Jose Pedraza is Open To Face Juan Manuel Lopez

By Rey Colon

Undefeated prospect José Pedraza (15-0 and 10 KO's) is ready to face all comers as 2014 starts, and he wants to secure a title shot in mid-2014. His father and trainer, Luis Espada, indicates that Pedraza is open to an all-Puerto Rican showdown with former two division world champion Juan Manuel Lopez (33-3, 30KOs), who plans to make another title run at 130-pounds. Pedraza is looking to get in one more fight in December.

"We hope to close [this year] with a total of five fights and then he will have a total of 16 in his career. And in 2014, you will see the best of Pedraza and we will be fighting a world champion at 130. That's what we want. That would happen in June or August in New York. We'll fight with anyone. Even if they want us to face Juanma - we are available. If we have to, we have to," Espada said.
