Orlando Salido vs. Orlando Cruz: Preview and Prediction for Title Fight

This Saturday night, veteran Mexican ring warrior Orlando Salido will attempt to become a world champion again as he faces Orlando Cruz for the vacant WBO featherweight belt. The fight will be the featured undercard bout on the Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Timothy Bradley pay-per-view. 

Featherweight has been a weight class in flux during 2013. Three of the four recognized alphabet soup titles traded hands during the year.

Cruz began this year as the WBO champ, but he suffered three knockdowns and lost a Round 8 technical decision to Mikey Garcia last January. Expect him to go all-out to earn back his title against Cruz.
