Juanma: Salido Gets Clocked in Eight or Nine Rounds

By Rey Colon

Juan Manuel Lopez, the undefeated WBO featherweight champion, is almost at the weight of his division and he's ready for his next defense this Saturday against Mexico's Orlando Salido. He plans to win with his skills as a boxer and using quicker punches, but he also doesn't rule out a knockout. Juanma plans to box smart and won't allow himself to be reckless by looking for a quick knockout in the early rounds. He wants to break Salido down.

"I'm going back to the old school and using my amateur knowledge, but if we have to enter the zone of fire, we'll go. If there's a knockout, it will be in something like the eight or ninth round. I do not think it will come in the first round. If the knockout comes, it would be better, but I'm not going in there with that mentality. You have to please the public but with 30 fights you have to do it intelligently. Now I'm stronger and I won't get hurt, no way," Juanma said.

[QUOTE=TheMexHurricane;10366066][COLOR="Red"][SIZE="4"] It would be inaccurate to call Juanma great but it would also be inaccurate to say he won't be great. We have to wait and see to make a fair judgement. As for Salido, he's much better than his…

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;10365455]I'm looking forward to this fight. Salido is tough, but he's a very hit-able opponent. Orlando has said he wants to be hyper-aggressive in this bout. It seems like that'll play right into Lopez's plans, as JuanMa seems interested in…
