Orlando Salido Likely To Lose IBF Title, Before The Fight

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised that Orlando Salido will likely get stripped of his IBF featherweight title after reportedly being overweight for Saturday's morning weigh-in. Per the IBF rules, a fighter in the featherweight division can't weigh more than ten pounds over the division limit on the day of the fight. Salido is said to be 138-pounds after making the division limit of 126-pounds on Friday.

As it stands at the moment, the IBF title will only be at stake for WBA champion Yuriorkis Gamboa when the two fighters collide in Saturday's main event at The Palms in Las Vegas. If Salido wins, he will become the WBA champion, but the IBF title becomes vacant.

The rules a bit dumb. Title should be lost in the ring.

As long as Gamboa can still win the IBF belt then that's all that matters.

i mean ultimately it's not that big of a deal... the IBF is the ****tiest of the four sanctioning body belts anyway... nobody cares about belts in general these days, really... if you beat gamboa YOU ARE THE MAN at…
