Jorge Iván Solís Pérez (born October 23, 1979 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico), is a Mexican professional boxer.[1] He is a former holder of various minor and regional titles including, the Jalisco State Featherweight title, WBC Latin America title, Mexican Super Bantamweight and Featherweight divisions and WBA Fedecentro titles.[2] He's also the brother of former IBF Champion Ulises Solís.

Pro career[edit]

Solís started his professional boxing career in 1998 at 112 pounds at the age of 19. His early fights usually took place in Mexico. His first professional fight was a four-round bout against Bernardo Tule (2-1-0) on February 6, 1998, which Solís won via technical knockout (TKO).

His first fight in the United States of America was against Juan Jose Mendez (3-2-1) on September 2, 2000 in the Don Haskins Center, El Paso, Texas, which he won in the 6th round by technical knockout.

On October 27, 2001 Solís faced Ruben Estanislao (13-3-1) for the Mexican Super Bantamweight Championship, which he won and defended it against Jorge Munoz (22-17-2), Sammy Ventura (17-8-0) and Fernando Alanis (16-14-3).

On June 6, 2003 Solis faced Wilson Alcorro (20-4-2) for the WBC Latin America Super Featherweight Title but the bout ended in a draw.

In September 2004, Solis fought future champion Humberto Soto (35-5-2) in a bout which resulted in a "no contest" decision. Solis was knocked to the canvas by Soto in the third round, but the fight was stopped later in the round after Solis suffered a cut due to an accidental clash of heads.[3] Humberto Soto, who was ahead on all scorecards, disputed the outcome claiming that the cut was the result of a punch and not a head clash.[4]

Solis vs Pacquiao[edit]

On April 14, 2007, Solis faced off against reigning WBC International Super-Featherweight champion, then three-division world champion Manny Pacquiao (43-3-2) in San Antonio, Texas. Solis provided a tougher challenge than expected, however, Pacquiao proved too much for the number four ranked challenger.[5] Pacquiao unleashed a barrage of lethal punches to knock-out the unbeaten Solis in the eighth round. In the Philippines, this match was called as The Blaze of Glory.

After being beaten by Pacquiao, Jorge defeated Santiago Allione (13-4-0) at the Arena Coliseo in Guadalajara by Technical Knockout. On January 31, 2009 in Zapopan, Jalisco, Solís scored a fifth-round technical knockout of Monty Meza Clay (28-1-0) in an IBF title eliminator.[6]

Solis vs Cruz[edit]

On July 11, 2009, Solis challenged IBF featherweight champion Cristobal Cruz (38-11-1), whom Solis had previously defeated, but lost by unanimous decision. During the bout, Solis was docked 4 points for intentional low blows while Cruz was docked two points for headbutting. The final scores were 113-110, 113-110, and 113-111 in favor of Cruz.[7] Solis moved up to the Super Featherweight division in his next bout and defeated Likar Ramos by 7th-round TKO to claim the WBA interim Super featherweight title.

On May 8, 2010, Solis defended his interim title against Mario Santiago by a wide unanimous decision on the under-card of Latin Fury 14.

Gamboa vs Solis[edit]

On March 26, 2011, Solis got a chance to take on the Unified WBA World and IBF Featherweight Champion Yuriorkis Gamboa (19-0, 15 KO's). Solis was completely and utterly dominated by Gamboa and was knocked out in the fourth round in what was a dazzling display of boxing skills from Gamboa.
