Salido: Forget The Judges, I Will Knock Juanma Out Again

By Salvador Rodriguez

Nothing worries Orlando Salido (37-11-2, 25KOs). The WBO featherweight champion arrived to Puerto Rico on Tuesday in a confident mood, and he showed no fear when going face to face with hometown hero Juan Manuel Lopez (31-1, 28KOs) at the post-fight press conference on Wednesday. Last April, Salido scored one of the biggest upsets of the year when he stopped an unbeaten Juanma in eight rounds to capture the title.

“Since the day we took the fight, we knew that it would happen in Puerto Rico. We already knew what we were up against. The judges and the referee, as was the case in the first fight - it won't matter. The result here will be the same, because I'm going to finish him early. He already knows that I can hurt him. He can't deny that fact and the end result will be the same," Salido said.

Salido says the fans of Puerto Rico have welcomed him with open arms.

“They received me very well. The people are taking pictures with me. They have really treated me very well. I've come here in top physical form and I'll return back home with the belt," Salido said.

[QUOTE=jsfd26;11865315]Typical Top Rank move favoring certain fighters. Why couldn't this fight be taken to a part of the states where the majority of the population is mexican since Salido is the champ and took the belt fair and square in…

What everyone fails to mention is that regardless of if he is an overrated fighter or just had a bad night, Juanma without a doubt is the most exciting fighter in boxing today. I can’t remember any of his fights…
