Archie Solis: Saul Alvarez Attacked Me Over a Woman

By Rick Reeno and Miguel Rivera

To follow-up an earlier story on BoxingScene.com , IBF 108-pound champion Ulises "Archie" Solis has provided details of a physical altercation with WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, which took place in Guadalajara, Mexico.

As previously reported, Alvarez confronted Solis, who says the altercation took place at a local running ground where both of them were training - and not in the street as reported earlier. He says 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 will undergo surgery later tonight and a planned defense in December is obviously going to be canceled.

"I ran into Alvarez when I finished training. Suddenly he began to claim a lot of things. He asked, 'why are you with my woman?'. I told him that I didn't know what he was talking about and then without warning he hit me with a left and right cross. I went back and then he threw a couple of more punches, one hit me in the temple and one to my chest. I wanted it to stop," Solis said.

Solis' brother ran to his aid and quickly took him to a hospital. They also filed a report with the local authorities.

In an earlier report , Solis' promoter, Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, advised BoxingScene that a criminal case, and a civil suit for damages, will be pursued against Alvarez.

"There will be criminal charges. It's sad because Canelo is denying everything. Finally he fought a good fighter, except it took place in the street. I think Canelo went over to Archie because of something he said about him. The version we have is the version of Archie Solis. He said that Canelo came to him and said 'I was looking for you **** and you ****.' Then he pushed him. And then he started attacking him with punches. He broke his jaw and broke a tooth. He's going to have surgery later tonight," Beltran told BoxingScene.com.

"It's sad because this sport has a lot of issues, and Canelo is a good prospect and a lot of people talk about him, and we don't need this with a guy like him attacking a good little champion at 108. And by the way, it was a technical knockout because [Canelo] couldn't drop [Solis]. Canelo is denying everything. I have the version of Archie Solis. Everyone, the Mexican press, is at the hospital with Archie."

"We are going to put out the pictures of his jaw and there were four witnesses there. He's going to proceed with a lawsuit because it's not fair. He had a fight scheduled for December and now his year is over. Maybe it's the end of his career? Who knows if he can fight again? It's sad that a champion at 154-pounds would do this to another champion at 108."

Alvarez denied the allegations to several third-party sources.

I´m not buying this history, if there is one guy prone to lose his mind and do something stupid, that is Solís, not Canelo. Maybe he got what he deserved.
