Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis (18-1, 12KOs) has hired veteran legal adviser Gaby Peñagarícano, who represents Miguel Cotto, Timothy Bradley, Eddie Gomez, Jonathan Gonzalez and several other boxers.
Solis was scheduled to fight former two-division champion Tomasz Adamek in an IBF eliminator on December 22nd, but the fight fell apart due to promotional issues with Ahmet Oner of Arena Box.
The Cuban boxer, 32-years-old, wants to break away from what he feels is an agreement that "took advantage of him."
Earlier this year, Solis' countryman Yuriorkis Gamboa, also a gold medal winner, parted ways with Oner after a legal battle.
Solis is staying in shape, training with 154-pound champion Miguel Cotto in Big Bear, California. Cotto takes on WBA "regular" junior middleweight champion Austin Trout on December 1 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
