Solis beats Austin by DQ, Cloud and Mayorga triumph

boxingOdlanier Solis: I wanted to make Austin suffer for the things he said at the press conferences leading up to the fight. I didnt like it when he said that when he was done with me, they were going to send me back to Cuba. Now I sent him back to Cleveland where all they have are cows.

I wasnt tired at all. It was my strategy to fight the way I did tonight. Whats the worst thing that could have happened? I could have knocked him out or made him look ridiculous, which I did.

At the post-fight press conference: I dont think Im fat. What I would like to do is slap around some of the newspaper writers that say Im fat.

Ray Austin: Solis will beat Vitali Klitschko. Hes accurate and has a good defense. He rests and recovers well, too. The only downside I see might be his chin..

He showed a lot. I see him being the next WBC heavyweight champion. Hes good.

Tavoris Cloud: I got hit with a headbutt in the second round that caused a cut over my left eye, but Zuniga was a tough guy. I knew I had better skills but he came into this fight in good shape.

I only give my performance a B tonight. I will tell you I took this man seriously because I knew he would come to fight.

I want the winner of Pascal-Hopkins tomorrow night, or Chad Dawson if he ever decides he wants to fight me.

Fulgencio Zuniga: Both times I went down were from headbutts. I thought I did enough to win.

Cloud was a strong guy, a champion and a hard puncher. But I was still proud of my performance.

Ricardo Mayorga: I showed tonight that I can still fight. [Michael] Walker thought he had something for me, but the outcome was never in doubt. El Matador is back.
