Salido Breaks From Sanchez, Big Bear - Heads To Mexico, Memo

By Miguel Rivera

Last week, reported that former world champion Orlando 'Siri' Salido had arrived in Big Bear for a test run with Mexican trainer Abel Sanchez, as the veteran fighter prepares for his next fight against an opponent yet to be defined, according to manager Sean Gibbons.

It had been said that Salido was going to face Puerto Rican fighter Jonathan Oquendo on November 25 as part of the undercard of Sergey Kovalev and Vyacheslav Shabransky from New York's Madison Square Garden Theater - but those plans may change.

According to Gibbons, Salido was simply not convinced with the conditions in the Californian mountains and for that reason he is leaving to work with physical trainer Memo Heredia in Mexico, and probably with trainer Santos Moreno with whom Salido has been working with.


Gibbons indicates to ESPN Deportes that instead of November 25 in New York, Salido may return on an HBO date of December 16. They hope to close something soon in order to get Salido's career back on track.

He needs to win his next fight to secure the opportunity to go for the World Boxing Council super featherweight title, currently owned by Miguel 'Alacrán' Berchelt. Both Salido and Berchelt have a working relationship with Zanfer Promotions.

Salido, 36, is 44-13-4 and 31 KOs. He was the featherweight and super featherweight world champion and has been involved in several Fight of The Year contenders, including the 2016 FOTY winner when he fought a twelve round war with Francisco Vargas for the 130-pound green and gold belt.

Berchelt has been one of the breakout stars of 2017. He started off the year with a stoppage win over Vargas for the WBC title, and then followed things up with a dominating victory over Takashi Miura. Berchelt planned to have a third fight to close out the year, but suffered an injury which pushed back his return to early 2018.
