Juanma vs Salido Rematch on August 13 or August 20

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Peter Rivera of Puerto Rico Best Boxing, who promote Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez, says negotiations have begun for a rematch with WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido of Mexico. Salido captured the belt from Lopez with an eight round stoppage in April. Rivera met with Salido's promoter Fernando Beltran, and Showtime executives, during last week's Manny Pacquiao-Shane Mosley event in Las Vegas. The rematch would happen on August 13 or August 20 in Puerto Rico.

"Last week we spoke with Fernando Beltran and he likes the idea, and so does Bob Arum [CEO of Top Rank]. Executives from Showtime were also present and they realize that it would be a great fight. We need to present the offer to Orlando Piñero (López's manager) and once the business side is settled, Showtime will be called to finalize the fight and then make the announcement," said Rivera to Carlos Gonzalez.
