Super featherweight Juan Carlos Salgado is forced to give his best effort in each one of his sparring sessions. The boxer, who was born west of Mexico City, has stepped on the gas in his preparation for the upcoming commitment on September 10, against Dominican boxer Argenis Mendez. They will clash for the vacant super featherweight championship of the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

Salgado, a former World Boxing Association (WBA) champion at 130 pounds (58,976 kilograms), is training "full steam" at the Romanza Gym (east of Mexico City), under the supervision of Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain, who makes sure the boxer follows each of his instructions to a letter.

Juan Carlos, with 23 wins, 16 of these by knockout, in exchange for a sole defeat, hopes to take Mendez out.

"It's an opportunity I can not miss. My wish is to return to [being a champion] and I think we'll prevail," Salgado said.

In October 2009, Salgado shocked the boxing world when he knocked out Venezuelan Jorge "Golden Boy" Linares in one round to win the crown at 130 pounds.
