Earlier yesterday in Guadalajara, WBC junior middleweight champ, Saul Alvarez and 108 lb. titlist, Ulises Solis were involved in an altercation that left the smaller fighter with a broken jaw and a cracked tooth.
According to Solis, the incident began while both fighters were doing their road work and Alvarez confronted him.
“I ran into Alvarez after training and I moved to the side to let him pass,” Solis told El Universal newspaper, “but he ran into me. He asked me, ‘Why are you messing with my woman?’ I told him that I don’t even know her and all of a sudden he hit me with a left and right cross that fractured my jaw. I fell back and he hit me with two more punches– To the temple and the chest.”
Solis’ brother ran to help and took the fighter to the hospital for evaluation and then to the local authorities to file a complaint.
The fighter is set to undergo surgery shortly and will miss his scheduled title defense in December.
Alvarez, in a statement made to the media shortly after the incident, denied being the aggressor and indicated that it was actually his brother who had attacked the junior flyweight star.
