SALIDO: “IM JUST AN OLD FIGHTER”

The career of four-time, two weight world champion Orlando Salido came to a halt on the weekend following his fight of the year candidate loss to Miguel Roman.

“As they say father time is undefeated,” said Salido. “All the wars I had caught up with me tonight. I am leaving the ring knowing that I gave the fans a great a fight that I can give them. I hope they enjoyed it. The mind and heart were there, but my body just was not responding. Roman, is a young fighter who gave his all and I was not able to keep up with him. I’m just an old fighter now.

“I’ve beaten young fighters before, but this time it was a matter of age. Time takes its toll, and obviously, I just couldn’t do it. This was my last fight. Thank you to all, to those who will remember me for all the great fights that I had, and to the people who have followed me.”

I've been in the boxing industry for over 15 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
