The planned October card is starting to take shape. Roman "Rocky" Martinez, the former junior lightweight champion of the WBO, has advised BoxingScene.com that he reached a two-year promotional agreement with Top Rank and his first fight will be on October 1 at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. 

As previously reported, the main event will feature the return of the former WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez, and Mike Oliver is being mentioned as a possible opponent. Additionally, former WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo 'Papito' Vazquez Jr. would face Jonathan Oquendo in a final WBO super bantamweight eliminater.

"I will fight on October 1st, here in Puerto Rico, [with] Juanma fighting [on the show] and Jonathan going against Papito Vazquez. We reached a two-year agreement with Top Rank and our plans are to fight in October and December, and in 2012 we'll fight again for the title," Martinez said.

And when Martinez, who has a track record of 24-1 with 15 knockouts, appears in Puerto Rico for his next two fights, they will be promoted by PR Best Boxing Promotions.

"I want to regain the championship and I'll fight with Ricky Burns or whoever is champion at that time. I will come with everything," he said.

Mike Oliver pulled out of the Salido fight last minute because he severely strained ligaments in his arm in his fight in July in Philadelphia...he also is remaining at 122 pounds because even though he didnt try to he came in at 121 POUNDS in that fight...one pound UNDER the 122 limit so fighting...

Top Rank also signed Luis "El Artsesano" Cruz recently so that's another possible matchup. Luis should be fighting in September 10 on the undercard of Gamboa and then facing a GBP prospect I can't recall his name for an eliminatory for the WBO title(I think that's the organization).

Well, you can expect Juanma-Martinez soon lol I got Juanma by early KO if he can carry his power to 130.

I'm happy for Martinez. He really is a good boxer. Now he has a good promoter, the only thing he needs now is a good trainer to help him with his boxing. I always think that Martinez is a diamond in need of polish.

Oliver will be no test for Lopez, just sparring....he pulled out vs Salido less than a week before the fight last month...
