Salido: I Will Show Why So Many Champions Are Afraid of Me!

By Miguel Rivera

Orlando Salido recently held an open media workout in his native Sonora and from there he promised that this December 9 he will demonstrate exactly why so many world champions have preferred to turn away from him, and assured that his experience will be a key factor against Miguel 'Micky' Roman.

The fight will take place at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Salido (44-13-4, 31 KOs) highlighted the work done with strength and conditioning coach Memo Heredia, which he says will allow him to be even better when he gets in the ring against Roman (57-12, 44 KOs).

"The champions are afraid because I never take a step back. On Saturday December 9, at the Arena of the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, I will offer another Mexican war in the ring against Miguel Roman," said Salido to ESPN Deportes.

"I am the village champion, I go to the ring to put on a show, nobody has given me anything, they know me, I leave everything in the ring, I am a warrior who gives everything, they always see me as the B side and I end up being the A side of the equation. Roman is a warrior too, but my experience will weigh heavy this time."

Also highlighted by Salido, 37, that working alongside Heredia has allowed him to think of a better future and not of retirement, as he revealed that he was not physically at his best when he had a twelve round draw with Francisco Vargas in 2016 - a fight that ended up being the best Fight of The Year.

"I have made one of my best preparations with a complete team with the integration of Memo Heredia, I feel very good, I will definitely go to the ring less dehydrated, more recovered and very strong," said Salido.

In that fight with Roman, the World Boxing Council has sanctioned the contest for the WBC interim-super featherweight title. And if Salido wins then he hopes to finalize the fight with the current champion, Miguel Berchelt, who could not face him in December due to an injured right hand.

He's gonna beat the Thanksgiving stuffing outta Roman and have Loma and the other champs shivering in their bedsheets! No one escapes from the legendary ORLANDO SALIDO unless they're on the backfoot or use a ring doctor to get out!…

[QUOTE=Solitario;18234735]Saldio was satisfied with the offer but according to Arum he was injured during training camp and they wouldn't give him the extra time he needed to get in shape, so they went with Marriaga instead. I haven't followed all…

Salido’s 37 and been through a rough career. He’ll be old any minute now. Don’t be surprised if it happens in this very next fight.
