Pro career

As a professional he had 58 fights (47-3-8), from 1985 to 1998. He campaigned at the flyweight and super flyweight divisions, winning world titles in both. After 3 unsuccessful attempts at the world title, Salazar became the IBF World super flyweight champion when he beat Harold Grey in 1995. He would defend the title once before losing it to the same Harold Grey. After that he decided to move down to flyweight and campaign for the WBO World title, winning it against Alberto Jiménez. He defended that title 5 times before losing it to Rubén Sánchez León in controversial fashion as he cited he was hit after the referee had stopped actions and the punch caused him a broken jaw [1]. Salazar decided to retire from boxing after the fight citing medical issues.
