Salido Tests Positive for Steroids
Recently crowned IBF Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido has tested positive for steroids following a post-fight test after his victory over Robert Guerrero.
Salido tested positive for the popular banned steroid, Nandrolone.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission has given Salido 20 days to respond to the finding and he will have a hearing scheduled for a few months from now…
Testing positive will most likely result in Salido being stripped of his title according to IBF Chairman Lindsey Tucker…
“If Nevada sends us something in writing saying he failed the test, we would declare the title vacant at that point and go with the two highest rated guys to fight for the vacant title. That fight would include Guerrero,”
If Salido is found guility after the hearing, the maximum penalties he can receive are a one-year suspension and a fine up to $250,000.
