There is a lot controversy in Germany with respect to Saturday night's heavyweight bout, which saw WBC champion Vitali Klitschko stop Odlanier Solis in one round. After landing a right hand on Solis, the 2004 Olympic gold medal winner lost his footing and fell backwards. During the fall Solis injured his right knee. He was unable to continue any futher and the fight was stopped. A subsequent examination at Cologne's University Hospital revealed that he had torn his cruciate ligament and damaged cartilage in the fall.

It was later revealed by German paper Die Welt, that Solis had pre-existing issues with his right knee. Now there is speculation on whether or not Solis should have went forward with the fight.

Cologne Arena spokesman Malte Mueller-Michaelis confirmed: "We knew it, but we didn't want to let it jeopardize the fight against Vitali. His manager Jose Perez knew about the previous problem, but it was thought it would go away if there was enough training and the muscle stabilised the knee."

[QUOTE=English puncher]Depends what they are saying![/QUOTE] the context here is that we can't critique whether vitali's punch was capable of scrambling solis' brain or not because we haven't been hit like that before. right? majority of boxing writers' opinion about what happened in a fight i...
