Jhonny Gonzalez Has Orlando Salido in Mind For Battle

By Miguel Rivera

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (51-7, 45KOs) has a tough fight ahead, but he wants to follow through and face Orlando "Siri" Salido (38-11, 26KOs), the featherweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), in the fall.

Gonzalez defends against Elio Rojas (23-1, 14KOs) on April 28th in Cancun. Salido is looking to return in late July

"This year we want the big fights. We want the big opportunities. One is against Elio Rojas and the other we want to pursue is a unification against Orlando Salido. It would be an important fight. We're been training in the gym since January, because the fight was set to happen in March. But now the scheduled date is April 28th. Much has been said and finally he gets the opportunity to challenge me. We will carry out a fight that the public wants to see," Gonzalez said.

"I would love to face Salido, but first we have the fight against Rojas, and we have to go in there 100%t focused, because we want to face these kinds of opponents."

Well sounds good Jhonny if you beat Rojas. That would be one hell of a match up between you and Salido. Its a 50/50 fight if Jhonny fights him on the outside and tags him with hard shots all night…

I would love to see this fight. I think Salido takes it, but Gonzalez is also a very hard puncher and has a chance of beating Salido. This could be another FOTY candidate if it's made.

I love seeing champions fighting each other and unifying the belts. Hope this happens.

Johnny can win. He's found something with Nacho. But Rojas a dangerous fight.

Very good matchup. Favor Salido due to Gonzalez's frail chin and his choke artist reputation
