Juanma Waiting For Opponent, Salido Waits For a Date

BoxingScene.com has been advised that WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez (30-1, 27KOs) is still waiting for a finalized opponent for his scheduled return on October 1 at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. There have been discussions to secure Mike Oliver, but his management is not happy with the money being offered - which I've heard is actually higher than what Oliver would have received for a previous deal to face Orlando Salido in July [Oliver withdrew]. Alternative options are being explored - if Oliver's side doesn't budge on the purse.

Speaking of Salido (36-11-2, 24KOs), the WBO featherweight champion is looking to squeeze in a second defense in the month of November in Mexico. Provided both fighters win, a rematch between Juanma and Salido is being targeted for the first quarter of 2012. Salido stopped Juanma in the seventh round of their April fight.

rematch is even money, either guy can take it surprised Salido got the stoppage last time he'll be more confident than Juanma picking Salido to get him again
