Odlanier Solis vs. Franklin Lawrence in October?

By Luke Furman

Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis (20-1, 13 KOs) is possibly going to return to action in the month of October. The Cuban boxer is being touted to face Franklin Lawrence (19-2-2, 14 KOs), who has scored big wins over Lance Whitaker and Jason Estrada, and undefeated since a 2009 decision loss to former champion Oliver McCall. For Solis, this would be his third fight of the year, and the first time he held three fights within a single year since 2009.
