Former champion Ulises "Archie" Solis was dealt a blow, as his legal claims against Saul "Canelo" Alvarez were thrown out by the Eleventh Chamber of the Supreme Court in Guadalajara (Canelo's hometown). Solis was notified of it and he has 15 days to request an appeal before the judges of the district.
Solis suffering a beating on October 25, 2011 in Guadalajara - which Solis claims came at the hands of Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. Details on why there was a confrontation are still sketchy. Canelo has always denied his part in the fight, which allegedly had to do with a woman.
There were multiple reports where Canelo claimed the fight was between one of his brothers and Solis. But the former IBF junior flyweight champion claims Canelo was 100% the culprit of the alleged attack.
Solis suffered a broken jaw, multiple bruises and several of his teeth were knocked out. He underwent two surgeries to fix his jaw and was out of action for over a year. The IBF stripped him of his world title due to the inactivity. He also separated from wife due his mental state which developed after the beating. Then he faced Edgar Sosa in 2013, and he was knocked out in two rounds.
