Solis vs. Thompson Rematch Once Again Postponed

By Per Ake Persson

The rematch between heavyweights Odlanier Solis and Tony Thompson, that after many postponements was set for February 27 in Budapest (Hungary), is once again off. The Solis vs. Thompson II show was a co-promotion between Felix-Promotion and Arena Box Promotion (headed by Ahmet Oener) - but the head of Felix-Promotion, Felix Racz, states that Arena´s Hungarian representatives had paid only 20% of the expenses at the final deadline which was Thursday (Feb 5). According to Racz, everything was all set including a camera team to televise the show first on Sport TV and later on EuroSport.
Racz wants to make it clear he doesn´t feel Ahmet Oener is to blame, but rather Arena´s local representatives who failed to live up to their promises.
For Odlanier Solis, who lost the first time around to Thompson in March of last year after another slowpaced, lazy performance - a win in the rematch is crucial to get his career back on track. The rematch was first set for early this fall but has since been postponed a few times for various reasons.
