Juanma Lopez Not Allowed To Return Before March 2013

By Rey Colon

Former WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez, contrary to his statements over the weekend in Las Vegas, will have to wait until March 10, 2013 to return to the ring, according to the president of the Professional Boxing Commission of Puerto Rico, Dommys Delgado Berty. Juanma told BoxingScene.com a few days ago that he was looking to return in November, possibly at 130-pounds.

But Lopez is still serving a suspension for calling referee Roberto Ramirez Sr. "a gambler" after getting stopped in the tenth round of his March rematch with Orlando Salido of Mexico.

"What was removed from the original penalty was the $10,000 fine, and we lowered the community work from 100 hours to 50. He was given a concurrent [suspension] for one year, based on the day of the fight. Therefore he is not able to return until March 10, 2013. The only way he can fight in November is if he goes to Mexico or Europe. He can't fight in any state in America," she said.

Way too harsh, but maybe this'll do him a bit of good. Hopefully he isn't too rusty when he finally gets back in the ring.
