Taylor defeats Soliman; Dirrell destroys Brinson

Sam Soliman - Sam Soliman

International Boxing Federation (IBF) middleweight champion Sam Soliman (44-12, 18 KOs) physically fell apart and he looked every bit of his 40 years in losing to 36-year-old Jermain Taylor (44-12, 18 KOs) by a 12 round unanimous decision at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, in Biloxi, Mississippi, USA.

Soliman slipped on the wet canvas in the 7th, causing him to injure his left leg while being knocked down.
