Solis' Lawyer Aims To Have Canelo's License Suspended

By Miguel Rivera

BoxingScene.com has been informed that Pedro Pulido, the attorney for IBF junior flyweight champion Archie Solis, will move for an immediate suspension of Saul "Canelo" Alvarez's boxing license. On October 25th, Alvarez, the WBC's champion at 154-pounds, allegedly confronted Solis at a local running ground in Guadalajara, Mexico, where both of them were training.

According to Solis, Alvarez accused him of messing around with his girlfriend, and then attacked him with multiple punches. Solis suffered a broken jaw and a broken tooth. He recently underwent surgery to repaire two fractures in his jaw.

The injuries suffered by Solis will prevent him from moving forward with a scheduled title defense in December. The doctors have advised Solis that his injuries will take at least seven to eight months to fully heal. Based on their diagnosis, Solis won't be able to fight until the summer of 2012 at the earliest.

Solis has already filed a criminal complaint against Alvarez and plans to pursue a civil case for damages. Alvarez denied the allegations and told Mexican reporter Sal Rodriguez that one of his brothers attacked Solis.

Solis' lawyer will now pursue a license suspension on three legal fronts:

A. - The basis that licensed pro boxers are legally not allowed to use their hands as weapons.

B. - A criminal act was committed with the beating of Solis.

C. - Alvarez, based on his actions, should face a suspension for the exact length of time that it takes for Solis to recover from his injuries. 

If Solis' legal team is able to suspend Alvarez's license, a scheduled November 26th title defense against Kermit Cintron will be cancelled.

Solis is obligated by the IBF to defend his title every six months. The recovery time will jeopardize his title reign, and he doesn't know if his injuries will properly heal in the correct manner where he's able to continue his career.

"My career is not going to be the same. My career is in danger, because these types of injuries do not heal very easy. Also, my championship is in jeopardy. I can lose it, because the IBF gives you six months to defend the title. My career could be finished," Solis stated to Robert Alarcan.

[QUOTE=chaos;11357011]Solis is taking the wrong angle here. If he really wants to make money he should tell Saul to pay for his medical bills and agree to fight him in the ring in exchange for dropping the lawsuits. Win or…

Canelo will make Solis disappear before this happens.
