Damn, woke up today to find out that WBA Jr. Lightweight Champ Jorge Linares got stopped in 73 seconds last night by Juan Carlos Salgado in Tokyo. Salgado had an impressive record coming into the fight but there weren’t any names on there.
Salgado dropped Linares with a left hook to the temple early in the first. Jorge never recovered from the punch, and seconds after he got up he was trapped in the corner and pummeled into a TKO.
Linares is now 27-1, 18 KOs and Salgado is 21-0-1, 15 KOs.
