Rod Salka is known for his boxing and I predicted a UD-10 but Salka flipped the script tonight and came out guns blazing and stopped tough veteran Emmanuel Lucero in the fifth round.

Salka hurt Lucero in the second with a big right hand and used his jab well early. Lucero never stopped charging in but was very ineffective. Salka used his legs well and threw nice combinations.

He hurt Lucero with a massive right in the fifth and stopped him with the ensuing flurry. Salka nabbed the NABA title that eluded him in his last fight.
