Team Orlando Salido: No Fight on 6/2, Returning on 7/21

By Rick Reeno

Sean Gibbons, manager of WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (38-11-2, 26KOs), has advised BoxingScene.com that his boxer is not returning on June 2 - a tentative date being set aside in Ciudad Obregon for the ring return of former champion Antonio Margarito (38-8, 27KOs). 

Per Gibbons, Salido is currently on vacation and plans to make a voluntary defense on July 21, in Ciudad Obregon. After the voluntary date, he wants to return in the fall against the winner of Jhonny Gonzalez-Elio Rojas, which takes place on April 28th.

"He is waiting for the outcome of the Jhonny Gonzalez vs. Rojas fight on April 28. Salido is targeting the winner for a unification in the fall," Gibbons told BoxingScene.com.

Real champions want to UNIFY titles! Thats right Salido!

Comment by Ringlife on 04-09-2012

Salido is right for wanting to wait to see who wins out of Rojas vs Gonzalez. It's better then him fighting a bum on 6/2/12. He has a chance to unify the titles at 126 and be the main champion…
