Orlando Salido vs. Vasyl Lomachenko: Preview and Prediction for Title Fight
Julie Jacobson/Associated Press

Orlando Salido will make the first defense of his newly won WBO Featherweight Championship on Saturday night when he takes on former amateur standout Vasyl Lomachenko at the Alamodome in San Antonio. 

Salido, a three-time world champion from Mexico, is one of the most deceptive fighters in all of boxing. His record isn't pretty, but he's tough, rugged and will not cede his title without putting up a fight.

Lomachenko, quite possibly the greatest amateur fighter ever, will be competing in just his second professional fight, but he's already being groomed for superstardom. Despite his inexperience in the pro ranks, he's the favorite to walk out of the Alamodome with the belt around his waist.

Here we break down the fight and the fighters for you. 

This is your complete preview and prediction for Salido vs. Lomachenko for the WBO Featherweight Championship.
