Salido is Back, Knocks Cruz Out in Seven For WBO Gold

By Rick Reeno

Thomas & Mack Center, Las Vegas - Orlando Salido (40-12-2, 28KOs) has brought his career back on track with a seventh round knockout of Orlando Cruz (20-3-1, 10KOs) to capture the vacant WBO featherweight title.

Cruz moved well and appeared to be the better boxer, but it was Salido who was landing the harder shots, doing the most damage, and putting together hard combinations to push Cruz back. In the seventh, Salido was blasting away with punches and landed a series of shots to the head and body, which sent Cruz down for the count.

[QUOTE=-KULT-;13834937]I really hope Lomachenko doesn't fight Salido next. To me he's not ready.[/QUOTE] I didn't see him last night; but I watched some of his WSB fights. I also think he's not ready yet...
