3 Keys to Victory for Orlando “Siri” Salido

Saturday night, former three-time world champion Orlando “Siri” Salido (43-13-3, 30 KOs) will be challenging the WBC super featherweight champion Francisco “El Bandido” Vargas (23-0-1, 17 KOs).

This fight is a must see event and on paper, is almost a guaranteed Fight of the Year candidate. While Vargas is coming off a spectacular FOTY victory over Takashi Miura, Salido is coming off two tough fights against Roman Martinez.

This is a much-anticipated fight against two heavy-hitting Mexican warriors. While Vargas is undefeated, Salido is a hard fighter to prepare for because he simply does not quit.

Saturday night we are all in for a treat. The Stub Hub Center has been home of some of the most epic fights of the era and I am expecting nothing less from Orlando Salido vs. Francisco Vargas.

Here are three keys to victory for the veteran Orlando Salido over undefeated Francisco Vargas.
