JAMIE MCDONNELL VS LIBORIO SOLIS LIVE
Boxing returns to Monaco on Saturday night, as Matchroom promote a fight card boasting two world title fights and a world class heavyweight bout in the main event.Cuba’s 25-0 Luis Ortiz is one of the most powerful punchers in the world, and the 37-year-old makes his European debut against veteran Malik Scott in Monte Carlo.At 37, time is not on Ortiz’s side, but the Cuban has looked impressive in recent knockout victories over Tony Thompson and Bryant Jennings, and will be looking to defeat his third American opponent in a row.
Liborio Solís is aiming to become the second Venezuelan in recent months to defeat an English fighter when he challenges Jamie McDonnell for the WBA World Bantamweight title in Monte-Carlo on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.In September, Solís’ countryman Jorge Linares overcame Manchester’s Anthony Crolla with an impressive display of skill and speed and he hopes to make it a Venezuelan double in Monte Carlo and become a two-weight World king in the process.
“Linares did well beating another English fighter but that’s what he did and I have to write my own story,” said Solís.“It’s my turn now. McDonnell is good, he uses his jab well, he throws good combinations, he’s also a strong guy but what I have in my favour also is my World title experience. I have to win this fight round by round and that’s what I’m going to do.”
Standing at 163cm, one of Solís’ biggest issues against McDonnell, who measures 178cm, will surely be the height disparity.“His height could affect me a little bit,” said Solís. “He is quite tall but I have to work him out and nullify the height difference – I’m preparing myself for this. He looks quite fast but I’m also fast and I’ve had five World title fights. I have that experience behind me and I have shown people that I have the tools and potential to win a World title.
