Super bantamweight contender Wilfredo "Papito" Vazquez Jr. (22-2-1, 19KOs) is once again involved in a war of words with countryman and former two division world champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (31-2, 28KOs).
This past Saturday at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Vazquez stopped Jonathan Oquendo in seven rounds. Juanma and Oquendo are good friends. After the bout was over, Vazquez and Juanma traded words.
This is not the first time where tensions have exploded between Vazquez and Juanma. In April 2011 their rivalry got so bad that Miguel Cotto had to intervene as the voice of reason.
"Juanma has been looking for challenges, and I like fighting with the super heroes. Although the only thing that he's the hero of is Lazy Town," Vazquez told Raul Alzaga.
“I said to Juanma that I was ready for him, but he's conceited and believes that he's the last Coca-Cola in the desert. He had a good run and I am glad for him. He says 'pay me what I deserve’. Who does he think he is? [Floyd] Mayweather? A [fighter] with 11 defeats [Orlando Salido] beat him twice in his own house. [Juanma] has power, but he has no talent. I'm here to fight with him whenever he wants, and if it happens - he will end up worse than Oquendo."
