Former IBF middleweight champion Sam “King” Soliman contacted Fightnews.com® to give an update on his IBF championship belt that was stolen recently. “After I explained the circumstances to the IBF how my car was stolen along with my world championship belt, I was contacted today by IBF Public Relations Director Jeanette Salazar who said that IBF President Daryl Peoples will send me a new IBF championship belt and there will be no charge,” said Soliman. “I would like to thank Daryl and Jeanette for their kind generosity. It is much appreciated.”
Let’s face it it’s hardly a Lonsdale or Ring mag belt, so it shouldn’t cost too much to knock one up!
Why was he riding around with it in his car?
Guys will use anything to impress women. Thats the only reason I can figure.
Flex his muscles and show that championship belt = chic magnet.
Hey man he earned it! Where’s your belt
They sent him a plastic belt…don’t forget to keep it safe just behind the passenger seat ok?
Very cool. %#%#% thieves
I’m sure some mericans ride around with their WWE belts, fark yeah
He gives talks to school kids who are at risk of taking the wrong path. Part of the talk is to show the belt which gets the kids more involved.
