Rumors have been running wild in Puerto Rico that super bantamweight contender Jonathan Oquendo (22-2, 15KOs) had badly dropped Juan Manuel Lopez (31-1, 28KOs) during a recent sparring session. Both fighters are training together for their upcoming bouts on March 10th at the Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Oquendo will appear on the undercard, while Lopez challenges WBO champion Orlando Salido in the main event.

Oquendo denied the widespread rumor to Jose Sanchez - "Those are rumors. Our sparring sessions have gone well. None of that happened. The sparring we do is not strong, and simply done to learn. Do not listen to any of that."

Juanma was the last man to beat Oquendo, with a third round TKO in February 2008. The two have since become good friends.

There has to be better trainers and condition coaches for Juanma in Puerto Rico to teach him defense and bolster his stamina. Who are the good trainers in Puerto Rico? Why not hook up with them instead. Juanma will likely lose to Salido. Boricuas still have Cotto and Dulorme and Valle look ...

Oquendo dropped his ass in sparring and Salido will knock him the fuk out again. Juanma only knows one way to fight and I expect the same thing all over again.

[QUOTE=Cuauhtémoc1502]Bro, I have been plenty of pro camps and I can tell you that [U]if you are a sparring partner and you drop the headliner, you better keep your mouth shut or you won't have another job. Sounds to me like someone opened up their mouth and shouldn't have[/U].[/QUOTE] lol ...
