Heavyweight contender Odlanier Solis is still at "St. Wolfgang Hospital“ in Bad Griesbach (Germany) waiting for his next knee surgery after suffering a bad knee injury in the WBC heavyweight champioship bout against Vitali Klitschko on March 19th. In a first surgery the arterior cruciate ligament in his right knee had been replaced and his meniscus had been sewed. On April 15th the articular cartilage damage will be fixed.

 

This Tuesday (April 5th) the Cuban former amateur standout celebrated his 31st birthday although he didn’t want to eat the cheese cake presented by ARENA and the hospital crew.

 

"I will try it just to be polite“, says Solis. "I am very careful with my diet at the moment. Once I can leave the hospital I want to start training right away to return to the ring as fast as possible.“

 

Solis is scheduled to return to Miami around April 20th to start his rehab training. Accordung to Dr. med. Heinz-Jürgen Eichhorn, "La Sombra“ could be ready to return to the ring in October. "I hope that Vitali will give me an immediate rematch“, states Solis.

 

"I would suggest to do the fight in Cologne again with free admission for all the fans who had bought a ticket for the first fight. They spent a lot of money to see a great battle and a great show. That’s exacty what I would give them if Vitali has the balls to face me again.“

That really surprised me, it seems as though he knows himself he can not get to the next level weighing what he does. A very good sign imo

I hope the surgery goes well for him. I think it unlikely he gets a rematch. He's offering free tickets but not to fight for free - if the crowd didn't get the fight they should have then he hasn't earn't the money from the 1st fight.

 

I wonder what the landscape will be in October, will it be the status quo of the Klitschko's holding the belts or 4 new vacant belts left behind by Haye, as he strolls into retirement.
