Solis, Oner Speak: It Was The Knee, Not Vitali's Punch!

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (42-2, 39KOs) had a very quick victory when he stopped 2004 Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis (17-1, 12KOs) in the first round of their contest at the Lanxess-Arena in Cologne, Germany. Klitschko landed a right hand at the end of the round, which made the Cuban star stumble back and take a bad fall which injured his right knee. The doctors believe that Solis suffered a ligament rupture and a possible meniscus tear.

"It was my knee. I think I took a wrong step back and then I stumbled. I hurt my knee and couldn't continue. These things happen in boxing. I think it's going to take a long time to recover," Solis said.

Solis' promoter Ahmet Oner of Arena Box said - "It wasn't the result of Vitali's punch. Odlanier hurt his knee. I'm very concerned about it."

well that was a shame. in the 3 minutes that i seen solis was doing very well also, looked like he was there for more than just making the numbers up. tagged vitali with some nice shots.

[QUOTE=bojangles1987]It's actually more embarrassing for Solis's career if he claims the punch didn't land, because it makes him look like a bum that can't take a step without tearing his knee up. Seriously, what a joke. I think Vitali was as pissed off as anyone here is.[/QUOTE] And that'...

Solis should be thankful his knee saved him from the inevitable worst beating of his life. End of story.
