Salido-Lomachenko: San Antonio Open Workout Quotes

SAN ANTONIO, TX -- Fight Week in San Antonio for the eagerly- anticipated boxing doubleheader featuring the historic challenge by two-time Ukrainian Olympic gold medalist and 2013 Prospect of the Year, VASYL LOMACHENKO, in only his second professional fight, of World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight champion ORLANDO SALIDO continued its hot path in earnest today as both participated in Media Workouts.  In front of a packed Zarzamora Street Boxing Gym, the fighters trained for over three hours as they fine-tuned for their upcoming encore battle.  The world championship event will be headlined by the rematch between former World Boxing Council (WBC) middleweight champion and Son of the Legend JULIO CÉSAR CHÁVEZ JR. and Top-Five contender and two-fisted Texan BRYAN VERA.

Both fights will take place This Saturday!  March 1, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX and will be televised live on HBO World Championship Boxing, beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT.

SALIDO

"I have being an underdog all my professional career and this fight is no different. I come to fight and do the best I can and I don't pick my opponents and never have.
I know why Lomachenko is getting this opportunity. He was one of the best amateur boxers and has two gold medals. I came up the hard way and I worked hard for everything I have."

When asked if Lomachenko was ready for an experienced fighter like him:
"I guess we will find out on Saturday night. He does have skills. He has fast hands, moves well in the ring, but we will see in the ring if he can take my pressure and constant work rate that I will dish out to him."

LOMACHEKNO

"I am not nervous at all. I am the one who chose this path to a world title fight.
All of this was my decision.  Salido has fought the best of the best. He will be a hard fighter to defeat. I like fighters like him with the tough Mexican style. It makes it so much more challenging.  Salido is a great champion because he  is calm, never talks trash, is cold-blooded and has beaten the best. This is a real fight, a battle."

[QUOTE=King-;14274185] Lomachenko himself said you could not fully close your fists in WSB gloves, it'll show here IMO and the workrate, speed, timing and accuracy combined with proper pro gloves will be too much for Salido and I see him…

Really, Salido? You came up the hard way? And winning two olympic gold medals is the easy way, right?

Chin Check ,we'll see over 300 amateur fights and one pro fight if we do the math 175 of those fights were country men and we don't know if many of those fights were close. Looking at his style he…
