Photos: Scott Quigg, Yoandris Salinas Face To Face

By Elisinio Castillo

Cuba's Yoandris Salinas is ready for the big stage on Saturday night and says he will not be intimidated by the capacity crowd at the O2 Arena in London, England - when he faces popular fighter Scott Quigg for the vacant super bantamweight championship of the World Boxing Association (WBA). Salinas (20-0-1, 13 KOs) vs. Quigg (26-0-1, 19 KOs) will feature a battle of unbeatens. Quigg is seen as a rising star, but he never faced anyone like Salinas - a veteran of more than 300 amateur fights, with a 301-16 record, including four Gold Gloves in Cuba, a bronze medal at the Pan American Games and gold medal at the World Cup.
