Orlando Salido Continues Victory Lap in Mexico City, Miami

Orlando "Siri" Salido the WBO featherweight champion will take a victory lap this weekend with visits to Mexico City and Miami. The Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico native, will arrive in Mexico City tonight and will visit with the Mexican Media on Friday, before appearing in studio on the very popular boxing show "Golpe a Golpe" that three-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez host on ESPNDeportes.
 
Salido will then fly to Miami on Saturday, to appear on Sunday, in "Republica Deportiva" in highest rated sports show in the Univision National Network at the invitation of his fine producer Rick Seara.
 
Salido is coming of his second win over Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez, whom he stopped in the 10th round of the best fight of the year so far. The Mexican warior went back to Puerto Rico last march 10 to give Lopez a rematch of their fight on April of last year, where Salido stopped the Puerto Rican in eight rounds.
 
Last March, Salido got up of the deck in the fifth round and then was part of two incredible non stop action rounds - 8th and 9tth- that will be hard to top this year.
 
"It was a great fight because we both wanted to win so much. I now know that I beat the best Juama Lopez this time, he was strong and smart, but at the end of the day I can take his punch and he can't take mine. I am happy people enjoy the fight and that they will remembered it for a long time", said Salido.
 
Salido will be joined by manager, Sean Gibbons during this victory lap.

He deserves it, he went to PR 2 times and both times got KO victories ... Congrats to Salido!

Happy for the guy. Boxers with records like his nowadays don't really get to enjoy the glory he's receiving lately. I'm sure his paychecks are a lot fatter these days as well. Looking forward to seeing him fight again.
