Another one of boxing’s old school warriors and world champions has decided to walk away from the sport this year and hang up the gloves.
Four-time world champion in two different weight categories during his career, Mexican Orlando Salido can walk away from the sport having accomplished a lot.
His TKO defeat last night to Miguel Roman on HBO at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas proved to be the last chapter in an impressive career after he confirmed afterwards that he was finished as an active fighter in the sport.
