Cordoba Claims Low Offer Made Him Pass on Juanma

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Ricardo "El Professor" Cordoba has finally resurfaced and now claims that it was money that caused him to walk away from a possible fight with Juan Manuel Lopez. Cordoba management was negotiating with Top Rank for a Juanma fight on April 16 in Puerto Rico. During the talks, Cordoba vanished and his management was unable to reach him by phone. Top Rank would instead close a deal with Orlando Salido. There were reports that Cordoba has several levels of management who were arguing whether or not the boxer should take the fight. He claims the offer was only "$100,000" and he would have taken the fight for $150,000.

"The fight could have done, if I had been offered $ 50,000 more," said Cordoba.
