WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28KOs) has already started preparing for a March 1 defense against two-time Olympic gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1KO) of Ukraine.

Lomachenko, one of the best amateur fighters of all-time, made his pro debut last month of the Marquez-Bradley undercard and easily dispatched experienced contender Jose Ramirez. On the same card, Salido knocked out Orlando Cruz to recapture the WBO crown.

Salido-Lomachenko will be the HBO televised co-feature to the rematch between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Bryan Vera.

"There is already an agreement, almost everything is ready. During the show in China, Bob Arum and Fernando Beltran and Sean Gibbons discussed [the fight] and reached an agreement. I think [Lomachenko] already realized that being a professional is not the same as being in the amateurs. The dressing [on the hand] is different and he hurt his hand [against Ramirez]. I'm very hungry, I need to win [so I can move up and] get a title at super featherweight. He fought with someone who was smaller than him. I am strong, I have the heart of a lion. Anything can be said, but on that day he will encounter a rock," said Salido.

He may be special down the road but right now I don't see how Salido doesn't eat him alive.

Very rare and interesting fight. There's very little exposure of lomachenko on the pro ranks that it very very difficult for me to predict how this fight will turn out. Salido is a mean mother****er that gets stronger as the fight progresses while lomachenko has never been over 4 rounds. How ...

As I said in previous threads concerning this fight, this isn't just a step up, but a Bob Beamon leap for Loma. I'm impressed with his camp even taking this fight. It will be one hell of a triumph if he can win it.

Jumping off the deep end ah!?!?! Good for him! Step up if you think you're ready.

[QUOTE=richardt]I'd be shocked if Lom wins. He has never been in the deep waters with anyone, let alone Salido who turns it up late in rounds Lom has never seen.[/QUOTE] Exactly, I completely agree.
