The IBF jr. flyweight title will be up for grabs Saturday April 30, as champion Luis “Mosquito” Lazarte (48-9-2, 18 KO) defends in a rematch against Ulises “Archie” Solis (32-2-3, 21 KO). Lazarte’s 3rd title defense will be held again at the Club Atletico Once Unidos, in Mar Del Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Lazarte, now 40 years of age, defeated Carlos Tamara last May to win the IBF jr. flyweight title, after 4 prior attempts at a world title.
Solis held the aforementioned IBF trinket for more than 3 years, beating Will Grigsby in 2006 to win the title. After 8 successful defenses, Solis lost his title to Brian Viloria in 2009.
Lazarte and Solis previously met on December 18, 2010, with the foul-filled fight ending in a majority draw. Lazarte repeatedly hit Solis behind the head in the fight, bit him, and was subsequently docked 2 points. Two judges scored the bout 113-113, while John Madfis saw the bout 117-109 in favor of Solis.
