There had been mentions of Wladimir facing Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis, but the Cuban's promoter says the negotiations fell apart.

The discussions could be "ongoing", but are very likely just Oquendo's manager contacting Klitschko. It's normal for a voluntary for the champion to start tentative negotiations with 3-4 potential opponents, before a final deision is made.

Oquendo is a trier, which is about all that can be said for him. At best he was a low B, (not good) but today likely a low C. He shouldn't be fighting the champion except in an exhibition.

Anyway a poster has reported that Klitschko's manager says that it's not true.
