Trainer Pedro Luis Diaz is delighted with the current weight of Odlanier Solis (17-0, 12KOs). The unbeaten Cuban will challenge WBC champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday in Cologne, Germany. There have been many questions regarding the conidtioning of Solis, who in the past has struggled with weight. Diaz is confident the performance of Solis will satisfy those questions on Saturday.
"My boxer is at the ideal weight to beat Vitali Klitschko. No more, no less. Just enough. There will be a big surprise on Saturday that no one would could predict. Solis' preparation has been designed and prepared, down to the smallest detail. Vitali does not know what kind of trouble he is in for. Odlanier is in the prime of his career. We've reviewed Vitali's opponents over the years and saw that none of them have the quality of Solis. Not in speed nor movement, nor the boxing IQ. Again, on Saturday there will be a surprise," Diaz said.
