Oner calls for Deontay Wilder vs. Odlanier Solis showdown: “U.S. power vs. Latino power”

Ahmet Öner, promoter of heavyweight contender Odlanier Solis, has called for a clash between his fighter and Deontay Wilder after Wilder’s spectacular KO against Sergey Liakhovich on Friday night.

“I don’t want to take anything away from Wilder. 29 wins and 29 KOs certainly speaks for a good build-up and a good job in matchmaking. But I don’t see Wilder as the next big thing – at least not until he fought a real opponent. I suggest for Wilder to step up and face my Olympic gold medalist and former world title challenger Odlanier Solis. Wilder may be the best US heavyweight but he surely isn’t the best in America. Solis is the best Latino heavyweight and one of the best fighters in the world. I don’t think Wilder and his handlers will accept a fight against Solis but I’m sure that Showtime would love it and do the fight. I did business with Golden Boy in the past. I have no problems with them. Richard, let’s get it on. Wilder vs. Solis – U.S. power vs. Latino power – the winner gets Klitschko!”–Ahmet Öner
