Salido wins title from Lopez. In the fifth round, with less than 20 seconds left, Lopez downed with a left

hook, overhand right combo (up quickly but a bit weary). In the eighth round, Salido was hurting Lopez with

numerous shots, eventually able to stagger Lopez with a short right hook - Salido kept up the pressure,

pinning Lopez against the ropes and after landing a left hook, the ref jumped in and stopped the bout even

though Lopez was still standing, throwing punches back (a bit premature stoppage but Lopez was getting

tagged).
