The contracts for the WBC heavyweight championship between Vitali Klitschko and Odlanier Solis have been signed this week. The fight will take place on March 19th at Cologne’s Lanxess Arena. Solis’ promoter Ahmet Oner is looking forward to the fight and convinced that his fighter will end the Klitschko’s reign.
"It’s about time that somebody shows Vitali and Wladimir how overrated they really are“, says Oner. "A German newspaper stated that Vitali laughs about Solis. The Klitschkos display such an incredible arrogance. On March 19th Solis will make Vitali stop laughing and start suffering for his autocratic manners. The Klits and their management tried to avoid this fight. They tried everything they could not to fight Solis.
"They tried to pull tricks on the WBC Convention last November and even last week before the deal was finalized and only one day before going into a possible purse bid they still tried to sneak out. I believe that his management also wanted to avoid facing one of my fighters again. Their only problem is: Now the deal is signed and the fight will go ahead – unless Vitali decides to pull out on short notice because of some fake injury. You never know with these guys. Still Solis and I made it. We have reached the point where we always wanted to be. Now we’ll do the final step and strip the belt from Vitali.
"In an interview Vitali stated that he respects Solis. Well, good for him. We don’t respect Vitali. He’s a weak world champion who only beat weak opposition. In his only real tough fight against a world class opponent he lost to Lennox Lewis – although Lennox was way past his prime at that time.
"Since Vitali came back out of retirement in 2008 he only fought living sandbags. He celebrated himself as all time great champion although he merely was the one-eyed king in the land of the blind. His brother is avoiding his toughest test against David Haye as well and fights a no-name tomato can like Chisora instead. I read Wladimir called Haye a 'piece of sh*t'. Now that’s something. That’s as if I would call somebody a 'crazy Turk'. I didn’t even know that a true gentleman like Klitschko ever uses a bad word like sh*t. Well, Solis will find a way to end all this b*tching around.
"My Cuban sensation will beat all these overrated douchebags Vitali, Wladimir and then Haye one after another to unify the heavyweight championships. Solis’ fight against Vitali marks a historical turning point ending the Klitschko era.“
