SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - Mexico's Orlando Salido arrived in Puerto Rico this afternoon and immediately started to  train at a local gym. This coming Saturday Salido will defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight title against hometown hero Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Showtime and Showtime Extreme will extreme. Last April Salido stopped Juanma in eight rounds to capture the title.

Salido (37-11-2, 25 KOs) was accompanied by his coach Jose Santos Moreno, and his team, doing floor exercises, several rounds on the heavy bag, hitting the pads, showing speed and a good physique.

"I'm in the best condition, better than the previous fight," said Salido. "We are prepared, I have no pressure whatsoever. I will do my job as always. I know who Juanma Lopez is."
