Archie Solis Gets Revenge, Wins IBF Belt From Lazarte
By Nicholas Samuilov at ringside, notifight.com
At Club Once Unidos in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Ulises “Archie” Solis (33-2-3, 21 KOs) captured the IBF junior flyweight title with a close twelve round decision over Luis Lazarte (48-10-2, 18 KOs). The scores were 116-111 and 115-112 for Solis, and 114-113 for Lazarte. In December, they fought to a very controversial draw and the IBF ordered an immediate rematch after a review of the tape showed the champion biting Solis, among other fouls which took place. The second time around Lazarte did better and was able to change the tempo of the contest in the championship rounds.

this fight started very slow and was ugly until the last few rounds when the action picked up...lazarte did fight pretty dirtyComment by piojo del norte on 05-01-2011
I saw the first one, I have no reason to believe this one was different. Lazarte just gets close, hugs then punches everywhere even when the ref says "stop" he is just dirty. That is his style.Comment by goblin213 on 05-01-2011
