I wanted to let Fightnews.com and the rest of the world know that the I have just been advised that Odlanier Solis has pulled out of our fight scheduled for November 26, 2013, in Sunrise, FL. Apparently, his promoter and manager signed him up for a guaranteed ass whooping that he wasn’t willing to receive and he’s looking for an easier name like Lucas Browne or [Artur] Szpilka. I’m sorry for all those that were looking forward to seeing me end Solis’ career but what can I do? This is the worst part of boxing, specifically the heavyweight division. Guys like Odlanier Solis are either too afraid or too fat to fight on a consistent basis. I’ve asked my team to continue to find the toughest and best fights out there regardless of who, where and when, and I will continue to chase opportunities across the globe.
