Orlando Salido Rivera (born November 16, 1980 in Ciudad Obregón, Sonora) is a Mexican professional boxer. Salido is a former WBO Super Featherweight champion, a former WBO Featherweight Champion and a former IBF Featherweight Champion.[1]

Professional career[edit]

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.[2]

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.[3] 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.[4][5]

IBF Featherweight Championship[edit]

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.

WBA Featherweight Championship[edit]

In his next fight, he faced WBA Featherweight Champion Yuriorkis Gamboa and lost a 12 round unanimous decision.

WBO Featherweight Championship[edit]

On April 16, 2011, he faced 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.[6]

Salido vs Garcia[edit]

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.[7]

Salido vs Cruz[edit]

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.[8]

Salido vs Lomachenko[edit]

Salido lost his belt as he failed the weight limit and won a controversial split decision being overweight and delivering inordinate number of low blows.[9][10] The controversial fight issues are outlined in Orlando Salido vs. Vasyl Lomachenko.
