The thrilling first bout between Orlando Salido and Juan Manuel Lopez will re-air on Showtime Extreme at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Friday. The anticipated rematch airs on Showtime at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on Saturday.

Salido, a huge underdog, won the first bout, which took place on April 16, 2011, by eighth-round TKO. The fight was instantly recognized as a candidate for both Fight of the Year and Upset of the Year. Lopez, who was undefeated (30-0) at the time, protested the stoppage. The proud Puerto Rican is eager to beat the only man to have defeated him in the professional ranks.
