IBF light-flyweight champion Ulysses ‘Archie’ Solis has accused WBC light-middleweight champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez of beating him up and fracturing his jaw.
Solis reportedly claims that Alvarez hit him with a straight right hand and left hook during a fracas at the Barranca de Oblates in Jalisco, Guadalajara, Mexico. Both men were training there and ‘Canelo’ is said to have allegedly accused Solis of getting too close to his girlfriend. It has also been reported that Solis will undergo surgery later today and plans to press charges.
Eddy Reynoso,, the manager and trainer of Alvarez claims the allegations are completely false. Reynoso is quoted on Fightnews.com, as saying: “Those rumors of a fist fight between Saul and Archie are nothing but lies, Saul’s mind is hundred percent on Kermit Cintron.
“His focus is on his training camp and I don’t know where this rumor came from, he is into what he is doing and that is preparing himself very hard to face a tough opponent in Cintron.”
Alvarez is set to defend his WBC light-middleweight crown against Kermit Cintron, in Mexico City on November 26.
