Rick Reeno of BoxingScene.com reports that Orlando Salido is likely to be stripped of his IBF featherweight title before tonight's fight with Yuriorkis Gamboa. IBF rules dictate that featherweights can't weigh more than 136 pounds on the morning of the fight, and Salido came in at 138.
The IBF title will still be on the line for Gamboa to win, and Gamboa's WBA title will still be on the line for both. Should Salido win, the IBF title will be vacant.
The bout will be broadcast on HBO Boxing After Dark tonight at 10pm EDT. Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage, scoring and analysis of the event, which includes a lightweight co-feature between Anthony Peterson and Brandon Rios.
