to lose ………….Seeing he was the CHAMP ……..Wheres Taylor now ………? How many divisions and for long long was Jermains Reign ?…………………………….

swedishboxing faN its not so that sam has a iron chins …its his slippery ness the facted that he is very difficult to hit ….you maybe be able to land something on him once but twice ….NO and landing or hitting sam usually means not landing clean on him at all ….

This was a tough one. Hard to say what he has left in the tank.

The former Undisputed middleweight champion of the world Jermain “Bad Intentions” Taylor (32-4-1 KO’s 20) was once a big potential top fighter until 2007. After he fought Bernard Hopkins twice in 2005, Taylor would never again be that power fighter he was before. Hopkins almost took the best out of him.

After Taylor’s reign was over as the middleweight champ in 2007, he only defeated former super middleweight world champion Jeff Lacy of notice and the rest he got knocked-out by Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham and he was hurt badly by them.
Sure Taylor was in the lead against Froch and had knocked him down in 3rd round but when Taylor went down he was badly hurt and in bad condition.

Since 2011 Jermain Taylor have only fought 4 fights and all against journeymen. Taylor was knocked-down in his fight against unknown Caleb Truax in 2012.

Taylor was an amazing athlete talent in his best days and potential to have become a good champion but now he is 36 years old and haven’t fought a top contender in 5 years and even if Taylor was a good boxer then, its hard to say that he will have a decent chance against a strong opponent like Sam Soliman (44-11-0-1 NC, KO’s 18).

Even if Soliman is 40+, he have fought active and in his 11 losses he have NEVER been knocked-out and he is gifted with an iron chin.

Jermain taylor have been very out of the ring fpr most of these 5 years sence and when this fight is up against Soliman he will have been over 10 months inactive.

Again how Jermain Taylor can be IBF #15 is a mystery in its own and how a #15th ranked fighter can get a title shot (?) but oh well I can give him this title fight as a last chance for himself.

I wish Jermain Taylor all the best in this fight.

Taylor unless he,s shot should win this << has been for a long time ……..

Posted August 22, 2014 6:39 pm

I can not see Taylor winning this …With his long time away from the top performing at that level………..Sam has been busting his gut for 20 years everyday spending years in the UK/Europe sparring the best it had to offer……Fighting as heavy as cruzza weight to get the ring experience ……….He is going to be to tuff too FIT and just to GOOD and awkward for (a faded) Jermain Taylor …..

Gotta give Taylor credit for hanging in there and still trying to earn another title. Soliman will be a tough test for him.

Taylor will win, Soliman is really just cashing out at 41. Watch from here Golovkin fighting Taylor as a Quillin fight won’t happen and Cotto wants to bite into a big PPV with Alvarez before he goes.

Taylor unless he,s shot should win this, always did better against boxers, when he got beat it was against big hard hitting durable fighters who could come on strong in later rounds when is stamina let him dowm

Well, since it’s a Wednesday we might watch. Fridays we’d just hit the bar and skip FNF as we’ve done many times this year.

Jermain Taylor and the word skill dont go together..hope Soliman finishes him.

Taylor will win this is in a big way. This guy has sone serious skills! I doubt Soliman has the power to ko Taylor so I expect if Taylor has anything left in the tank he will win by a wide decision.
