Salido Open To Adrien Broner Showdown Down The Line

By Ryan Burton

WBO featherweight champion Orlando "Siri" Salido (39-11-2) is at the pinnacle of his career. Salido has been a professional prize fighter for over 16 years and has over 50 fights under his belt. Despite the wear and tear, Salido feels that he can keep fighting at this level for a few more years.

"I feel good. I think I am in the best part of my career. I have experience and I feel strong. I think I can fight at this level for another three to four years,"  Salido told us on The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene's official audio show.

Salido most likely will face top contender Mikey Garcia in October or November. The 31 year-old fighter realizes there are many options out there for him in both the featherweight and super featherweight divisions. 

"One option is we can wait for the fighters at 122 to move up. Guys like (Nonito) Donaire. That's a fight we want. We also could move up to 130. We wanted (Adrien) Broner but he moved up to 135," Salido explained.

The Mexican fighter wouldn't rule out a future fight against Broner, hinting that he might eventually make the move up to lightweight.

"Eventually I could go to 135. I want to move to super featherweight first though. We need to move up little by little. We fought at 135 before and did well there," Salido revealed.

[QUOTE=Allucard;12417355]Besides if Broner is a racist[/QUOTE]I'ts not a question of IF, he IS a racist. Not arguable, not remotely up for debate. It's a free country so go ahead and continue supporting a racist, I will not.

Why not Salido/Uchiyama stylewise it would be a fantastic fight after all he's the best guy at 130 or even Salgado would be good

[QUOTE=Frank Ducketts;12417392]AL, don't worry about the cry babies. They have their mind made up. They can't attack Broner personally so they subliminally attack his fans through premeditated posts just to get a rise out of them.[/QUOTE] Adrian Broner @AdrienBroner I…
