Botha Solis On For June 27th

On Saturday June 27Th up-and-coming heavyweight and 2004 Olympic gold medalist Odlanier Solis (9(6 KO's), 0 , 0) will face former heavyweight champion Franz "White Buffalo" Botha (45(25 KO's),4(4 KO's), 2) in his 1st major clash at heavyweight. This is a move from the original fight date of May 30Th.

If Solis can pull out a win over a game heavyweight such as Francois Botha, you could expect to see the 6'1/2", 28 year old Solis get even higher level fights soon, and good rankings with the major boxing organizations. Franz Botha has fought several World Heavyweight Champions including Mike Tyson, Shannon Briggs, Axel Schulz, Michael Moorer, Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko.

Solis also plans to fight another match earlier in the month in Germany against Harry Duiven Jr. (12 (10 ko's) - 2 (1 ko) - 1).
