Jhonny Gonzalez Targets Title Battle With Orlando Salido

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (52-7, 45KOs) is ready for the next challenge, after overcoming mandatory challenger Elio Rojas last Saturday in Cancun. Before returning to Mexico City, Gonzalez announced that his promoter is already negotiating his next fight, a unification bout against fellow Mexican Orlando Salido, who holds the WBO featherweight crown. Gonzalez would like to have that fight in June if possible.

"My promoter Reginaldo Kuchle is trying to get that fight. It really interests me and I think its a good idea," Gonzalez said.

Orlando Salido (38-11-2, 26KOs) is one of the toughest possible opponents for Gonzalez. He recently knocked out Juan Manuel Lopez of Puerto Rico, twice. Salido is reportedly going to return on July 21 in Obregon but no opponent has been booked. Gonzalez said that he will rest for about ten days and then fly to El Paso, Texas, to meet with his promoter Oswaldo Kuchle and set his next fight.

should be an xcellent bout in Mex...Jhonny got hit a few rights in mid rounds, but man did he pound Rojas body...a clear victory & mayb he's strengthened the chin,...I pick him to beat Salido by decision...he's just not going…

And being drop by JM Lopez and Gamboa make you a glass chin? Some guys here don't know the concept of a weak chin at all, just like losing by ko to Mike Tyson make you a glass jaw too...

Both guys are seemingly in their stride and looking like the World Champs they are would be a clash of titans but sounds to good to be true it won't get made something will derail it.yeah i said it
