Juanma: I'll Only Fight Wilfredo Vazquez at 128 or Above

By Rey Colon

Former two division champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (31-2, 30 KO's) is certainly on board with fighting Puerto Rican rival Wilfredo "Papito" Vazquez Jr. (22-2-1, 19 KO's ) in an HBO televised fight on January 19th at The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden. He says the weight must be right.

Lopez is officially moving up to the super featherweight division. Vazquez is fighting at super bantamweight but he's willing to move up to 126 to make the fight. Lopez will not agree to any fight at 126. He says a fight with Vazquez would have to take place at 128 or above.

"I'm not going back to 126 pounds. My weight is now 130 pounds and if we are making the fight for the month of January we could do 128 plus. I can not do any less than that weight. If they want to reach that agreement, here we are. Papito Vazquez has been talking a lot and I have no problem fighting him. Wherever the money is, I am there....whether it's with Papito, Donaire or someone else," Juanma said.

Good for juanma, he is a TV friendly fighter. Two or three fights @ 130lb and later meet with Gamboa @ 135 or 140lb.

[QUOTE=El [email protected]@PR;12702957]Juanma is a monster puncher, and Rocky doesnt punch as hard, he is just a decent volume puncher. Juanma counter his ass and KHTFO silly![/QUOTE] Doesn't matter what Juanma is. He's not as durable as Rocky Martinez and Martinez…

[QUOTE=El [email protected]@PR;12703123]Height dont mean jack ****, Juanma is bigger in frame and stronger. Rocky doesnt have the chin that Salido have. I love Rocky's warrior mentality, but he gets flatten.[/QUOTE] Fat chance, Rocky hasnt gotten ko'd in any fight, Juanma…
