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."
