GUAYNABO, PUERTO RICO- Former two time world champion Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez will return to the ring on February 2, headlining a DIRECTV “Pay Per View” show to be held at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, in a PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) presentation.

Lopez will share the show with world contenders Jose “Chelo” Gonzalez, McWilliams Arroyo, McJoe Arroyo and Jonathan “Bomba” Gonzalez who will fight for regional titles as part of the TV bouts.

 “We are going to present a great return for Juanma Lopez, who is going to show he is ready to fight and become word champion again”, Ivan Rivera, PRBBP President said. “But we have four world ranked fighters Chelo Gonzalez, McWilliams Arroyo, McJoe Arroyo and Bomba Gonzalez, in action fighting for regional titles and their important steps for world title chances”.

For Juanma Lopez (31-2, 28 KOs) this is his first fight since March, 2012, when he lost by TKO against Orlando Salido. He was then suspended for one year for a bad comment against the referee Roberto Ramirez Sr. but the Sports Secretary in Puerto Rico, Henry Neumann, pardoned Lopez and he will fight this February, 2, in Bayamon, in a bout scheduled to 10 rounds at 128 pounds.

“I’m training since August and I feel in good shape for my comeback. I will fight in another division, but the featherweights should know that I’m not out of that division. I’m going to fight at junior lightweight in my return bout and I’m going to see what happen”, Lopez said. “This will be a good show with my fight and the prospects and contenders Chelo Gonzalez, McWilliams and McJoe Arroyo, and Bomba Gonzalez, this will be great”.

Chelo Gonzalez (21-0, 16 KOs), the #1 WBO ranked in the lightweights, will defend for the fourth time his 135 pounds Latino WBO title against a foe to be named in a fight scheduled to 12 rounds. Gonzalez won his three 2012 fights by TKO over Hevinson Herrera, Joseph Layrea and Oscar Cuero.

Meanwhile, McWilliams Arroyo (13-1, 11 KOs), a former 2008 Olympian and 2009 Amateur World Champion, will defend for the second time his WBO Latino flyweight belt versus a rival to be determined. McWilliams, who is ranked #6 by the WBO in the 112 pounds division, won his four 2012 fights, two of them against veterans Luis “Titi” Maldonado and Ronald Ramos.

His twin brother McJoe Arroyo (11-0, 6 KOs), who is the #9 WBO ranked in the superflyweights, will fight also for the WBO Latino superflyweight against a foe to be named. McJoe, a former 2008 Olympian and 2007 Amateur World Championships bronze medalist, come from his most important win when on September 27, 2012, beat former world champion Jose “Carita” Lopez by a fourth round TKO.

Also, unbeaten prospect Bomba Gonzalez (11-0, 10 KOs), the 2008 Amateur World Youth Championships gold medalist, will defend his WBO Youth flyweight against a rival to be announced. Gonzalez won his four fights in 20012.

More information soon.

Win or lose I like watching JuanMa fight.

[QUOTE=jsfd26]Nevermind Gamboa had 15 months off huh? :lol1:[/QUOTE] His layoff = his own doing. Doesn't change the fact that he didn't look that great. I like Gamboa, but that Gamboa gets wrecked by Broner. To me, JuanMa seems like a good next option.

comment by LaBéstia, on 12-21-2012

JuanMa coming back to get stopped some more times? I might pay a few bucks to see him sitting on the canvas....like $15.00 tops though.
