Olympic gold medalist Odlanier Solis of Cuba defended his World Boxing Council International heavyweight championship title Saturday when Costa Rican Carl Drummond quit after three rounds.

Solis and Drummond were scheduled for 10 rounds in the main event of Fight Night in the Keys in an outdoor ring at Mallory Square.

Solis (16-0) dominated the first three rounds and just before round four was to begin, Drummond shook his head to the referee and the fight ended with a technical knockout win for Solis.

The bout began about 40 minutes late after Drummond had issues with pre-fight bandage wrapping of his hands.

In an earlier bout American Jorge Diaz scored an eight-round unanimous decision over Mexican Alejandro Lopez in a featherweight bout.
