There are rumors circulating in Puerto Rico that former WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez (31-1, 28KOs) and his ex-wife Barbara are possibly going to reconcile.
Last April, when Juanma suffered his first loss as a pro by way of an eight round stoppage at the hands Orlando Salido (37-11-2, 25KOs), the Puerto Rican star and his wife were going through a very messy divorce. Juanma admits his mind was clouded during training camp because of the marital problems, and he was mentally affected in the fight.
As the rematch with Salido looms for March 10th in Puerto Rico, Juanma will enter the ring with a clear head and no personal issues clouding his mind.
