Odlanier Solis Hires Penagaricano, Looks To Dump Oner

By Jhonny Gonzalez

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.

Epitomy of a boxer squandering his talent.

Solis has not been fit since his amateur days. He is very gifted but he lacks heart and a proper training regime. I lost everything for him after his fight with Ray Austin.

It was Oner not Solis that backed out of the fights with Larsen and Adamek. Solis is wise to finally break free of him.

He gets paid and his motivation to stay in shape evaporated. He needs to lose 50 pounds and start fighting regularly again.
