BATB has received word that undefeated Largo, MD middleweight Dominic "Lights Out" Wade will take the biggest step of his career when he faces former world champion "King" Sam Soliman of Melbourne, Australia on Friday, June 26 at the Little Creek Casino Resort in Shelton, WA. The 10-round bout is slated to be broadcast on Showtime's ShoBox telecast.
Wade (17-0, 12 KO's) is coming off a second-round TKO over Eddie Hunter on December 20 at the Little Creek Casino Resort. Wade has knocked out four of his last six opponents.
Soliman (44-12, 18 KO's) will not be an easy person to put away. The former IBF Middleweight champion has only been stopped once in his career. That was when Soliman lost to Anthony Mundine in the ninth round in March of 2007. Soliman, who won the IBF title in March of 2014 with a unanimous decision over Felix Sturm, lost the title in his first defense against Jermain Taylor in Soliman's last outing on October 8 in Biloxi, MS.
We hope to talk to Wade about this huge contest in the very near future.
