Odlanier Solis vs. Tony Thompson: Preview and Prediction for Heavyweight Bout

Saturday night in Istanbul, American heavyweight contender Tony Thompson faces former Cuban amateur Odlanier Solis. Thompson has been stopped twice by Wladimir Klitschko—in 2008 and 2012.

Solis was knocked out in one by older brother Vitali Klitschko in 2011. 

Still, they both remain formidable opponents in the division. I would judge both men at least a fight or two away from any potential title shots, but a win will at least keep them in the line.
