Diego De La Hoya Breaks Down, Stops Jose Salgado

Diego De La Hoya (21-0, 10 KOs), the quick-handed super bantamweight contender of Mexicali, Mexico, successfully defended his NABF and NABO Super Bantamweight Titles against Jose "Sugar" Salgado (35-5-2, 28 KOs) of Cozumel, Mexico via technical knockout at the end of the seventh round of the scheduled 10-round main event of the June 8 edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, N.Y. De La Hoya's relentless and fast-paced aggression were too much for Salgado to handle, which forced his corner to call a halt to the bout at the end of the aforementioned round.
 
"We knew that he [Salgado] had been training since October of last year," said Diego De La Hoya."Obviously that's because the fight was delayed, but the fight took place tonight and thank God it was great. I brawled so that people would see that I am indeed a Mexican fighter. He has a lot of experience and a lot of power, but I still brawled to give a great show. I'll need to talk to my team about what's next, but hopefully something very good."
 
"I felt really tight in this fight, but that's because the inactivity really affected me," said Jose Salgado. "I take no credit away from Diego De La Hoya, and I fought a good fight despite the inactivity. He's a great fighter, and he'll be a future world champion."

Only thing exciting about him is his name. There are other men more talented we never talk about.

Diego seems to be a decent fighter but I don't see anything special and every time I see him fight it's against someone very limited. I think one of the problems is that almost his entire career has been televised.…

Very disappointed in the rat (I mean Disney/Mickey-ESPN). Instead of streaming I waited for ESPN 2 at 9:30 pm then nothing but post game NBA! El senior (dad) went to bed. Tio (uncle) said take me home at 10:30 and…
