Salido vs Roman Post-Fight with the Flores Bros – As expected, fireworks ensued when Orlando Salido met Miguel Roman last Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay and on HBO.
Salido, who is almost always in a “Fight of the Year” candidate, came out fast against the smaller Roman, who had to weather the storm in the early going. Roman battled back and his work started to get to Salido. In the end, the 37 year old Salido may have been caught by father time and by the wear and tear of so many wars as Roman had Salido down in rounds four, eight and nine. Salido would not see the end of that ninth round and the fight is likely the final one in his storied career. As for Roman, the 32 year old has 58 wins in 70 fights and he now has a case for a world title shot come 2018.
