Review: 2012-07-28, pretty good fight between Orlando Salido and Moises Gutierrez but the difference in experience and skill between the two is too large: two stars. Orlando Salido ranked as the No.1 featherweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 38-11-2 while Moises Gutierrez had a record of 21-4-0. Salido vs Gutierrez is the main event of the evening. Watch the video!
Review: 2012-03-10, after two tactical rounds, the war begins…one knockdown in the fifth period and three astonishing rounds: the 8th, 9th and 10th; Juanma Lopez vs Orlando Salido 2 could be a candidate for Fight of the Year 2012, five stars! Orlando Salido (37-11-2) entered as the No.1 featherweight in the world while Juan Manuel Lopez (31-1-0) entered as the No.3. Salido vs Lopez 2 is valid for the WBO featherweight title (Salido’s second defense); in their first fight Salido defeated Lopez by TKO (one of the best boxing fights of 2011). Watch the video!
Review: 2011-12-17, good fight with 3 knockdowns (both fighters went down!), one of the best fights of the weekend: three stars (fight ended by KO in the eighth round). Orlando Salido, ranked as the No.2 featherweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 36-11-2 while Weng Haya had a record of 14-4-0. Salido comes from victory over Juanma Lopez (one of the best boxing fights of 2011). Watch the video!
Review: 2010-09-11, Yuriorkis Gamboa (18-0-0) had won the WBA World featherweight title in 2009 and he had already defended his belt three times, instead Orlando Salido (34-10-2) was the reigning champion of the IBF featherweight title. In the eighth round Gamboa went down but in the last round the Cuban boxer knocked down Salido two times defeating the Mexican by unanimous decision (in the 12th round Joe Cortez deducted 2 points to Gamboa for hitting Salido while he was down). The fight Gamboa vs Salido was tough but also technical, with a high pace: one of the best boxing fights of 2010. Watch the video!
Review: 2011-04-16, very exciting fight with both fighters went to the canvas and four breathtaking rounds (from fifth to eighth period): Orlando Salido vs Juan Manuel Lopez is definitely one of the greatest boxing fights of 2011, four stars. The undefeated “Juanma” Lopez entered the fight with a record of 30-0-0 while Orlando Salido had a record of 34-11-2. Lopez vs Salido is valid for the WBO featherweight title (Lopez’s third defense).
