Accompanied by his staff, and 10 weeks of excellent training in the books, Orlando "Siri" Salido will travel on Monday, at 6 am, from his native Obregon to New York City where this coming Saturday night he will risk his featherweight crown of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) against undefeated Mikey Garcia. "Siri" Salido (39-11-2, 27 KO's) vs. Garcia (30-0-0, 26 KOs) will take place at the legendary Madison Square Garden and it will be broadcast on HBO in the United States and by TV Azteca in Mexico.
"We are well prepared, and mentally ready to make our fight and win. We know that we're going against a young, strong, undefeated fighter - but we have our experience and a strong mentality in our favor. We will press Mikey and bring the world championship back to Mexico," confided Salido.
"We have well studied Garcia. We know his strengths and weaknesses and we are prepared to win, round by round, and we are bringing the right strategy to provide a great fight and win."
