Alex Caraballo, the head coach Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez, did not have any excuses as to his boxer's shocking TKO defeat at the hands of Mexico's Orlando Salido. However, Caraballo does believe referee Roberto Ramirez Jr. "rushed" to stop the fight in the eighth round, despite Lopez clearly looking hurt.

"I respect the work of the referee but this was a world title fight. Juanma always knew what was happening and kept throwing punches to avoid the referee from stopping the fight. This was a fight for a more experienced referee," Caraballo told Carlos Gonzalez

As far as the loss, he credits the performance of Salido. He doesn't believe weight struggles or Juanma's personal issues played a role in th outcome.

"It is time to reflect. If anything we are going to make a change for the next fight. [After Lopez went down in round five] our instructions were clear, to move, to box and don't waste punches, but Salido was determined to win the title. It was a bad night for us. [Weight] was not factor, it was not a fluke. It was a bad night," he added

I don't get this........ Cotto/JuanMa aren't clinching: His stans say "They need to clinch!". When Mosley was clinching Cotto nonstop when they fought: Mosley is making the fight boring, he is clinching, fight like a man. Funny how clinching only changes when it comes to their fav boxers.

Freddie Roach or Emanuel Steward can only help so much. It's still up to Juanma to stay focused and disciplined leading up to and during the course of a fight. But I know he wont change trainers until he loses again. Just like Cotto, took two losses to finally wake his ass up and get a new tr...

Foot work, you said it. Juanma is a plodder, as long as he doesn't have to move he can fight his fight, but it's getting late for him to learn how to dance.
