Felix Jr. on Solis Win, Targets Juan Diaz in 2015

By Ryan Burton

This past Saturday night lightweight contender Jose Felix Jr. improved his record to 28-1-1 with a vicious 3rd round knockout of Luis Solis.  The fight served as the main event of the latest edition of UniMas's Solo Boxeo series.

Felix dropped Solis in the second round then again in the third, prompting the referee to stop the fight as Solis was in no shape to continue. Felix said that he knew prior to the fight that his opponent could take a punch.

"Solis has great punch resistance. We knew going into the fight that he was tough. I was hitting him with some big shots and I landed some good shots at the right time to put him away," Felix explained.

The Sinaloa, Mexico native is now 2-0 since unsuccessfully challenging for the super featherweight WBA interim title in April. Felix struggled to make weight for that fight and has since moved up.

"I feel a a lot stronger at 135. Physically I feel better and I feel more power in my hands," said Felix.

Felix hopes to have a big year next year. He said that he hopes to face all of the the top fighters in the division and that he wants to be regarded as the best lightweight in the world.

"In 2015 I want all of the big names at 135. I really want to face (former champion) Juan "Baby Bull" Diaz  and keep fighting the best guys until I'm known as the best at 135. I will face whoever they put in front of me. I hope they make these fights for me," Felix told BoxingScene.com.

With lightweight king Terence Crawford moving up to 130 pounds the division is wide open.
