Bad Left Hook Live Results and Coverage: Juan Manuel Lopez v. Orlando Salido

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Showtime goes live from Puerto Rico tonight with a two-fight card at 10:30pm EDT. In the main event, Juan Manuel Lopez (30-0, 27 KO) faces gritty veteran Orlando Salido (34-11-2, 22 KO), and in the co-feature at 130 pounds, Luis Cruz (17-0, 14 KO) takes his first real test against Martin Honorio (29-5-1, 15 KO).

Bad Left Hook will have live coverage of the main event, following our coverage of the Berto-Ortiz fight on HBO.

A bit from our preview:

I'm not picking the upset here, because I don't think Salido is quite the right guy to beat Lopez. But I will say this: Lopez better not be as overconfident as he has seemed at times, because Salido is a smarter, better fighter than Concepcion or Mtagwa. And if those guys can trouble Lopez even a little (and Mtagwa troubled him a lot), then Salido can trouble him plenty enough to score an upset. A weekend after plenty of surprises, this one has an outside chance at topping them all. But I'm still going with the favorite. Pick: Juan Manuel Lopez UD-12
