Juanma Says He's in Top Form, Hopes To KO Salido

By Rey Colon

According to Juan Manuel Lopez (31-1, 28 KO's), he is 12 or 14 pounds away from the featherweight limit, and says that he is working at full steam for the scheduled rematch on March 10th at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum, when he faces Mexico's Orlando Salido for the WBO's 126-pound title.

"I'm doing very well thank God. I am about 12 or 14 pounds [away from the weight] and that is important and I am consciously working well in my preparations. Now we have a fighter called Hylon Williams (15-1) coming in from Las Vegas, Nevada. And Sixto Pizarro will be helping us for this fight," he said.

He said the hard work will be completed within a couple of weeks and then he plans to concentrate on keeping his weight on point to step on the scale at 126 or less on March 9.

"We will box as we were originally supposed to have done but this time we are going to come in there with a lot more focus. And we're ready to go to war if we have to. I would like to win this fight by knockout, but if necessary we will get the victory by decision. I have to fight him calm and keep my mind focused on what I do," Juanma said.

Salido by TKO again. Losing by TKO twice to a Mexican boxer AND in Puerto Rico is not gonna be good for Juanma.

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg;11791823]How, by hitting him on the chin? People have know how to beat him for a while now. It wasn't a surprise to be when Siri beat that ass. Matagwa had him on queer st. Marquez had him hurt, and…

I'm not buying it. If Juanma wins this could make this win that much sweeter since most expect him to get ran over again. But I think he depends far to much on volume punching and his power.
