Klitschko vs. Solis Discussions Fall Apart For April 6th

By Ruslan Chikov

IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has still not finalized an opponent for his voluntary defense on April 6th. There were discussions about the possibility of putting him in with Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis, but the Cuban's promoter Ahmet Oner tells the German press that their negotiations fell apart for unknown reasons.

"The subject is closed. We negotiated and, in fact, came to an agreement on all points, but at the last minute Klitschko's side made a different decision. We always wanted this fight. Solis would come out even for very little money," Oner said.

The rumored Klitschko opponent at the moment is WBA #5 rated Fres Oquendo.
