Orlando Salido May Return on 7/21, Eyes Jhonny Gonzalez

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (38-11-2, 26 KOs) is looking at a possible return on July 21st, and WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez is the fight he wants most. He's waiting for the outcome of the April 28th clash between Gonzalez (51-7, 45KOs) and mandatory challenger Elio Rojas.

"I believe that good fight are coming my way. We want to unify this year. I want to unify one or two titles and then move up to 130-pounds. Jhonny was the better fighter last year, and I know that talks have already begun and I think it's a matter of time before I get that fight," Salido said.

Sean Gibbons, the agent of Salido, said - "We want the fight with Johnny, we love it. If we can win that fight, then we could look at Adrien Broner, Gary Russell, Celestino Caballero - there is a good range of opportunities."
