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!

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…
