Orlando Salido Rivera (born November 16, 1980) is a Mexican professional boxer. He is a former two-weight world champion, having held the IBF featherweight title in 2010; the WBO featherweight title twice, from 2011 to 2014; and the WBO junior lightweight title from 2014 to 2015.
Salido suffered losses in the early portion of his career. However, he went on a nine fight undefeated streak before losing to WBA and IBF featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez by a 12-round unanimous decision. Salido rebounded with knockout wins over former champion César Soto and Rogers Mtagwa.
On November 4, 2006, he defeated Robert Guerrero for the IBF world title, by a unanimous decision. The Official scorers saw it 115-113, 118-110, 117-111. Salido's win over Guerrero was marred by controversy, as Salido reportedly tested positive for steroids after the fight.
As a result of his positive test for Nandrolone (an anabolic steroid that may be present naturally in the human body in minute quantities), Salido was stripped of his title and faced disciplinary action in Nevada, which included a suspension. Salido maintained his innocence and immediately had a follow up test at LabCorp, a nationally recognized blood lab. The findings were negative of any steroids.
Salido returned to the ring ten months later with an eighth round unanimous decision victory over journeyman Marty Robbins. In his next fight, he knocked out Hector Julio Avila in an IBF sanctioned title eliminator.
In late 2008 Salido had the opportunity to fight for the IBF belt that he was forced to vacate due to his suspension, against Cristobal Cruz. Salido lost the bout, but later avenged the defeat in a rematch in May 2010, winning the IBF title in the process.
In his next fight on September 11, 2010, he faced WBA Featherweight Champion Yuriorkis Gamboa and lost a 12-round unanimous decision.
On April 16, 2011, he fought undefeated WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel López in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. As a heavy underdog, Salido stopped Lopez by 8th-round TKO to claim the WBO featherweight title.
Salido vs Garcia
The WBO Featherweight champion and Ring No. 1 ranked Featherweight, Salido took on Miguel Garcia on January 19, 2013. Garcia dominated the bout from the very beginning, keeping Salido at range with the jab. Garcia knocked Salido down four times early on in the fight, building up a large lead on the scorecards. During the 8th round, Salido accidentally clashed heads with Garcia, causing Garcia's nose to break. The fight was stopped between rounds, with the decision going to the scorecards. Garcia won a wide unanimous decision, to win his first world title.
Salido vs Cruz
Miguel Garcia was stripped of his WBO Featherweight title for failing to make weight in a title defence against Juan Manuel Lopez in June, 2013. Salido was matched up against Puerto Rican boxer Orlando Cruz for the vacant title. The fight took place on October 12, 2013 on the undercard of the Bradley-Marquez pay-per-view promotion. Salido stopped Cruz in the seventh round to regain the WBO Featherweight title.
Salido vs Lomachenko
Salido lost his belt as he failed the weight limit and won a split decision successfully taking Lomachenko's undefeated record. The controversial fight issues are outlined in Orlando Salido vs. Vasyl Lomachenko.
After failing to make weight in his last fight, Salido decided to move up to the super featherweight division. In his first fight at his new weight, he fought Thailand boxer Terdsak Kokietgym for the WBO Interim super featherweight title. In a fight which saw Salido dropped three times to the canvas and Kokietgym dropped four times. The stopped the bout after Kokietgym was knocked down in round 11, the count was eventually waived giving Salido the win and claiming the vacant interim title.
Salido vs. Martinez I & II
On April 2015, Salido lost a 12-round unanimous decision to Roman Martinez, also losing his title in the process. Prior to this fight, Salido was undefeated against Puerto Rican boxers. Salido was knocked down twice in the fight in rounds 3 and 5 and also docked a point for low blow in round 11 as Martinez won all three judges scorecards, who had it at 14-111, 115-110 and 116-109.
A rematch was announced and took place on the undercard of Mayweather-Berto at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the first time either fight had fought there. After a tough 12 rounds, which many believe was Salido's night, the judges scored the bout 115-113, 113-115 & 114-114, a split decision draw. Salido threw 1037 punches landing at a 27% connect rate whereas Martinez threw 691 but landed the same connect rate. Salido appeared upset in the post fight interview, re-iterating the fact that he thought he had done enough to win the fight based on his dedication to win.
Salido vs. Vargas
It was announced in March 2016, Salido would attempt to capture the WBC super featherweight title on June 4 at the StubHub Center in Carson, California against Francisco Vargas (23-0-1, 17 KOs). A rematch clause was attached to the contract had Salido defeated Vargas. In what was described as a clear fight of the year candidate, Salido and Vargas fought to a 12-round majority draw. Two judges had it 114-114 whilst the third had it 115-113 for Vargas, who as a result retained his WBC title. Both fighters thought they had done enough to take the decision. The fight was shown on HBO’s Boxing After Dark which averaged 833,000 viewers hitting a peak of 954,000 viewers.
After failing to claim two world title in his last two fights due to them ending in a draw, it was confirmed Salido would fight again on December 17 against Japanese boxer Takashi Miura (30-3-2, 23 KOs) for the WBC Interim super featherweight title. Miura lost the WBC title in November 2015, the same title Salido fought Vargas to a majority draw in June. Golden Boy Promotions announced the fight will take place at The Forum in Inglewood, California with the fight set to be the main event of an HBO Boxing After Dark card. The fight was supposed to a co-feature Bernard Hopkins final career fight against Joe Smith Jr. however Salido pulled out of the fight after injuring his lower spine in training.
