Two-time world champion Orlando “Siri” Salido who’s working for a political submit in his native state of Sonora, Mexico was arrested in a publicity stunt by his political opponents in hope to discredit him in his get together as a viable change in the political panorama of his state in line with the get together management of Sonora.
“He was singled out as a result of he has a really public persona as a boxing world champion and is one of the most well-known figures in our get together and he’s accused of against the law and was put through a really public course of that was by no means dropped at an finish. He was by no means formally charged with any wrongdoing but it surely was a only a sham to carry disgrace and embarrassment to our get together and our candidate Orlando “Siri” Salido,” mentioned Jaime Moreno Berry of the Workers Party.
“These types of crimes happen in this city, this state and this country all the time and they never get this kind of publicity or even get resolved. This is just a political smear campaign and should be taken as such and should not let anyone turn his back on Salido and his candidacy,” added Moreno Berry.
Salido, who has received world championships at 126 kilos (3 times) and at 130 kilos is hoping to raised the leaving circumstances of his fellow residents.
“I come from this street and I know how hard it is to make it out of these conditions. I was fortunate to have boxing and was able to make it out, but these people need to have means to a better education, health services and that’s what I hope to bring to them if I am elected,” mentioned Salido.
“Unfortunately my good friend Orlando is finding out what real politics are all about. I know he’s trying hard to better his people but as they say,’no good deed goes unpunished.’ I know him to be a good family man who is running for public office because he believes he can do some good for his community, but sometimes there are people out there who will do anything to ruin a good man,” mentioned his Boxing Advisor Sean Gibbons.
