Ochoa fought last March 15 in San Antonio, Texas, when he beat Mexican Engelberto Valenzuela by a first round KO.

The Cuban Salinas (20-1-2, 13 KOs) will fight for the first time since July 12, 2014, when he lost against Mexican Enrique Quevedo, who beat him by TKO in five rounds. Salinas, a former world title challenger who had a draw against WBA super bantamweight champ Scott Quigg in 2013, will face Mexican Martin Ricardo Alvarado (7-4, 6 KOs) in a  10 round fight at 122 pounds.

In another six round bout, American Ryan Martin (11-0, 6 KOs) takes on Miguel "Mikito" Soto (12-5, 12 KOs) at lightweights.

Two four rounds fights complete the undercard when Jose "Chino" Lopez (3-0, 2 KOs) faces Ray Rivera (1-3-1) in the lightweight division and Roy Mendez (1-0) will take on an opponent to be announce in the junior flyweights.

"The War" also presents the WBO junior lightweight champion Siri Salido (42-12-2, 29 KOs) versus former monarch Rocky Martinez (28-2-2, 17 KOs). Jose "Chelo" Gonzalez (23-1, 18 KOs) will defend his WBO Latino lightweight title against the Mexican Marvin "Cachorro" Quintero (26-5, 22 KOs) to 10 rounds.

Salido is one of the most exciting boxers around at the minute. Some times he gets knocked down several times in fights and is still trying to lawn mower the opponent down. It's a shame HBO could not pick this…

This fight is NOT a PPV type fight. I hope they lose money on it.
