Juanma: I Would Fight Mikey Garcia, But at 130-Pounds

By Rey Colon

Juan Manuel Lopez, a two-time WBO world champion at bantamweight and featherweight, intends to continue his career at 130-pounds. He is open to facing the big names - like Nonito Donaire, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Miguel Angel "Mikey" Garcia and Jorge 'Travieso' Arce -  but the fights have to take place at super featherweight. Juanma returns to action on February 2nd at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon.

"Right now I find myself in that division, [at super featherweight] so a fight with Mikey would have to be at 130 pounds. A very interesting name ringing out is Gamboa, and Donaire's name too. And the other day I read that Arce wants to fight again. And now they are talking about Juan Carlos Burgos, who fought Rocky Martinez. And Rocky has been mentioned [as a possible opponent] but Rocky is like my brother. I really do not want to face him but this is a business and have to wait for a decision by the promoter. Many people talk about money, and it's good, but my health is more important [than starving myself down to 126]," Juanma said.

Juanma gets taken apart and starched by Garcia and Donaire. He probably gets starched by Gamboa too but Gamboa looked like crap in his last fight and he has mental lapses in fights and his chin is not the best.…

WTF Donaire and Arce are not fighting his ass at 130. Gamboa will spark his ass if they fight.
