"I know that this fight against Roman is difficult and I am confident it will be a war because our styles are very similar and it will be a real train wreck," said Salido who was accompanied by his coach Santos Moreno and his physical trainer, Angel "Memo" Heredia, as well as his agent Sean Gibbons.

"I am very satisfied with my preparation and I feel very good, this is an important fight because winning could lead me to a championship fight and that is the motivation for this fight, because I would like to compete for the World Boxing Council World Championship (WBC) against Miguel Berchelt.

"I'm also very happy with HBO and all the promoters that made this fight possible, because being in the main event of a great show in Las Vegas is something that I'm very proud of and that's why I want to give all the fans a fight that is memorable."
