Garcia has opened as the betting favorite against Salido, as most of his opponents has..

I dont know. I think I'll end up betting for Garcia aswell. But if anyone can "upset" the odds, it's Salido.

As a Salido fan, I def see the other side of the coin though, the 'if Salido can make it a war' side, and trust me I really, really hope that comes true, and Salido can pull it off. But I have to be honest and say I dont think he does.
I'm quite surprised Garcia has opened up as favourite!

I think salido is still at the top of his game and I think he's been steadily improving ever since the Marquez fight. I can't see Garcia staying away for 12 rounds. I know gamboa managed it but I think that says more about how good gamboa is then it does about salido's limitations.

Looking forward to it, that's for sure!
