Orlando Salido To Appear on Republica Deportiva

MIAMI —  On the heels of his spectacular knock-out victory over Puerto Rico’s Orlando Cruz, WBO Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido will appear on Univision’s Republica Deportiva this Sunday, December 1st.  The weekly sports program is one of the few Spanish-language shows of its type, and consistently garners high ratings from viewers and critics.  “It’s an honor to appear on Republica Deportiva. It is one of the best sports shows on television,” said Salido of the opportunity.

The three-time World Champion departed Phoenix for Miami on Saturday to talk with the top-rated show's host Fernando Fiore about reclaiming his WBO Featherweight belt.  “It was the greatest moment of my career,” said Salido after his October 12th victory, which was broadcast on HBO Pay-Per-View.  The WBO Featherweight belt was left vacant when Mikey Garcia failed to make weight ahead of his June 15th bout versus Juan Manuel Lopez.

Salido will also discuss his next fight, a March 1st clash versus Vasyl Lomachenko, which will be broadcast on HBO Boxing.   Lomachenko is coming off his professional debut, a knock-out win against Jose Ramirez. The two-time Olympic Gold Medal winner, who hails from Ukraine, is facing stiff competition in Salido, who does not plan to relinquish his belt.  Salido has eighteen years experience in the professional ranks, and sports a record of 40-12-2, with 28 knockouts.

Viewers can tune in to Sunday’s show on Univision at 11 a.m. EST, 8 a.m. PST.
