López Salido rematch in August?


Recommended Posts

By Rey Colón -The Sport Press


A contractually obligated rematch between WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido and ex-champ Juan Manuel Lopez may be held in August instead of November or December as originally stated by promoter Bob Arum. Salido, who stopped Lopez on Saturday night in a monumental upset, had hoped to make a defense in July in Sonora, Mexico, but apparently the people of Lopez are pushing for a rematch to take place as soon as possible.

I hate to see them pushing for the Rematch so soon, if only because that indicates to me that they think it a "fluke" and aren't going to attempt to address any of the flaws in Juanma that helped lead to the defeat (IMO).


Also, Arum has a smaller window of opportunity to work with so he thinks to rush the rematch and put his money match on.

Thing is, he already ruined it. Collateral Damage, too late

It would have been great to hear Buffer say, "Somebodies "O" has got to go"!
