Solis TKOs Saglam in round seven

Cuban heavyweight contender Odlanier Solis (20-1, 13 KOs) scored a seventh round TKO over hard-hitting Turk Yakup Saglam (29-3, 26 KOs) to successfully defend his IBF intercontinental champion title on Saturday night in Cuxhaven, Germany. “La Sombra” put on a boxing clinic, showing the skills that made him an Olympic gold medalist. Action was slow at times and Saglam was warned by the referee in round six to fight or be disqualified. Solis dropped Saglam with a massive right hand in the seventh and the bout was stopped.

Junior welterweight Ignacio Mendoza (37-7-2, 23 KOs) from Colombia scored a hard fought twelve round unanimous decision over Ramon de la Cruz (13-7-2, 7 KOs) from Argentina to claim the vacant IBF intercontinental championship. Mendoza dropped De La Cruz in round two, but De La Cruz came back to floor Mendoza in rounds four and six. Mendoza, however, prevailed 117-111, 117-111, 114-111.

Former WBC Silver welterweight champion Selcuk Aydin (25-2, 18 KOs), returning to the jr welterweight division, stopped Aaron Herrera (25-3, 17 KOs) in round eight.
