Vitali Klitschko vs Solis Is Set

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko will defend his belt on March 19th against 30 year old Cuban Odlanier „La Sombra“ Solis on March 19th at the LANXESS Arena in Cologne, Germany.

Solis was the Olympic gold medalist in Athens 2004 and had a amazing amateur record wtih 241 fights and 227 wins.  He was also 3 time world amateur champion and became the WBC #1 contender and Vitali's official mandatory when he defeated Ray Austin in the title elimination bout in Miami on December 17 by 10th round disqualification.

Should be an interesting fight.  I just dont think Solis will have what it takes when it his later rounds.  His conditioning is not great and his talent has carried him by the likes of guys like Austin, but at the elite level its going to effect him drastically. Look for a late round stoppage for Vitali.
