After five weeks of intensive training in his home town of Guadalajara, Mexican challenger Jorge “Coloradito” Solis has arrived in Merida, home of the February 6 fight against Colombian champion Likar Ramos for the WBA interim super featherweight world title. The battle between Solis (37-2-2, 27 KOs) and Ramos (21-2, 15 KOs) is promoted by Zanfer and Max Boxing Promotions and will be aired in Mexico on TV Azteca.
The 30 year-old Solis reached Merida with his coach Willibald Arroyo and Humberto “Betillo” Gutierrez who helped him in sparring sessions, along with Edgar and Cesar Solis to finish his final preparation.
“The idea is to get used to the humidity in Merida because in Guadalajara it was quite cold. This week the goal is to close strong and to keep on the weight so we have no problem,” said Solis.
For Solis, this will be the second fight for a world title after his last bout in July of 2009 when he lost by a controversial decision in 12 rounds against the IBF featherweight champ Cristobal Cruz.
