Juanma's Manager Suspended Due To Salido-Post Mess

By Rey Colon

Following the conclusion of an administrative hearing, Orlando Piñero, manager of former WBO featherweight champion Juan Manuel López, was suspended over his alleged role in the April 16th post-fight riot, which followed the main event at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon. Pinero's boxer, Lopez, lost his undefeated reacord and his belt to Mexico's Orlando Salido, who won the fight technical knockout at 1:39 of the eighth round, which caused an outcry in the ring that generated in a riot.

BoxingScene.com/Sport Press had anticipated the possibility that the Puerto Rico Boxing Commission would take action because of the serious nature of the case where even the mayor of Guaynabo, Hector O'Neill, received a head wound as a result of an object striking him.

Judging how emotionally unstable some of the Puerto Rican posters are on this sight, this doesn't suprise me one bit.

[QUOTE=Ray*;10480302][B]Did he start the riot or something? This seem like a quick trial and judgement.[/B][/QUOTE] Sounds like a fallguy/scapegoat for having PR's "prestige" prizefighter in Juanma for losing to a mexican.
