Salido: Lomachenko's Title Shot Disrespects Everyone

WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28KOs) will be defending his world title against two-time Olympic gold medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1KO) in the month of March.  The Mexican veteran is not happy with the fact that Lomachenko, having only one professional fight, is being pushed to a title shot. Salido feels there are many more fighters who are more deserving, based on their years of working up the rankings ladder.

"[Lomachenko] getting a shot is disrespectful not only to the champion but also for those who are [ranked and] waiting for their title shot. Along comes a boy and in two fights he is challenging for a world championship. It's a lack of respect for everyone. People think that he has the potential to be world champion, but those who know me know I'm a tough fighter and leave everything in the ring," Salido said.

"It is going to be a difficult fight, he has a good record as an amateur, he won a gold medal, but the professional ranks are something different and I will prove it. He is the favorite, but that does not bother me. I know what I have to do in the ring. I have the experience, I have fought great champions and I have everything necessary to win."

[QUOTE=HeroBando]I see, you are seeing this as a competition and a challenge to Rigo. I'm not thinking Rigo, Salido will be enough of a challenge. I disagree Cordoba was tougher, he was stopped by Dunne the previous year and Dunne is Euro class and chinny. Rigo wasn't even with Arum when he ...

[QUOTE=DannYankee09]Cordoba was just as stupid to put a guy with 7 fights in with him as is putting a guy with 1 against Salido. And you dont get that the guy said I will not sign the contract mr Arum unless you put a Donaire fight in there other-wise he would have never gotten the shot at 12 fig...

[QUOTE=HeroBando]He didn't really have to scrape or claw. He got an interim title shot in only his 7th fight on a Pac PPV undercard, looked vulnerable and not TV friendly, and then got a full title shot in his 9th fight vs a green titlist, Haymon client Ramos, who's a LOT less risky than Salido....

[QUOTE=BendOver]My only beef with this shot is the amount of fights or lack of them credited to the kid, he has 7 fights not 1, I think this is good for boxing is opening the door for other standout amateurs...[/QUOTE] I understand, the WSB is damn close to pro. But like I said, top pro prosp...
