Klitschko-Solis Update: Odlanier Wants 1.5 Million Euros!

By Inna Lagun,

The team behind WBC mandatory heavyweight challenger, Odlanier Solis, have begun negotiations with the camp of WBC champion Vitali Klitschko. Solis beat Ray Austin last Friday in Miami, Florida to earn the shot at Klitschko. The fight is already having some issues as Solis is requesting 1.5 million euros for the contest. The parties have to reach an agreement by January 7 or the contest will head to a purse bid.

"If the teams do not come to an agreement, the right to host the bout will be auctioned off at the purse bid," said Bernd Boente, manager of Klitschko.

If it goes to a purse bid, the champion will receive a 70-30 split in his favor. The style of the negotiations should not surprise Team Klitschko. Promoter Don King, who is now handling Solis along with Ahmet Oner of Arena Box, was the person most blamed for the failure in reaching a deal between Vitali and "Russian Giant" Nikolai Valuev. King made several "high" demands that forced Vitali to secure fights against other foes like Albert Sosnowski and Shannon Briggs.

Vitali loves freedom. No communist will ever stand a chance with him. Just ask the communists back in the Ukraine, he once took on about 200 of them all at once.

[QUOTE=Steelhammer2010;9828013]Solis will end up like Gomez. Another Cuban hope destroyed by Vitali. [IMG][/IMG][/QUOTE] That's right Fidel Castro is going to take away Solis' remaining family's food ration cards after this fight. Vitaly makes another Cuban quit.
