Archie Solis Confident: The IBF Title is Coming To Mexico!

Ulises "Archie" Solis will travel to Argentina on Sunday to face Luis Lazarte in a rematch for his flyweight title of the International Boxing Federation (IBF). Solis (32-2-3, 21 KOs) will seek to settle the score with Lazarte (48-9-2, 18 KOs), who last December, retained his world championship over Solis with a controversial draw that was considered by the press, even in Argentina, as a bad ruling. The IBF ordered direct confrontation between the two fighters.

"Archie" and his team, consisting of Lorenzo Lopez, Israel Camarillo, Cesar Solis, Dr. Román Cruz and William Brown as a representative of Zanfer Promotions will fly from Mexico City to Buenos Aires, where they will move to Mar de Plata, site of next Saturday's fight that will be broadcast by Televisa.

"I travel with a lot of courage and a very clear head on what I will do in the ring when put in with Lazarte. This time the eyes of the boxing world will be watching what happens on April 30. I have great confidence that this time the IBF will send trained judges and a referee," Solis said.

"I must show my superiority more clearly over Luis Lazarte and the IBF flyweight world title will come back wit me to Mexico. I am very encouraged by the triumphs of my friends Hernan "Tyson" Marquez and Orlando Salido. I'm a proud Mexican and it gives me more strength to make sure that title is mine."

[SIZE="4"][COLOR="Red"]Solis can't blame anybody for the fouls. Lazarte would purposely foul him repeatedly and then Solis would make up with him by touching gloves. Foul me more than once and I'm going balls hunting.:nutkick::nutkick:[/COLOR][/SIZE]
