By Rey Colon

The two-time world champion Juan Manuel Lopez will start training next week, noting that his comeback would be in December or January 2014 in the junior lightweight division. In his last fight, Lopez (33-3, 30 KO's) was knocked out in four rounds by Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27 KO's) in brawl for the WBO featherweight title. Garcia failed to make weight for that match and the belt became vacant afterwards.

"Right now I'm resting. I have not sat down with my promoter to discuss [my next step]. Next week I start physical conditioning because I have to take care of that. [My next fight] would have to wait until December or January. I'm not going to make a quick return. I am overweight. Right now I'm at 155 pounds and when I can box, I will be at 130," Juanma said.

"I'm not retired but I'm not going back to 126. Something happened in the [Garcia fight], I do not know how to explain it. He was in great physical condition. The first round was fairly even but from there I went ahead and became disoriented and got lost in the fight. I never really got my distance. I never found it."

I find it increasingly painful to read about JuanMa. He really needs to find something else to do.

Better break the pillow out so you're more comfortable

He can no longer perform at the top level. I guess he'll find out the hard way.

He will always have that punchers chance but he seems to have lost alot in such a short period of time. Maybe changing his team and trainer and taking a new approach can be something to motivate him but as of right now, its hard to imagine him getting back to where he was at.
