Arum on Juanma's Rise, Gamboa To Speed Up?

By Rick Reeno

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum gave his take on BoxingScene.com recent story where Orlando Pinero, the mananger of Juan Manuel Lopez, advised our Puerto Rican reporter Rey Colon, that his boxer is considering a move to 130-pounds in 2012. Lopez appeared very heavy in some of his recent photos, but Arum believes Lopez is still capable of fighting at 126 for a few more years. If Lopez is actually considering a move in weight, then a fight with Yuriorkis Gamboa would have to get made sooner than later.

"He did look heavy, but he was here last week and he was already 138-pounds [Lopez was rumored to be around 154 in January]. I don't see any reason on why he can't compete at 126 for a few more years. But, if he's going to go up, then it would speed up the process with Gamboa," Arum told BoxingScene.com

Lopez returns on April 16 against Orlando Salido in Puerto Rico. The next fight, according to Arum, would be a rematch with Rafael Marquez in September.
