Promoter Peter Rivera of Puerto Rico Best Boxing says two division champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (34-4, 31KOs) is looking for a final run at the featherweight limit of 126-pounds. Juanma had moved up to super featherweight and saw himself get blown out in three rounds last month by prospect Francisco Vargas.

Juanma returns to action on the 11th of September at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas against Argentine Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar for the interim title of the World Boxing Association.

Of course, there are many who want to see Juanma before he gets seriously hurt. He's suffered four devastating knockout defeats since 2011. A loss to Cuellar (24-1, 18KOs) would certainly be the end.

"There are many ways to see what is happening with 'Juanma' right now. He is focused, he is training and he thinks that against Vargas he didn't have the power in his hands at 130 pounds as he would've at 126. He feels it's best to return to featherweight. For him, boxing is still a passion. There are many boxers like Zab Judah, who after suffering a great defeat, they return and have big wins. I think 'Juanma' is focused on going in that same direction," Rivera said to Carlos Narvaez.

His family should have a serious discussion with him. He is on his way to mental illness if he keeps fighting. His head gets banged around every fight like a rag doll.

I still think Juanma has some gas in the tank, he just needs a better trainer.
