Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum, Bayamon, Puerto Rico - Orlando Salido (35-11-2, 23 KOs) pulled off another shocking upset in our sport, by stopping previously undefeated Juan Manuel Lopez (30-1, 27KOs) to capture the WBO featherweight title. [article].

and this was the guy everyone thought was going to destroy Cuban Sensation Yuriorkis Gamboa....

It was an awful stoppage though. Don't get me wrong, I'm almost positive that Salido was about to get JuanMa out of there anyway, but at the point where the ref stopped it Lopez was still attempting to fire back meaningful shots. He wasn't really defenseless at that juncture.

Lopez was still on Lala land when the ref stopped it, he would get seriously hurt if the ref didn't stop it.

There are talks of a rematch in Nov/Dec, it should be good.

Lopez had been hurt for the last 3 rounds....when he back into the cornor and got hit the last time it was only a matter of time...why make him take more punishment than needed?

While Lopez' loss may have caused his stock to drop slightly, I still think a fight between him and Gamboa will be made before year's end or at the very least early 2012. It's a fight fans still want and they've been building it up for way too long.

I would imagine that he (and the boxing public) would want to try to avenge his loss to Salido before anything. If, and that's a very big "IF", he could accomplish that, then I could see a fight with Gamboa (who had to be sick watching his big money fight go down the tubes) materializing. If he loses to Salido again, he's pretty much screwed up his shot at Gamboa. As it stands, no matter what, the potential fight has already lost a lot of it's luster as it would no longer be a match between unbeaten fighters.

If he loses the rematch then Gamboa will have no choice but to fight Salido for the belt, or fight Chris John in Indonesia.
