Heavyweight boxer Odlanier Solis (17-1, 12KOs) will finally return to action on the 14th of October in Germany against Berliner Varol Vekiloglu (18-2-1, 10KOs). They will battle for the vacant IBF Intercontinental title. Solis was last seen suffering a knee injury and being unable to continue in the first round of his March clash with WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko.

Following his defeat, Solis, 31-years-old and a 2004 Olympic Gold medal winner, had to undergo a surgical procedure to correct the knee injury. Meanwhile, the protege of promoter Ahmet Öner has returned to his running exercises and he wants to make a big statement in the October fight.

"Odlanier has demonstrated in a single round that he is better than Vitali Klitschko and can beat the older brother," says Öner.

Solis believes that he will defeat Vekiloglu and go on to capture a world title - "As long as my knee holds up, nobody can stop me."

[QUOTE=hillbilly]Well, the reports that he had an acl tear could not be right then. I find it hard to believe he could return from such an injury in 7 months. It has been done, but it is less than 5 months since he injured the knee. There is no way he could know right now that his knee wiill be...

[QUOTE=LegendOfLink]LOL, at him or his team bragging about winning the 1rst round even if they felt they won the 1rst round. Who wins a fight just by scoring 1 round? Solis was legitimately KO'd if he weren't so heavy-set than the chances of him messing up his knees/legs would have been alot slim...

[QUOTE=edgarg]Yes, and very likely not for a lot longer. It is a very serious injury, although not as serious as the one which caused Klitschko's retirement. THAT was the worst, and I recall several medical opinions which said that it was very unlikely that he could ever come back to boxing. ...
