Kerman Lejarraga vs. Luis Solis is Set Down For June 8

By Elisinio Castillo

Welterweight contender Kerman Lejarraga is already set to return for the first time since suffering his first career defeat, which came last month at the hands of veteran boxer David Avanesyan in their EBU title clash.

Lejarraga will face Mexico's Luis "Muecas" Solis on June 8 in Bilbao.

Solis, 27, has a record of 25 victories (21 KOs), 9 defeats (3 KOs) and 4 draws and is a "puncher accustomed to facing former world champions", a quote highlighted from the promoter of Lejarraga.


As confirmed by MGZ Promotions, the company which promotes Lejarraga overseas, the Latino title of the World Boxing Council (WBC) will also be at stake in the fight.

"The Mexican fighters demand the most and I want to show that I'm still ready for everything, and I was looking for an opponent like that because the fans that come to Bilbao deserve to see real boxing," said Lejarraga about this fight.

"Boxing must be true and in this fight here there is a real risk.

Lejarraga is ranked 13th in the world under the WBC and aspires to return to the 'top 10' with a victory against the Yucatan fighter.

Txutxi del Valle, the coach of Lejarraga, has commented that the upcoming contest will feature "two punchers and will guarantee an exciting fight. The novice must understand that he is facing one of those nights where everything can happen. Give your support because those little details will make a difference."

This fight between Lejarraga and Solis completes a card which is also scheduled to feature a European title clash between Andoni Gago and Jesús Sánchez and a defense of the WBC world youth title by Jon Míguez against unbeaten Englishman Danny Ball.
