Juanma-Salido, Arce-Vazquez Double is Too Expensive

By Rey Colon

The rematch between WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido, and the man he knocked out in April, Juan Manuel Lopez, will be held in sometime in October, according to Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank. The fight will take place in Puerto Rico, but no decision has been made on an exact date.

A few weeks ago, Arum was kicking around the idea of a big televised doubleheader, with Juanma-Salido on top, and a co-main event featuring a rematch between WBO super bantamweight champ Jorge 'Travieso' Arce and once-beaten Wilfredo Vazquez Jr.

The doubleheader won't happen because the two fights combined, on the same televised show, is too expensive for the cable networks.

"I would like to present the two rematches on the same card but it's very expensive and I don't think that it will be possible," Arum said.

[QUOTE=Carlos Alberto;10769169]I agree. However, the problem with that is that the networks aren't too keen on going to Mexico right now; especially Sinaloa, which is where Arce is from. There have been over 35,000 drug-cartel related deaths in Mexico in…
