Roman Martinez will have another chance to once again defeat Orlando Salido. This time it will be with a larger audience. The fight will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the Mayweather-Berto undercard. Their first fight provided fireworks in a boxing war that not many people had the chance to see. Martinez is vowing another war and this is what he had to say about the rematch:
"I'm so happy to be part of this great show. I'm preparing very well for this fight. Everybody who saw the first fight knows this was a war and this will be the same thing. I'm in great shape and I'm ready to keep my belt.
"I need to work to the body more in this fight and see if I can finish him early this time.
"I'm in really good shape for this fight and I've been working to make adjustments to get the knock out but if we have to go the distance, we'll be ready.
"I feel the rematch is a very exciting fight for television, the kind fans love.
"Everybody who saw the first fight knows it was a war and this will be the same thing. For me, it gives me a chance to leave no doubt in anybody's mind that I am the champion.
"Salido can say what he says, I hope he's in good condition because I am. In the end the best man will win this fight and that will be me."
