Photos: Salido Ripped and Ready For Juanma Rematch
Ciudad Obregon, Son. – The featherweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Orlando Salido, is preparing very hard for one of the most anticipated fights of the year. “Siri” Salido (37-11-2, 25 KOs) will defend his title against the man he dethroned dramatically in April of 2011, Puerto Rico’s Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez (31-1-0, 28 KOs). The fight is scheduled for March 10th at the Coliseum “Roberto Clemente” in Puerto Rico. TV Azteca and Showtime will televise.
“We’re almost reaching the point of a perfect preparation. I am very fast and very strong and we are doing well with the weight issue and we are prepared for war. I’ll be better prepared for Lopez physically and mentally. The Puerto Rican try to make a different fight, but I will apply the pressure and the war will start,” Salido said.
