Round 12 Gamboa 8-7 Siri slips on paint, BS KD, Gamboa legit drops him, docked two points for hitting while down. Gamboa 112-111 The fact that this fight is misremembered as this one sided schooling annoys the **** out of me, I guess its just urban legend at this point, the fact is Salido shaded the 2nd and the 6th with more volume, while his underrated defense went seemingly unnoticed, Gamboa was connecting with Siri's gloves more often than not. Siri won the 5th and the 8th big, and outworked him in the 9th. The first knockdown was crap in the 12th, he slipped on the paint on the ad in the middle of the ring, the second was legit though, and the two points docked from Gamboa were very valid deductions. Gamboa's performance against Salido in his 18th professional fight, all things considered is actually less impressive than Lomachenko's. Loma wasn't dropped or hurt, wasn't hit clean very often, as opposed to Gamboa who ate several bombs clean, Loma also didn't lose any one round as badly as Gamboa did a few. Also based on styles, Gamboa should have had more of an advantage than Loma did, but Gamboa's poor ring IQ threw that out of the window. Loma showed better ring IQ, far more maturity and an ability to adjust than Gamboa did, and in my opinion put on the more impressive performance of the two.
