Juanma-Salido, Arce-Vazquez Double Eyed For Feb

By Rey Colon

According to promoter Felix 'Tutico' Zabala of All Star Boxing, a doubleheader is being eyed for February in Puerto Rico. Zabala co-promotes Wilfredo 'Papito' Vazquez Jr. with Top Rank. Zabala's boxer, Vazquez, would get a chance at revenge by facing WBO super bantamweight champion Jorge Arce. The Mexican champion knocked Vazquez out in the tweflth round of their May clash in Las Vegas.

The main event would feature another rematch, with Juan Manuel Lopez attempting to get revent on WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido. The Mexican champ upset Lopez with an eight round TKO in April.

"I confirmed with Top Rank that Vazquez's rematch with Arce will take place in February, right here in Puerto Rico, along with Juanma and Salido. We're working on it and looking for a television network [to carry the show]," Zabala said.

Arce defends his title this Saturday in Mexico. Vazquez will return in Puerto Rico on October 29th, and Juanma faces Mike Oliver on October 1 in Puerto Rico.

damn, what an awesome idea. it would've been great if these two matches were on the cotto/margs undercard, that would be the ultimate card imo.
