Lomachenko vs Salido

Vasyl Lomachenko, the WBO junior lightweight world champion from Ukraine, will stand against Mexican Orlando Salido next spring; thus, he intends to have his revenge for the only defeat in his professional career. Lomachenko said this during an interview with one of Ukrainian TV channels.     

‘My promoters told me the fight is scheduled for March 25, 2017, and my opponent would be Orlando Salido. Too soon to talk about it, but that’s the most likely thing to happen. Salido’s team is open and always ready for a rematch. Nevertheless, I prefer to fight those I’ve never met before,’ the Ukrainian said.

In March 2014, Lomachenko lost to Salido by split decision; boxing magazines mentioned the conduct of the referee, Salido's dirty boxing and weight issues of the Mexican.
