Juan Carlos Salgado Expects a War With Martin Honorio

By Miguel Rivera

Juan Carlos Salgado (24-1-1, 16 KOs), the super featherweight champion of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), expects a war in April, when he faces experienced countryman Martin Honorio (32-6-1, 16 KOs). Honorio is the mandatory challenger. The bout is going to happen in Mexico, but the exact location has not been determined. In his last fight, Salgado fought Miguel Beltran to a two-round no-contest after a clash of heads. Salgado says the cut he suffered in the fight has healed and he's ready for a great performance.

"We have a mandatory fight with Martin Honorio, according to our promoter. He said it's going to be in mid-April, possibly in a city in Mexico and we are with the whole mentality of training to the max to defend our title. The fight with the Honorio is very important because he is tough and has a lot of experience. I've had more fights and we must prepare ourselves to come in at 100% to win convincingly and hope to have a great fight, which is what we want," said Salgado to Osiris Cruz.

"We work very hard. We want to further strengthen everything physically, and that's where we plan to start the preparation. We also want to improve our speed. We have enough time to prepare very well, and the cut from the last fight has healed. We have all of the momentum in our favor to show why we are world champions."
