Salido Says July Defense Planned, Juanma Rematch Later

By Miguel Rivera

Former World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez (30-1, 27 KOs) may have been wishing for the date of August 20 to come through, but it's not very likely to happen. Orlando Salido (35-11-2, 23 KOs), who stopped the 30-year-old Lopez in eight rounds on April 16 in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, says he is still planning to make the first defense of his title on a July date in Sonora, Mexico and then face Juanma in September or later.

"I prepared very well for that fight against Lopez and did what many considered to be an impossible task - winning by knockout to secure the world title. Now people recognize me a lot more. I hope to make the first defense in Sonora, and then I'll give a rematch to Juan Lopez," Salido said.
