Juanma Lopez: After Garcia - I Want Nonito Donaire!

By Miguel Rivera

Former two-division world champion Juan Manuel Lopez (33-2, 30KOs) is having no problem making the featherweight limit for Saturday's fight with WBO champion Mikey Garcia at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. When Lopez left the gym on Wednesday, he weighed 127-pounds - one pound under the featherweight limit.

After dropping back down to face Garcia, Lopez found that he didn't really struggle to make the weight. He felt so comfortable in camp that he wants to stick around for at least one more fight - against Filipino star Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20KOs). Donaire would be Lopez's final fight at 126, before he moves up to chase a third world crown at super featherweight.

"After Mikey Garcia, I want to fight Nonito Donaire and then I'm going to move up to 130-pounds to pursue a title there," Juanma said.

Juanma's an idiot calling for Donaire when more than likely won't make it pass Garcia, but obviously Bob will use him as a stepping stone for Donaire at 126!
