San Diego junior featherweight Jesus Salud might be next in line for a world title shot against Marco Antonio Barrera. But at the Arrowhead Pond in front of a record Monday night crowd of 4,126, Salud appeared closer to retirement than a title shot. Salud (59-9) won an unpopular 10-round unanimous decision over awkward left-hander Amador Vazquez of Panama. Salud looked like an old 35 as he was battered by Vazquez for most of the fight.

San Diego boxer Jesus Salud has filed a protest with the International Boxing Federation to seek a rematch with super bantamweight title-holder Welcome N'Cita. Salud lost a unanimous decision to N'Cita Saturday in Italy. The protest, filed by Salud's manager, Bob DePhilippis, charges referee Joey Curtis cost Salud the fight by failing to note his knockdown of N'Cita in the fifth round.

Jesus Salud's trainer, Abel Sanchez, predicted Rudy Zavala would stand in with Salud for three rounds and then start running. Zavala, of Costa Mesa, should have listened to Sanchez. He stood toe-to-toe with Salud for eight rounds and got hit with punches from every angle. When Zavala could no longer see out of his swollen left eye, ring doctor Robert Karns mercifully stopped the fight at 2 minutes 16 seconds of the eighth round.

More than a few people have questioned junior featherweight Rudy Zavala's sanity for fighting Jesus Salud, especially since Zavala is venturing into the former World Boxing Assn. champion's hometown. They've told Zavala and his manager, Herb Stone, there's nothing to gain and plenty to lose by risking Zavala's 17-0-1 record, his No. 1 ranking (World Boxing Council) and his North American Boxing Federation title against an ornery, hard-hitting boxer who's ranked 13th by the WBC.

The Stroh's boxing tournament at the Forum is used by some fighters to get in work in a comeback attempt, or simply to win some prize money and move up in the rankings. In Monday night's bantamweight semifinal, Jesus Salud, 22, of Hawaii won a 10-round split decision over Kenny Mitchell, 25, of Pensacola, Fla., to remain undefeated and diminish Mitchell's dream of moving up. The fight, before 4,190 fans, was scored 96-94 Mitchell, 97-93 Salud and 97-92 Salud.

What are the chances of two championship bouts being decided by low blows the same night? It happened on a wild and crazy Monday at the Forum. Challenger Jesus Salud was awarded the World Boxing Assn. junior-featherweight title when referee Larry Rozadilla disqualified Juan Jose Estrada in the ninth round. Less than an hour earlier, the 6,166 fans saw Manuel Medina win the heretofore vacant WBA Intercontinental junior-lightweight title over Edgar Castro in the seventh round.
