Orlando Salido Targets Francisco Vargas Rematch

There are very few fighters in the world who deliver the type of fights Orlando “Siri” Salido delivers every time he gets into the ring, and his fight with Francisco “Bandido” Vargas this past June was voted as the best of 2016 by the majority of the boxing media.

When the fight was announced the expectation of a great fight were there, but what actually happen in the ring might have surpassed everyone’s expectation. It was an all-out war from the first bell and it got better from there until the final bell 36 minutes later.

“When you’re in the ring you can tell it’s a great fight and that night I knew we were having a special fight just like the one we promised to deliver. It was an honor to be part of such a great fight and to give the fans to they will cherish for a long time,” said Salido.

The fight would end in a draw and talk of a rematch was immediate by both fighters.

“It was a great fight that did not yield a win for either of us. I think it makes sense to fight again and determined the winner. Obviously I felt that I won the fight, but it was a great fight and believe a second will just as good and hopefully we will get a winner next time,” said Salido.

The fight was so brutal that neither guy has fought since. Vargas is set to return on January 28 to defend his championship and Salido hope that he will next line for Vargas.

“It’s a fight everyone wants to see again, so let’s make happen in 2017. Salido has given us some memorable fights and he earned the rematch in the ring. I guaranteed everyone that it will just as good as the first one,”, said Sean Gibbons, Salido's manager.

Bring the contract to public. That way people will know who the liars are.
