Guerrero relinquished the IBF title in June to move up a weight division, whereupon a match was made between Cristobal Cruz and Orlando Salido to find a new champion. Salido had beaten Hector Julio Avila (w rsc 6 at The Stadium, Cicero, Illinois on 14 December 2007) in an eliminator, while Cruz had sprung a surprise when outscoring Thomas Mashaba in his most recent contest.
