Juan Manuel Lopez Return in Play For February 2

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The return of former two-division world champion Juan Manuel Lopez (31-2, 28KOs) is being targeted for February 2 in Puerto Rico, according to promoter Peter Rivera of Puerto Rico Best Boxing. Juanma was beaten in two of his last three fights, by knockout, at the hands of Orlando Salido. When Juanma returns he will make his debut at 130-pounds.

"We wanted the return of Juanma to be in Puerto Rico so the people could see first-hand that he is ready. Maybe he will fight for a regional title, in order to be ranked," said Rivera to Carlos Gonzalez.

Fighters like Jose "Chelo" González and McWilliams Arroyo would also be part of the card.
