Rigondeaux: Odlanier Solis Will Beat Vitali Klitschko

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Two Cuban countrymen, two undefeated Olympic gold medal winners, and both of them are fighting on the same day - March 19. In Germany, Odlanier Solis (17-0, 12KOs) will challenge Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight title, and unbeaten junior featherweight contender Guillermo Rigondeaux will be defending interim-WBA title against Willie Casey in Ireland. Rigondeaux (8-0, 4 KOs) expects both of them to walk away with their hand raised.

"Too bad we are fighting on the same day, but I know that we are both going to walk with the same result - victory. Frankly, everyone who thinks Odlanier doesn't have what it takes to beat Klitschko are going to be in for a big surprise,'' said Rigondeaux to George Ebro. "He is one of the smartest boxers I know. No wonder they call him 'The Shadow'. I'm going to be betting on him.''
