Salido-Garcia, Lara-Vanes HBO Vegas Double Looks Set

By Keith Idec

Sources have confirmed to BoxingScene.com that Orlando Salido will defend his WBO featherweight title against Mikey Garcia in an HBO doubleheader Nov. 10 in Las Vegas.

The 12-round Salido-Garcia fight will headline a “Boxing After Dark” doubleheader from Wynn Las Vegas & Encore Hotel.

Garcia (28-0, 24 KOs), of Oxnard, Calif., is the mandatory challenger for the Mexican champion’s WBO 126-pound crown. Salido (39-11-2, 27 KOs, 1 NC) made his most recent defense against Chile’s Moises Gutierrez (21-5, 8 KOs), whom Salido stopped in the third round July 28 in Tepic, Mexico.

The co-featured fight Nov. 10 will pit Vanes Martirosyan (32-0, 20 KOs), of Glendale, Calif., against Cuban-born southpaw Erislandy Lara (17-1-1, 11 KOs) in a 12-round, 154-pound WBC elimination match.

The winner will move closer to earning a shot at Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s WBC super welterweight title. Lara is ranked No. 2 by the WBC, one spot ahead of Martirosyan, and one spot behind No. 1 challenger Miguel Cotto (37-3, 30 KOs).

Top Rank Inc., which won a purse bid to promote the Lara-Martirosyan match and represents Garcia, is expected to make an official announcement regarding the doubleheader sometime next week.

Can't wait for this card. Yet another great card to end the year. I'm rooting for my man Salido, one of my favourite active fighters. It's going to be a tough fight though. One thing you can always guarantee, Salido…

Absolutely no way Mikey beats Siri, Mikey is used to crushing tomato cans and Salido is peaking IMO.
