Saludar made his professional debut in late 2009 when he was 20 years old and scored an opening round TKO over fellow debutant Roland Gamolo. In fact Saludar’s first 3 contests ended in the opening round. Saludar’s run of KO’s would end with 3 straight decision wins including a 6 rounder against Ryan Illustrisimo. In his next fight Saludar’s record took it’s first black with a technical draw against Brian Diano after a clash of heads very early in the fight caused the early end.
Since the technical draw Saludar has really started to progress his career. He would win his first title, the WBO Asia Pacific Youth flyweight title 5 months after the Diano fight by defeating Remuel Obidos in just 146 seconds. The win over Obidos showed the impressive power of Saludar who left Obidos out cold in the centre of the ring face first.
Since knocking out Obidos for the WBO Asia Pacific Youth title Saludar has fought twice, defending the title once and then adding the WBO Youth flyweight title when he faced Sor Veerapol in just 84 seconds.
So far the man known as “The Sniper” has shown fantastic potential, he has lightning fast hands, hurtful power in both hands and true 1 punch KO power. Although he lacks experience having just fought 29 rounds as a professional he’s managed to climb up the world rankings and now stands at #2 with the WBO at Flyweight. In his most recent fight, Saludar made quick work of Nelson Llanos when he knocked him out in the first round. Standing at 5’5”, Froilan Saludar could well be the next big boxing star from the fight crazy Philippines following in the footsteps of Nonito Donaire and Manny Pacquiao.
