Orlando Salido
By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. According to reports, now verified in the media, Orlando Salido vs. Miguel Angel "Mikey" Garcia that was to be held on November 10 at the Wynn, Las Vegas in the main event of an HBO "Boxing After Dark" telecast, is being postponed.

According to reports, Salido broke his finger after accidentally slamming it in a car door. This happened on Friday.

Sean Gibbons, Salido's boxing manager was quoted by Espn on the freak accident and stated that Salido will probably be ready to fight again in January.

Regarding the freak accident that led to a broken finger, Gibbons who was miffed that it wasn't even a boxing related injury, stated. "It's just bad luck. One of his guys shut the door on his hand by accident. Just a freak accident.

As it stands the show will go on, HBO will not be cancelling the card.  According to reports, a suitable  substitute for Garcia is being sought.

Doghouse Boxing will provide its readers with more information as it becomes available. For more on Orlando Salido's injury, visit the homepage news wire here at Doghouse Boxing.
