- Salido a heavy underdog came strong and pressed the action during the entire fight against Francisco Vargas, a younger and bigger fighter who just came from a war against the tough Takashi Miura, a fight that what was selected as the fight of the year in 2014. Both fighters went toe to toe for pretty most of the fight but none of them went to the canvas, extremely close fight with some of the observers feeling that Salido deserved the decision.
