Salgado defeats Barros
By Rob Smith: IBF super featherweight champion Juan Carlos Salgado (26-1-1, 16 KO’s) successfully defended his title for the third time against #14 IBF Jonathan Victor Barros (34-3-1, 18 KO’s), winning by a 12 round unanimous decision on Saturday night at the Miguel Hildago Gym, in Pueblo, Mexico. The final judges’ scores were 116-111, 116-111, and 116-111.
Salgado dominated the action with his flurries as he punished the one punch at a time throwing Barros. It seemed that Barros was mainly looking for a knockout, because he rarely put his punches together in any real way in this fight. He did a lot loading up with his shots, and his lack of hand speed really hurt him.
Salgado typically would jab during stretches of each round, but then would really flurry on Barros when he would catch him near the ropes. Every round saw this pattern repeated without interruption.
Salgado looked far from great, and it would have been interesting to see what former WBO super featherweight champion Adrien Broner would have done against him. My guess is Salgado would have lasted two or three rounds at best. He doesn’t have the power to dominate in this division, and I could see someone like Vicente Escobedo taking his title if given the chance.
