Cuba’s Odlanier Solis (17-1) got paid plenty for his risk on Saturday night. In the first round, he went down from a Vitali Klitschko right hand, and during the fall he injured his right knee. The fight was stopped before a booing crowd of 19,000 in Cologne, Germany. According to multiple reports in Germany, the three minutes of action earned the 2004 Olympic Gold medalist a handsome purse of $1.8 million USD. For his part, Klitschko, 39, was said to have earned $15 million.
