BoxingScene.com recently spoke to former featherweight champion Orlando "Siri" Salido. The Sonora, Mexico native is just days away from facing Orlando Cruz for the vacant WBO featherweight title. Salido said that he had a great camp and is looking forward to returning to the ring.

"We had a great training camp. I had to really work on my legs in camp. I am not getting any younger and I have been through some difficult fights so I wanted to make sure I was ready. My legs are ready to go and I feel great," Salido explained.

Salido last fought in January when he lost a technical decision to Mikey Garcia. Salido was knocked down four times but was having his best round when the fight was stopped when Garcia's nose was broken by an accidental headbutt. After the fight Salido said that he planned on testing the waters at 130 pounds but said that this opportunity was too good to pass up.

"I wanted to move up to 130 but when this opportunity to fight for another title at 126 came up it was just to good to pass up. If everything goes well we will move up after this fight," Salido said.

The 32-year-old Salido feels like he has unfinished business with Garcia and would like to face him again in the future. Garcia will make his debut in the super featherweight division when he faces Rocky Martinez for his WBO title on November 9th.

"I definitely want a rematch. It has been on my mind. Things like that (headbutts) happen in fights. They are accidents. I would definitely like to face him again at 130 pounds," Salido told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg]He did get picked apart for the first 6 rounds. The 7th and 8th rounds Salido was able to close the gap a little and land some decent punches. Salido has a wealth of experience and finishes fights strong usually. I'm not saying Salido would've won had he fight gone longer but ...

[QUOTE=ddangerous]He just still seemed to be getting surgically picked apart to me, all fight long, until the butt.[/QUOTE] Except this time Salido might get surgically picked apart, all fight long, until Cruz does him up the butt.
