By Miguel Rivera

According to World Boxing Council President Jose Sulaiman, Olympic gold medal winner Odlanier Solis (19-1, 12KOs) has agreed to take part in the WBC's first World Cup. The Cuban heavyweight is currently training with coach Pedro Diaz. The World Cup is a tournament style competition being put together by the WBC.

The tournament will start in Mexico City on a yet to be announced date, and World Cup events will take place in a number of cities around the world. The WBC expects to have 48 fighters participate in four weight divisions of the ten federations affiliated with the sanctioning body.

I bet this world cup has most of its fights overseas, otherwise it won't work. That is unless they can get some real names in there in each division

[QUOTE=Own3d;13425281]No it involves 4 weight divisions, so your Vitali reasoning is garbage.[/QUOTE] Just because there 4 weight classes doesn't mean the winners wouldn't be top contenders.That would make sense and it would make it more exciting.

[QUOTE=croz;13424718]I heard about this ages ago. Basically the plan was that when Vitali retires they would have a world cup type eliminator between all the young prospects to see who gets his title. I think it's basically also a plan…
