Lazarte Feels He Was Robbed in Archie Solis Rematch

By Nicholas Samuilov, notifight.com

The former world flyweight champion of the International Boxing Federation, Argentine Luis "El Mosquito" Lazarte, is still trying to digest the defeat ofrom last Saturday's rematch with Mexico's Ulises "Archie" Solis. His lost his title via split decision After twelve rounds at the United Eleven Club in Mar del Plata. Lazarte doesn't blame Solis, but he does blame the three official judges who were appointed by the IBF. He wishes the purse was a lot higher for the rematch. They fought to a very controversial draw in December.

"I wish I had caught a good purse," Lazarte told BoxingScene.com's Carlos Irusta. "I wish I'd taken a lot of money. People think that one takes in a lot of money, but in this division it is so horrible and you take in so little. Honestly, I only got $ 15,000 [from the $75,000 purse bid]. For me I won the fight. Archie Solis did nothing. There were no clean shots, he missed a lot and it was a big circus. I came with the fear of becoming disqualified. The judges, one had me five points behind. It hurt a lot. If he had won it, cleanly, I would accept it. This time, I made ​​a good fight."

I saw both fights, first one was a robbery for Solis, second one I would give the nod to Lazarte, IHMO Solis didn't do enough to get the decision

Interesting that Lazarte is whining about getting robbed in his home country. Then again, half the posters on here said last week that Solis couldn't win a decision in Argentina. Guess they were wrong.

Luis Alberto Lazarte, a 108 pound fighter, received $15,000 for a fight. That is what some known UFC guys get paid.
