Juanma Warns Donaire: Stay Away From Featherweight

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Last Saturday, WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez was ringside at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to watch Filipino Nonito Donaire capture the WBO/WBC bantamweight titles with a two round knockout of Fernando Montiel. After the big win, the prospect of fighting Juanma and other featherweights was brought up in conversation to Donaire. The unbeaten Puerto Rican has warned Donaire to stay away from the featherweight division, at least for a while.

"I think that at 118, he should dominate without any problems and perhaps he can do the same at 122-pounds, but at 126 I think right now it's a little too much for him. Not only against me but against [Yuriorkis] Gamboa and against Orlando Salido," Juanma told Carlos Gonzalez. "So far he's never felt a blow from a man at 126-pounds. It is not the same. [Donaire] is not a fight that I would dismiss. It would be a good fight, but at the right time. Right now I think he's not ready [to be at featherweight].
