After 5 weeks of training in Nogales, Sonora - WBO world featherweight champion  Orlando Salido is closing his preparation out with a final three weeks in his native Ciuda Obregon, as he prepares to meet official challenger Mikey Garcia at the historic Madison Square Garden in New York on January 19th. Salido (39-11-2, 27 KOs) vs. Garcia (30-0, 26 KO's) will be televised by HBO and TV Azteca in Mexico.

"We are ready and I'm in great shape. I feel very strong and the weight is no longer a factor, and we have it under control. Now is time to close the preparation in Oregon, with three weeks of hard work and we'll be reducing the intensity. It will be a great fight because 'Mikey' is a very tough fighter, but we are bringing the championship back to Mexico," said Salido.

"Garcia is a fighter on the rise, with great technique and speed, but I'll be ready for anything. I will have to attack and take care of his counter-attacks. My goal is to defend my title and to provide a great fight."

The way I see it, it ends brutally for Garcia by late stoppage. Salido would have to age overnight to lose to Garcia. Salido has fought a whose who of Boxi...

Salido is wild with his punches and gets lucky........but he follows thru......Danny on the other hand can pivot and uses great lateral movement........I see Salido getting knocked out by 8.......I love Salido for his destruction of JuanMa......but JuanMa got cancelled because he is an idiot........

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza]No matter what happens, Mikey will be tested.[/QUOTE] I so agree, now the training wheels will be coming off the bike.
