Juanma: I Will Show That I Can Dominate Orlando Salido
By Jhonny Gonzalez
Former champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (31-1, 28KOs) is counting down the days until he gets his chance to avenge last April's eight round TKO loss to Orlando Salido (37-11-2, 25KOs). They clash for a second time, for the WBO featherweight title, on March 10 at the Coliseo Roberto Clemente in Puerto Rico.
Juanma has been very quiet in the pre-fight build-up. He doesn't to talk too much. He would rather make a statement in the ring. During the first contest, Juanma was going through a divorce and other personal issues.
"I've been very quiet. Many people ask me why, but I'm just calm right now. I had alot of things on my mind [in the first fight], but now we are much better. This fight is giving me extra motivation, because I want to beat the person who beat me, and I want to show people who doubt that I can dominate Salido," Juanma told Les Jiminez.
