Lomachenko: Salido is a Step Back, But If The Promoters Agree...

By Vadim Pushkin

WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (8-1, 6 KOs) is not overly interested in a rematch with Orlando Salido (43-13-4, 30 KOs).

Salido is the only fighter to hold a victory over the two-time Olympic gold medal winner.

In his second pro fight, Lomachenko lost a controversial twelve round split decision to Salido in March of 2014.

Since that defeat, Lomachenko has dominated his opposition - with wins over four current or former world champions - Gary Russell Jr., Roman Martinez, Nicholas Walters and Jason Sosa.

Salido on the other hand has been involved in several brutal wars - and he's 0-1-2 in his last three fights - with his last official win taking place in September of 2014.

He's been inactive since June of 2015 - but the Mexican brawler is taking a stay-busy fight on May 27th in Mexico, against Amphon Suriyo.

Lomachenko wants to capture more world titles - either at super featherweight or moving up to purse fights with lightweight champions Mikey Garcia and Terry Flanagan.

In his opinion, facing Salido at this point is a step back - but if the promoters reach an agreement and that's the opponent presented to him, then Lomachenko is ready for action.

"For me as a boxer, Salido is a step backwards. I'm always looking for something new, something interesting and useful for my career. Why waste time just to close up some issues from the past. After the fight between me and him, everything has become very clear [on where we both stand]. But if the promoters agree, I will compete. While I cannot say anything yet about my next fight, I think that it will be held in the late summer," Lomachenko told Gregory Paly.

In his last fight, back in April, Lomachenko dominated and stopped Sosa. Lomachenko praised Sosa for showing heart in the fight, which the boxer from Ukraine believes was lacking from Walters, who quit during their showdown last November.

"There was no surprise about the fight. He is a good boxer, but not top-class.. perhaps Walters in this regard was interesting. Although, as a warrior, Sosa proved to be better here [than Walters], because his corner asked to stop the fight, and he refused. Sosa wanted to continue," Lomachenko said.

[QUOTE=rrayvez;17686093]false, you said salido beat him fair and square. If you deliberately miss weight to gain an advantage, and go low multiple times during a fight, it's not necessarily fair and square. Yes salido got the win but I highly…
