Juanma Lopez To Add Pedro Diaz as New Trainer?

By Miguel Rivera

Former champion Juan Manuel Lopez (33-3, 30 KOs) confirmed that he is talking with Cuban coach Pedro Diaz about the possibility of working together. Juanma told Jose Sanchez that nothing has been decided but the two of them are discussing the possibility of a working relationship. In his last ring appearance, in June, Juanma was easily stopped by Mikey Garcia. Juanma wants to continue his career at super featherweight. Diaz used to trainer Juanma's countryman Miguel Cotto, and currently trains Guillermo Rigondeaux, Odlanier Solis and several other boxers.
