Orlando Salido Rivera (born November 16, 1980) Mexico. He is a former IBF and two-time WBO featherweight champion, as well as a former WBO super featherweight champion.
Salido suffered losses in the early portion of his career. However, he went on a nine fight undefeated streak before losing to WBA and IBF featherweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez by a 12 round unanimous decision. Salido rebounded with knockout wins over former champion César Soto and Rogers Mtagwa
On November 4, 2006, he defeated Robert Guerrero for the IBF World title, by a unanimous decision. The Official scorers saw it 115-113, 118-110, 117-111. Salido's win over Guerrero was marred by controversy, as Salido reportedly tested positive for steroids after the fight.
As a result of his positive test for Nandrolone (an anabolic steroid that may be present naturally in the human body in minute quantities), Salido was stripped of his title and faced disciplinary action in Nevada, which included a suspension. Salido maintained his innocence and immediately had a follow up test at LabCorp, a nationally recognized blood lab. The findings were negative of any steroids.

Salido returned to the ring ten months later with an eighth round unanimous decision victory over journeyman Marty Robbins. In his next fight, he knocked out Hector Julio Avila in an IBF sanctioned title eliminator.
In late 2008 Salido had the opportunity to fight for the IBF belt that he was forced to vacate due to his suspension, against Cristobal Cruz. Salido lost the bout, but later avenged the defeat in a rematch in May 2010, winning the IBF title in the process.
