Juanma Lopez Considering Return To 126-Pounds

By Miguel Rivera

Former super bantamweight and featherweight world champion, Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (34-4, 31KOs), is considering the possibility of returning to 126-pounds. In his fight against super featherweight Francisco Vargas on July 12th, Juanma appeared to be much smaller when the entered the ring and he was easily dispatched in three rounds on the Saul Alvarez-Erislandy Lara undercard.

After the fight, his handlers advised him to consider the idea of returning to 126-pounds, where the opponents won't be as big or as strong.

"What I can say is that [the fighters] at 130 are very big. I made the weight in the morning, but it was after a good breakfast without exercise. If I could do that, Orlando (Piñero, his manager and mentor) thinks it is a sign that I'm not really a 130-pounder, and I can make 126," Juanma said to Jose Sanchez.

"These days I'm meeting with my advisors because - whether I stay [in boxing] or not, eventually I have to walk away and I have to find another way to generate revenue. I'm not really a millionaire fighter like some people might think. My divorce really upset my financial situation. But I'm fine."
