SOLIS-THOMPSON 2



Cuban, Odlanier “Sombra” Solis, will have a much anticipated rematch against American, Tony Thompson, tonight on a card presented by  promoter, Ahmet Öner, at the Gloria Sports Arena, in the Gloria Hotels and Resorts, Turkey.

In their first fight was last March. Thompson snatched victory via a split decision, following a very competitive bout, which was also held in Turkey.
 
This time around, Solis is absolutely determined to turn the tables and get the victory, with the WBC Continental Americas title on the line.
 
At the weigh in Thompson tipped 261 pounds, meanwhile Solis tipped 272 pounds.
 
In another interesting match, German, Aziz Karaoglu (2-0-0, 2 KOs) will face Italian, Maurizio Lovaglio (18-10-0, 11 Kos), with the WBC Mediterranean cruiserweight title at stake.
 
Both boxers didn’t have any trouble making the weight.
