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. 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.

Solis vs Pacquiao

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. 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.

Solis vs Cruz

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. 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

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.
