Odlanier Solis Comeback Delayed Again, Legal Issues

A couple of weeks ago promoter Ahmet Oner announced that Cuban Olympic gold medalist and multiple world amateur champion Odlanier Solis would give his comeback from an eight months injury lay-off this Saturday (Nov. 26) as co-feature of the WBC silver welterweight championship between Selcuk Aydin and Jo Jo Dan in Trabzon, Turkey.

Solis and his team were scheduled to leave Miami today but couldn’t fly out because of pending legal issues. A court order prohibits "La Sombra" to leave the United States until mid December. "I’m very disappointed", said promoter Ahmet Oner who received the bad news this afternoon in Turkey. "From what I’m told it’s not too serious and the whole thing should be settled soon but, of course, it annoys me that my fighter cannot fulfil his obligations and take a fight he has signed for. We all make mistakes – and I know what I’m talking about – but it’s important that you learn from your mistakes. I hope this is what Solis does as well."

The good news is however that Solis would have been medically cleared and fit to fight only eight months after seriously injuring his knee when challenging Vitali Klitschko back in March. "He was ready to go", adds Oner. "Now we’ll see what we will do. We will probably bring him back early next year when all legal issues have been solved. I am still convinced that Solis is the only heavyweight in the world today who can actually beat both Klitschko brothers. It’s too bad he cannot prove that this Saturday in Turkey."
