They shattered Jesus Chavez and Carlos Hernandez previous record of 1475 combined power thrown by 118 punches.

LOS ANGELES - Vargas (23-0-2, 17 KOs) retained his title against Salido (42-13-4, 30 KOs, 1 NC) after going the distance in a 12-round blood bath before a nearly sold-out, raucous crowd of 7,378 at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. and televised live on HBO® Boxing AfterDark.

Salido and Vargas exchanged heavy blows in the first round, with Salido getting the better of Vargas in a flurry of punches late in the round. Round four saw Vargas injured, with blood pouring from a cut on his eye obtained by a head butt. The war continued on and brought the crowd to their feet in round six, where Vargas held Salido against the ropes several times with a flurry of punches. The warriors didn't stop and kept the pressure on each other until round 12, which saw Vargas and Salido laying into one another relentlessly until the bell.
 
Before the man event began, attendees were encouraged to light up their cell phones across the audience and to chants from the crowd of "Ali." Ring announcer Michael Buffer told the assembled crowd the story of Ali and described his life as a boxer and activist, and his impact in the world beyond just sports. He followed with what has become standard for fallen boxers - ten bells rung to give the final count-out to the legend.

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;16767454]It was pretty freaking good. Lots of inside skill, especially from Salido.[/QUOTE] That might be fun. Both guys testing each other's chins?...I might like it. Of course, I'd still have to watch it to confirm.

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;16767446]No skill whatsoever, don't waste your time. I suggest you watch a true classic like Rigondeaux vs Agbeko or the timeless classic Pacquiao vs Mayweather for some true awe inspiring skill and edge of your seat excitement.[/QUOTE] That sux. I…
