Oner Will Push for Solis to Become Mandatory to Klitschko

By Ruslan Chikov

Promoter Ahmet Oner of Arena Box will push for his boxer, heavyweight Odlanier Solis (17-1, 12KOs), to become the mandatory challenger to one of the Klitschko brothers within twelve months. In March of 2011, Solis was stopped in the first round after badly injuring his knee in a title fight with WBC champion Vitali Klitschko. Solis finally comes back, after months of rehab, on May 19th against Konstantin Airich in Pharr, Texas. He hopes to get a rematch with Vitali very soon.

"In the next twelve months, Solis will be the mandatory challenger for a fight with Klitschko. I will make [the sanctioning body] do it. In May, Odlanier will fight with an opponent who holds a good position in the world rankings, and then we will only focus on Klitschko," Oner said.

The manager of the Klitschko brothers, Bernd Boente, has no intention of negotiating with Oner. The two individuals have been involved in a feud since their days of working together with Universum Box-Promotion.

But Oner says - "If Klitschko has at least a single grain of professional honor, he will come to fight with Solis."

[QUOTE=johnnycontrolet;12032516]Gamboa is a smart guy and got rid of this criminal as his manager, Solis should do the same then I'm sure he gets a shot against one of the Klitschkos. But Solis has no chance against them at all.[/QUOTE]…
