Juanma Being Steered in The Direction of Donaire Clash

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Promoter Peter Rivera of Puerto Rico Best Boxing would like to get Juan Manuel Lopez (32-2, 29KOs) an undercard spot on the Nonito Donaire-Guillermo Rigondeaux undercard on April 13th.  Rivera would like to set up a match between Lopez and Donaire (31-1, 20KOs) in the near future. Rigondeaux is said to be Donaire's final match at 122-pounds. He will then move up to 126. Lopez is fighting at 130, but a catch-weight of 128 can be worked out.

"We would like to fight with Nonito. It's a very appealing fight right now. And economically its also the best [option]. Donaire has a fight in April and we want to be on the undercard that night to begin creating the atmosphere of this fight, which could happen between August and September. We know that Nonito will rise to 126 pounds and we are available to fight at a catch-weight," Rivera said to Carlito Narvaez.

There is no glory for Nonito to beat JuanMa Lopez. But there would be huge rise in his stock if he fights and beats Yuyorkis Gamboa at 130. After Rigo, Donaire could fight and win a title at 126 and…

Donaire will surely beat rigo via tko. Donaire is much more supeior than rigo in terms of power, speed, skills, ring intelligence and especially strength of chin.Donaire also has the feared left hook, power with both hands, a switch hitter(can…

There is always a before and an after. Before Salido and after Salido. Before Rigondeaux and after Rigondeaux. Juanma vs Nonito will be a good fight for both guys coming out of defeats.
