Orlando Salido Fired Up, Wants To KO Martinez in Trilogy

By Steve Kim

Sean Gibbons of Zanfer Promotions read with great curiosity (and perhaps a bit of bemusement) the report filed by Miguel Rivera( which quoted promoter Peter Rivera as saying that if Orlando Salido is not willing to come back to Puerto Rico to face WBO 130-pound titlist Roman "Rocky" Martinez in a trilogy bout, that they would be moving forward with their mandatory obligation as part of a Showtime triple-header.

Gibbons reaction?

"All I know is we're ready to go February 20th. We agree to fight (Martinez) February 20th, that's its, plain and simple. Let it all work out," he told on Sunday afternoon.

So are they willing to go back to Puerto Rico like they were last April when they first faced Martinez?

"Salido's training, he's in Obregon (Mexico), he's fired up. He's spending his holiday  not being able to to enjoy himself like he'd like because he's focused on winning the third fight and scoring a knockout this time and he's agreed with Peter Rivera, PR Best, everybody to fight February 20th."

But again, where though?

"Like I said, we're reayd to fight February 20th," answered Gibbons.
