Wladimir Klitschko vs Odlanier Solis possible, Tyson Fury livid

Christof Koepsel

Wladimir Klitschko may face Odlanier Solis if rumors out of Germany prove correct, which has sent Tyson Fury into one of his patented fits.

World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is likely to return on April 6, and rumors out of Germany indicate that former Cuban Olympic star Odlanier Solis may be his opponent.

Solis (18-1, 12 KO) fought older brother Vitali Klitschko in 2011, blowing out his knee in the first round. There are some who still maintain that he had an effective game plan, but given that the fight lasted a whopping 2:59, I think that's pretty impossible to state with any real confidence.

After a lengthy layoff, Solis, who has been dogged for his fitness (or lack thereof) as a professional, returned in May 2012 with a win over Konstantin Airich over 12 rounds. Solis weighed in at 267½ pounds for that fight, which is grossly out of shape for a pro athlete with his frame, near his career high of 271.

Tyson Fury, the 6'9" British prospect, ssays he's ready to step up and fight Wladimir, in his usual fashion:

"Klitschko, if you fight Solis you are a pussy....fight me! Solis is a fat shit [and] got [knocked out] by Vitali in [one]," Fury blasted on the social networks.

Of course, Solis was not knocked out by Vitali in one, though Fury's other criticism of the Cuban is valid, I suppose. Fury is also the guy who keeps telling the world how great Kevin Johnson is, so grain of salt and all that.
