Orlando Salido: I Knew That I Had To Knock Juanma Out

By Rafael Soto

WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido (38-11-2, 26KOs) knew that a knockout victory was crucial on Saturday night. After going to Puerto Rico last April to stop hometown hero Juan Manuel Lopez (31-2, 28KOs) in eight rounds, Salido repeated his accomplishment with a tenth round stoppage of the Puerto Rican star. Although Salido appeared to be well ahead in the fight, he wasn't surprised with the shocking scorecards - which had Lopez winning a majority decision at the time of the knockout - with scores of 86-84, 86-84 and 85-85.

"The preparation that I did for this fight was key. I knew I had to knock him out. I didn't want to place my trust in the judges and I [knew a knockout was needed]. I thank God for the way things went, and we provided another victory to Mexico and Sonora. I dedicate the fight to all of the fans who believed in me, my friend Alejandro Lopez Caballero for all the support he has given me in my career, and I want to thank my promoter Zanfer, my corner, my family and my friends," Salido said.

(Below is an excerpt from Dan Rafael's recap of the fight. Says it all...) Thankfully, Salido brought his own two judges -- his fists -- to the fight, because as terrible as Lopez's remarks were, the scoring was way worse. It was simply horrendous. Salido, plain and simple, was winning the fig...

I only gave JuanMa two rounds and those were really close. I can't fathom how they could have JuanMa leading on the scorecards. That fight belonged to Salido. I'm glad he got the knock-out. I don't want another Cloud vs. Campillo. And best believe Al Bernstein was protecting his neck after the...
