IBF light flyweight world champion Ulises “Archie” Solis
WBC junior middleweight champ Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is being accused of breaking 108 lb. titlist Ulises Solis’ jaw during a street brawl in Guadalajara yesterday. Solis suffered a broken jaw and a cracked tooth. According to Solis, the incident began while both fighters were doing their jogging and Alvarez confronted him.
“I ran into Alvarez after training and I moved to the side to let him pass,” Solis told El Universal newspaper. “He ran into me. He asked me, ‘Why are you messing with my woman?’ I told him that I don’t even know her and all of a sudden he hit me with a left and right cross that fractured my jaw. I fell back and he hit me with two more punches– To the temple and the chest.”
Canelo told the Mexican media that it was his brother who hit Solis.
“It’s not true at all. [The fight] wasn’t with me. It was with one of my brothers, but not with me. I was there. I just want to clarify that it’s not true,” Alvarez said.
Solis was scheduled to defend his title in December but is being forced to pull out as he will be having surgery today. Solis’ promoter, Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions has stated he will take legal actions against Canelo.
Canelo and Marisol
Though Alvarez denied being the aggressor and indicated that it was actually his brother who had attacked Solis, Solis states other wise. There are always 3 sides to the story, Solis story, Canelo’s story and the truth.
It’s not the first time Canelo had problems over his baby mamma or his recent girlfriend, Marisol Gonzalez. The 27 year-old reporter recently broke up with the 20 year-old super star and rumor is Canelo proposed to her and will do anything to save his romance.
