Salido vs. Lomachenko: “Boxing 411″ analysis and video presentation

This Saturday night, March 1st, from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, WBO Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28 KOs) will defend his title against two time Olympic Gold Medal winner Vasyl Lomachenko (1-0, 1 KOs). In this very historic bout, the highly decorated and much younger fighter will be competing for a major world title in only his second professional outing against the hard nosed veteran and proven three time world champion.

Radio show host and ring announcer Joseph Herron joins talented, young trainer Rick Morones Jr. in this comprehensive video analysis of “Salido vs. Lomachenko”, as they break down the upcoming Top Rank, Inc. special event:

After dominating and stopping rugged Featherweight contender Jose Ramirez in his pro debut, which took place on the undercard of the Top Rank PPV event, “Marquez vs. Bradley”,  the Ukrainian born technician controversially put himself in line for the highly anticipated showdown with the Mexican born title holder.

Many fight fans and boxing pundits feel that the former Olympian hasn’t accomplished enough as a professional to garner the coveted title opportunity, but very few fighters throughout the history of the sport have achieved as much on the amateur level as Lomachenko.

Throughout his amazing amateur campaign, the talented southpaw technician racked up an unprecedented record of 396-1, against top level and global opposition without any kind of notice or careful selection made by a promotional group or experienced matchmaker.

Most young “blue chip” prospects have the luxury of being carefully pitted against opponents by a manager or promoter upon turning pro.  Vasyl Lomachenko did not enjoy that privilege during his incredible run for Olympic gold, and was forced to adapt and overcome many different style match-ups during this challenging process.

Orlando Salido represents the other end of the boxing spectrum by having to learn on the job over a span of eighteen years as a professional. After beginning his pro career with an 8-7-1 record,  the hard working, aggressive puncher was forced to take fights on short notice, while being featured on other promoters’ cards as a B-side fighter.

With persistence, determination, and discipline, the 33 year old Mexican fighter finally captured Championship gold by defeating Cristobal Cruz in 2010, and officially announced his arrival as a legitimate force in the talent enriched 126 pound weight division.

After two additional title winning efforts against Juan Manuel Lopez and Orlando Cruz, Salido is determined to prove that no amateur background can compare to the hard lessons a fighter can only learn in the professional ring.
Who will prevail on Saturday, March 1st, the eighteen year experienced professional, or the highly decorated amateur technician?

We will find out this weekend at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas!!

Both “Chavez vs. Vera 2” and “Salido vs. Lomachenko” will be televised on “HBO: World Championship Boxing” with a start time of 9:45 PM EST/PST.

The fantastic card is promoted by Top Rank®, in association with Zanfer Promotions, Banner Promotions, Foreman Boys Promotions and Tecate, remaining tickets to Chávez vs. Vera II, priced at $200, $100, $60, $40 and $25 (plus applicable taxes and fees), can be purchased at the Alamodome box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at and via Ticketmaster charge-by-phone lines at (800) 745-3000.
