Photos: Mike Oliver Training in Puerto Rico For Juanma

GUAYNABO, PUERTO RICO - Before leaving for the United States, Mike Oliver had a light workout in Puerto Rico, as there is less than two months before his collision with the former double world champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez, on October 1 at the Ruben Rodriguez Coliseum in Bayamon. The event is promoted by PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) and Top Rank Inc., and may be seen through pay-per-view. Photos by Joel Colon/PRBBP

Oliver (25-2 and eight KOs) trained by doing some floor exercises, different movements, and hitting the mitts with trainer John Scully at the Wilfredo Gomez Gym in Guaynabo.

"We are preparing to be in the best condition to face Juan Manuel Lopez, who we know is a strong puncher," said Oliver.

The boxer who plans to upset Lopez (30-1, 27 KOs) for the Latino featherweight title of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), showed good technique and speed in the ring.

Oliver and Scully would later travel to the United States to continue their preparation for the meeting with Lopez.

Tickets can be purchased through Ticketcenter or by calling 787 792-5000. Prices are $ 25, $ 50, $ 75, $ 100, $ 150 and $ 300.
