Jesus Cuellar-Juanma Lopez Eyed For 9/11 on FS1 Bill

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised by sources in Puerto Rico that a fight between WBA interim featherweight champion Jesus Cuellar (24-1) of Argentina and former two division champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (34-4) is being discussed for September 11th at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Cuellar last fought in May when he defeated Rico Ramos via unanimous decision. Lopez has lost 4 of his last 8 fights including a third round knockout against Francisco Vargas in July.  Lopez's last two fights have taken place at 130 pounds but the proposed fight against Cuellar would take place at the featherweight limit of 126 pounds with Cuellar's interim title on the line.  Lopez last made 126 pounds when he lost to Mikey Garcia in June, 2013.  The issue of whether Lopez can safely make the weight is one of serveral factors being discussed.

BoxingScene.com previously reported that the fight card, which will be televised by FoxSports1, will also feature Luis Ortiz against Lateef Kayode for the interim WBA heavyweight title and a battle between unbeaten junior middleweight prospects, Julian Williams and Elizier Gonzalez.

Cuellar gonna ko juanma. Juanma has no more chin.

Juan Ma is likely going to take another savage beating in this fight. Hopefully he's saved enough money so he can retire after this one.

Cuellar is rugged but very wide/wild with his punches maybe I'm still stuck in the past but Juanma has a chance if he catches him inside those bombs he'll be throwing of course the first time Juanma catches anything he'll…

A guy with crappy defense, slow reflexes and next-to-no punch resistance is (once again) matched against a puncher. It is painful to see Juanma absorb punishment at this point.
