Salgado Survives Argenis Mendez, Wins The IBF Title

By Miguel Rivera

Coliseo Olimpico, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico - In a fierce battle, Juan Carlos Salgado (24-1-1, 16KOs) captured the vacant IBF super featherweight title with a close twelve round unanimous decision over Argenis Mendez (18-2, 9KOs). The scores were 115-111, 114-112 and 114-112. The bout was fought at a fast pace with both boxers landing good shots and combinations. In the fifth round, Mendez lost a point for illegal shots to the back of the head. In the twelfth and final round, Mendez dropped Salgado with hard counter during an exchange. Salgado was hurt and had to stay on his feet until the final bell as Mendez was coming close to securing a knockout.

In a back and forth fight, Katya "Katy" Gutierrez (15-3, 3KOs) made her second successful defense of his IBF world strawweight title by winning a unanimous decision over Colombia's Olga Julio. The scores were 100-90, 100-90 and 98-92.

In a true demonstration of power, Jalisco's Ricardo "Dinamita" Alvarez (10-1-2, 4KOs) let his hands go and had no problems with overwhelming Juan Carlos "La Sombra" Pacheco in the third round of a welterweight contest. Pacheco was dropped in the third round and got to his feet. Alvarez attacked with a combination of hard punches to force the intervention of the referee.

[QUOTE=illpapi;11117678]What I am saying is that with his boxing skills he should not fight an inside fight. That style is for brawlers not boxers like himself. I just don't get it. Maybe they thought that since they were in Mexico…
