The rematch between WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido and former belt-holder Juan Manuel Lopez could end up in September when they celebrate Independence Day in Mexico. It is expected that in the coming weeks Orlando Pinero, manager of Juanma, will reach some form of an agreement on his part and they will inform the public. Salido stopped Lopez in April to capture the title in a big upset in Puerto Rico.
"We are working on that and the date is uncertain. We are trying to make in Puerto Rico but September is when we celebrate the Independence of Mexico and that could be a very attractive fight for Top Rank to make in Las Vegas. This is a business and there is still no date," said Pedro Hernandez Alvarado, a lawyer for Orlando Piñero.
