Odlanier Solis Could Return on October 18th in Mexico

By Per Ake Persson

Cuxhaven - As previously reported, Arena Box Promotion returned to the Kugelback Hall on the German North Sea coast. Heavyweight Odlanier Solis, now 20-1, knocked out overmatched Yakub Saglam, 28-3, at 2:30 of the seventh to retain the IBF I/C title. Saglam was beaten to the punch whenever he tried so do so something but then he discovered that if he didn't punch then Solis didn´t punch either and referee Jean Pierre van Imschoot had to remind the fighters three times to fight and threatened Saglam with disqualification if he didn´t pick it up. Solis finally opened up in the seventh for a clean finish.

Next up could be a fight in Mexico on October 18.

"He´s a lazy [son of a b*tch]," said promoter Ahmet Oener. "He only fights as hard as he has to. Solis is also an exellent boxer and can still be a threat."

Hopefully he fights someone half decent then. He's a lazy and frustrating sob, but he's still a top fighter and exciting to see against top 30 HW's.

lol Sounds like Oner is reaching unbearable heights of frustration with Solis. Can't say I feel sorry for him. :lol1:

I don't know how Solis finds the time to box inbetween eating cheeseburgers and doing nothing.

I had read he was fighting Oct 18 in MX in a Mexico City paper, participating in the WBC World Cup, along w/Fres Oquendo...
