WORLD boxing champion Sam Soliman is heading to Bendigo next month.
Soliman will be special guest at a two-hour seminar run by the Kangaroo Flat-based Pianto Boxing Academy on August 23.
The boxing ace is the IBF world champion in the middleweight division.
The 40-year-old will talk about his journey to being the reigning world champion in his weight division, as well as overcoming various setbacks throughout his long career.
"To get Sam to Bendigo for this seminar is a huge coup," Pianto said on Tuesday night.
"He has an amazing story to tell, but will also talk about various techniques and training drills he has used over the years."
Soliman's professional career includes 54 bouts, 42 wins, 17 by knockout.
Tickets to the Soliman Show are $50. Bookings are a must. Contact Frank Pianto on 0401 306 308.
Another major boxing event coming up is State of Origin featuring competitors from New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria at Eaglehawk's Truscott Reserve on Seotember 14.
The night will feature Bendigo's Kristian Fry fighting for the Central Victoria Goldfields cruiserweight title in his comeback.
