Salido hails from Mexico and is an orthodox boxer. He stands at 5 feet 7 inches tall with a reach of 68 inches. Salido has been fighting as a pro since 1996 and after a rather lackluster start he began to become a dominant boxer in 2002 and finally became a champion when he won the IBF featherweight title in 2006 in a no contest against Roberto Guerrero and successfully won the 4 fights that followed before losing the IBF featherweight title to Cristobal Cruz in 2008. He regained the title over Cruz in 2010 with a split decision win and later would add a WBA super featherweight title to his resume. Salido is coming off a technical knockout win over Moises Gutierrez on July 28, 2012
