ESPN-Odlanier Solis has sustained serious knee injuries
BERLIN -- Odlanier Solis has sustained serious knee injuries in his first-round knockout defeat by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday.
The 30-year-old Cuban was taken to hospital, where a scan revealed tears to his anterior cruciate ligament and external meniscus, as well as cartilage damage in his right knee.
The crowd in Cologne was disappointed by the 179-second bout. The fans booed and whistled for several minutes after it ended.
Klitschko said he's "sorry for the spectators. I don't fight for me, I fight for them."
The 39-year-old Ukrainian had delivered a right to Solis' left temple, when the Cuban wobbled back and fell on his back before clutching his knee.
It was Solis' first defeat in 18 pro fights. Klitschko improved to 42-2.

At first i thought it was a stunning KO, Then i saw the replay and the punch was landed with mininum power so i thought Solis was chinny. But if he has done this injury then maybe it would spur him on to take this sport seriously and cut himself down to the lower 210s.

That takes him out for at least a year, I'd imagine. Shame.
What worries me most is that he'll be unable to do physical work for a while and when he finally does make it back he'll be back over 270lbs again.

There should be a limit on how much body fat professional boxers can have before they step into the ring.

Not sure why anyone doubted this and thinks what happened instead was a result of a devastating KO/quit job.
It's a shame cos I actually thought he looked very decent last night, maybe the best HW outside of the Klits.

but to think that that glancing blow scrambled solis' brain and caused him to act the way he did is just over-the-top fanboyism.
