Re: Orlando Salido v Mikey Garcia - Who wins?
One of those bitter sweet fights. I have been saying Mikey will be a top 5 p4p fighter for a while now. Salido though is as tough as they come. He will put pressure on Garcia like no one else has. The question is can his chin hold up to Mikey's punches? In order for Salido to land he will have to get inside on Garcia and open up. Also Salido's defense is not the greatest so Mikey's shots will get in there.
If Salido can handle Mikey's power he could very well pull off an upset. However, he has to get Mikey's respect and Mikey's chin as of now is a question mark. I have never seen him hurt but he also just does not get hit much for us to grade it. If he is hiding a glass chin he is in big trouble as Salido tests chins.
My bet on this fight would be Mikey stops Salido. Mikey is just too clinical and too hard of a puncher for a guy like Salido.
