Salido Feels Good About a Late KO Win on Lomachenko

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28 KO's) feels two-time Olympic gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1 KO) has bitten off more than he can chew. The Ukraine fighter is trying to win a world title in his second pro fight, when he face Salido this coming Saturday at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Lomachenko made his debut last October, knocking out experienced Jose Ramirez.

Salido was not impressed with Lomachenko's debut, because he says Ramirez can't punch and was too small for the weight.

'I believe that it will be a war, because he likes to stand [and trade] a little. He is fast and throws many combinations but I also have my [combination]. I'm going to get in that ring, throw punches and give everything of myself. I believe that this will be a real test for him. Against Ramirez we didn't see too much. Besides [Ramirez] was a fighter without a lot of power and he was too small [for the weight]. I think the longer the fight goes, the more chances I will have. In fact, I believe that if the fight stretches out I can beat him by knockout," Salido said.

+500 for a second pro fight against a guy who's relentless. I'll take a chance and put Salido down...maybe by KO

Good luck to both men. I think Loma is truth but I guess we'll have a better idea after Saturday night :boxing:
