World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior lightweight champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez will travel tomorrow to Orlando, Florida, where the WBO Convention is held, to participate in the event and also to discuss about a third fight against Orlando “Siri” Salido with the Mexican’s team.

Martinez will travel with Ivan and Peter Rivera, President and Vice-President of PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP), respectively.

“Rocky was invited to the Convention and we will be there with him, but also we got the opportunity to talk with Salido’s group, who will be there too, on the third fight between them,” said Peter Rivera.

Martinez (29-2-3, 17 KOs) and Salido (42-13-3, 29 KOs) fought twice in 2015 with the Puerto Rican winning by unanimous decision in April in Puerto Rico and their second clash ending in a draw in September in Las Vegas. A third brawl is working to be made in the first months of 2016.
