By Osman Rodriguez

WBO featherweight world champion Orlando Salido (38-11-2, 26KOs) is looking to return in August. The boxer was very pleased to read a recent report on BoxingScene.com, where WBC champion Jhonny Gonzalez expressed his intention of pursuing a unification with Salido. Gonzalez (51-7, 45KOs) defends his belt against Elio Rojas on Apruil 28th in Mexico.

"I wish him luck in his April defense against Elio Rojas and I would love to fight him in a unification bout for the WBC and WBO belts. The fight would be an all-out war and I welcome the fight," Salido said.

Also, Salido doesn't rule out the possibilty of moving up in weight to face WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner (23-0, 19KOs).

"Well right now I am comfortable at 126-pounds but if the right opportunity presented itself, I would welcome the challenge of fighting for the WBO 130-pound title. Broner is a good fighter but he has never faced a champion and Mexican fighter like myself. I would take his hair brush and brush a [location] on the canvas were I would put him," Salido said.

"I also would like to thank Showtime again for [televising] my memorable fights with Juanma Lopez and I look forward to fighting on Showtime again."

Broner landed all the good shots late. Don't see how people have Ponce won. He won some early rds that were CLOSE. So wwhat.

I too had Ponce over Broner in a competitive fight but as the clear winner But nonetheless, Salido would be better served staying away from Broner. It would play out similar to Siri's fight with Gamboa except with a likely TKO in the mix

[QUOTE=newcastleking]No featherweight can beat Broner? We all seen DeLeon sock him up good and get JIPPED! **** a robbed W or L. We FANS know the truth.[/QUOTE] And I dont think Ponce ever fought above featherweight and was the shorter man as well.

Salido is one of my new favorites, I hope he makes great success from this point onward!

close fight by balls, Broner won like 3 rounds.
