Juanma Card Could Have Vazquez Jr. vs Oquendo Clash

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The return of former champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez could have a stacked undercard. Juanma's return is being targeted for October 1 at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Juanma wants a high-ranked contender to prepare him for an early 2012 rematch with Orlando Salido, who knocked the Puerto Rican boxer out in eight rounds to capture the WBO featherweight title in April. Juanma's next opponent will be announced very soon.

Besides Juanma, Puerto Rico Best Boxing and All Star Boxing are trying to put together a WBO eliminator between Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. (20-1-1, 17KOs) and Jonathan Oquendo (21-2, 14KOs). The winner would become the mandatory challenger to WBO super bantamweight champion Jorge Arce of Mexico.

The card would also feature the long awaited return of Roman 'Rocky' Martinez (24-1-1, 15KOs).

WV2 was the champ. He should let Oquendo get his shot, then face the winner of Arce vs Oquendo.
