Juanma's Trainer: He's More Focused, More Dedicated Now

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Trainer and manager Orlando Pinero is calling Juan Manuel Lopez "a new man." He says the fight is more focused and more dedicated to his training camp. Juanma (31-1, 28KOs) is training to avenge the first defeat of his career. He wants revenge for last April's knockout loss to Mexico's Orlando Salido (37-11-2, 35KOs). The rematch takes place on March 10th in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

"The Juanma I've seen [in camp] is more determined, more focused and more positive. He knows what he has to do to regain the title he lost and that's what we we are working on. We have to make a series of adjustments, but the bottom line is the commitment to train. I've watched the video of the first fight, as well as the past two of Salido, and it is important to work on certain details," Pinero told Carlos Gonzalez.

The only adjustments Juanma needs to make is to drop this prima donna/celebrity attitude he picked up after the Ponce de Leon fight. He let the Tito endorsements and the post Cotto era torch bearer vision get to his head.…

The JuanMa that fought Penalosa gets knocked out early and easy. He was walking down Penalosa, huge mistake with Salido! He needs to circle and use movement, angles throw punches and get out....that is what you are supposed to do…

salido must knock lopez out in order to win in PR. but, if you look at salidos record, thats pretty much the only way he wins anyway. but much respect to both mexico and puerto rico. great fight once again…
