Juanma Looks To Bring in Alex Ariza For Mikey Garcia

Former two division world champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (33-2, 30KOs), who struggled with weight in the past, is looking to retain strength and conditioning coach Alexa Ariza.
Ariza is known for his work with Manny Pacquiao, Amir Khan and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
Juanma returns on June 15th in Dallas against WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia (31-0, 26KOs). A few months ago the Puerto Rican boxer admitted to having difficulties in making the featherweight limit.

Juanma's going for the "special shakes" of Ariza. He's trying to get in Pacquiao form after getting owned by Salido.Comment by Jerub_Baal on 05-08-2013
