Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany - It was the shortest fight in Vitali Klitschko's championship career and one of his shortest fights as a prizefighter. It took the WBC heavyweight champion less than three minutes to arguably lose the first round of his collision with previously unbeaten 2004 Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis (17-1, 12 KOs) - before scoring a disappointing injury-forced knockout of his chubby opponent.

WBC #1 and WBO #6 Solis started this fight pretty well. He used his right hand to trouble the champion (Klitschko's left hand being low as usual) with well-placed overhand punches. Klitschko used his own jab to keep Solis mostly at bay but not always as the Cuban fighter was very effective with his counter-punches.

The fight finished in the blink of an eye in final ten seconds of the first round. Klitschko threw a right hook which barely penetrated Solis' tight block. Yet the challenger suddenly made a couple of steps back when his left knee buckled, and he fell backwards with his back hitting hard on the canvas.

Referee Guadalupe Garcia started the count but Solis barely made it to his feet. Once he stood up, Solis appeared to wobble again and the fight was waved off at the very end of the round. Official time was 3:00 and the official result was announced as a knockout. However, the replay showed that it was an injury to Solis' his left leg (though he pointed to his right) which caused both the knockdown and the subsequent stoppage.

[QUOTE=COLONEL SANDERS]That fraud Vitali would have been beaten without that stupid injury.[/QUOTE] Your hate is so thick man. Maybe Solis was the fraud fool. Just becuase you land 3 counters in te 1st round does'nt mean he would've won the fight. It would've ended like Wlad's fight with Chamb...

[QUOTE=NaijaD]the gallery is garbage, all i see is the moments when solis blocked his jab, solis had that round easy, it was shaping up to be a good fight till the injury..... bad result for heavyweight boxing.[/QUOTE] Sorry, but there aren't any pictures in the gallery of Solis blocking punch...

[QUOTE=COLONEL SANDERS]this is not over and you know it you want it to be over because you know this is a bulchit win Solis was beating Vitali up until he injured his leg this is far from over[/QUOTE] He wasn't "beating him up." He was employing a decent, if cautious, opening strategy...

[QUOTE=crackman]Klitschko's are a disgrace to heavyweightboxing.. solis would have won and was clearly winning untill the knee thing.. it was due to him being overweight and poor positioning anyone can clearly see that was a glancing blow and not hard enough to knock anyone out. Vitali has passe...
