Prediction,

Good match.
Diego De La Hoya, in my opinion, is one of the best boxing talents in the world, we know he has boxing talent in his blood, his cousin achieved a heck of a lot as a fighter back in the day, Diego has big shoes to fill, a lot to prove, but based on his win against Randy Cabalerro, he is already a phenomenal fighter, he is already a world level contender. I think for De La Hoya, at 23, it is good to stay active, he shouldn't be rushed into big fights, but he should stay consistent, try to move up the levels gradually, and I think Salgado is the perfect opponent for De La Hoya at this stage, a few losses, not too much, too soon for a young fighter who is still on the come up, but Salgado, a good fighter, maybe the best opponent of De La Hoya's career so far.

I think Salgado will fancy he can win this, he's 28, still young, his only losses have been to Rungvisai, Liborio Solis (split decision as well that one), a surprising defeat to a fighter called Gallo quite recently (also a split decision), and an early knockout loss to a fighter called Montes, back in 2009. Salgado has 36 wins, stopped 29, so he's a puncher, he has good experience, not only did he fight Rungvisai, but he also fought Carlos Cuadras for the WBC 115 title, drew with him, it was a 4 round TD, but it was a draw. Experience goes a long way in difficult fights, and sometimes learning fights can be so difficult that a prospect learns on the job, the hard way, loses.

I think De La Hoya will win this without much trouble if any, he doesn't have experience on his side, but every fighter has to learn at some stwge by taking tougher fights. I think De La Hoya is already easily good enough to beat Salgado, he is facing a puncher, and a young fighter as well, just not too young to have a lot of experience, but I think because De La Hoya just seems to be a higher calibre fighter, and he is fighting an opponent who has won 2 od his last 5, has been put in place when he did really step up and take on a great world level fighter, for these reasons, I think this will be De La Hoya's fight, it is a good test for him at this stage, but not a seriously tough test, and Salgado isn't a big threat I don't think.

It would be a good statement if De La Hoya could stop Salgado, if the stoppage comes, it comes, from what I've seen of De La Hoya, he isn't a big puncher, but he is a great volume puncher with a lot of output, really good engine, you can break fighters down, mixing it up, body and head, round after round, with accumulation. There is no pressure on De La Hoya to force the stoppage, it is good to keep getting the rounds, and picking up the points, winning the rounds, doing everything right, that's what's important.

I think De La Hoya wins this by UD, probably about as wide as he beat Cabalerro.
