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.

[quote=PRBOXINGCOTTO] Juanma would beat him if you don't apply pressure or have power your not beating him [/quote] Juanma ain't beating Magdaleno, Salido or Gamboa. Instead he wanted to fight a 122lber. That's what I call a p*say. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android

Juan Carlos Salgadois hurt so make Juanma vs Argenis Mendez (Mendez is #1 contender to the IBF belt)

Juanma needs to ease into things top rank trying to get rid of him already
