Team Juanma Turn Down Magdaleno For Jan. 19

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com has been advised by sources close to the situation that former two division champion Juan Manuel Lopez's team has turned down a potential fight against undefeated super featherweight prospect Diego Magdaleno (23-0 9 KO's).  The fight card is going to take place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on January 19th.

The HBO tripleheader is being promoted by both K2 Promotions and Top Rank.  WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido will face Mikey Garcia on the telecast along with the return of WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin (24-0) against an opponent to be determined.

Lopez was originally going to face former super bantamweight champion Wilfredo "WV2" Vaquez but the fight fell apart when both sides could not agree on the catch-weight.  According to our sources Lopez is looking for a bigger fight in his first fight since his suspension following his March 10th defeat to Orlando Salido.

Diego Magdaleno returns on December 7th at the Texas Station Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, NV.
