WBO World Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido and his camp arrived tonight in San Antonio for his defense of the title Saturday against Russian Vasyl Lomachenko at The Alamodome.

Salido, 40-12-2, 28 KOs, is looking to hold off a challenge from neophyte pro and decorated amateur, Lomachenko, 1-0, 1 KO. “I am gonna introduce him to professional boxing,” said Salido.
