Salido-Lomachenko Eyed For Chavez vs. Vera II Card

By Salvador Rodriguez

The battle between WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28KOs), and Olympic gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1KO), is being targeted for March 1, as part of the HBO televised card featuring the super middleweight rematch between Julio Cesar Chavez and Brian Vera.

Last month in Las Vegas, Salido captured the title vacant title of World Boxing Organization when he knocked out Orlando Cruz. On the same card, Lomachenko made his professional debut with a knockout of Jose Ramirez.

There is talk that Salido's co-promoter, Zanfer Promotions, would like to keep Salido-Lomachenko separated from the Chavez-Vera card. They would rather have the fight on it's own date and attempt to place it in a main event position.

Loma's corner told him to carry the fight the full 10 rounds. Loma says he could've stopped it much earlier, and the stoppage came as a surprise.

Some of you act like Loma looked spectacular in his pro debut, he didn't and Salido will break anyone down who isn't really world class.

Salido is getting folded.

i think Lomachenko wanted the 2nd fight to be for a world title, so its probably something he demanded in his contract, thats why he signed with the Bobfather, so i think its on paper n thats why Bobfather is…

This has potential to back fire hard on bob and loma
