Orlando Salido drops out of fight against Miura

Orlando Salido, stating back issues, will not be fighting on December 17 against Takashi Miura

THE much-anticipated scrap between Orlando Salido (43-13-4, 30 KOs) and Takashi Miura (30-3-2, 23 KOs) is officially off the calendar, according to Golden Boy Promotions President, Eric Gomez.

Salido, the former two-division champion, was reporting back pain at camp and was advised by his medical team to sit out the rest of the year. There is no word as to how long he will remain inactive.

“It’s something with the sciatic nerve,” said Gomez to “He started working out and getting ready for the fight and he had pain. He went to get it checked out and the doctor recommended that he doesn’t fight.”
