Friday, July 9, 2021: Australia’s outstanding super welterweight Sam Soliman (46 wins 15 loses) faces undefeated Victor Nagbe for the WBC Australasia title at the Melbourne Pavilion on 10 July.

Soliman had a narrow loss against Sako Bika in the Australian fight of the year on 31 March and has been nominated for the Australian Boxing Hall of fame that will be held later this year.

Australian boxing has embraced Nagbe who two years ago turned full time pro boxer after representing Australia in boxing at the Commonwealth Games.

A former kickboxing and muaythai star on the world stage, Nagbe declined overtures from the UFC and has displayed impressive boxing talent during his successful transition into professional boxing.

Nagbe has won all of his pro boxing fight contests, including a win against an ANBF State champion.
