WBO Threatens Juanma With One Year Ban For Ref Attack

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - Former double world champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez must explain why he shouldn't be suspended for one year from any possible activity with the World Boxing Organization (WBO), after making his statements on Saturday night against the referee Roberto Ramirez, which took place after Juanma's TKO loss against Mexico's Orlando Salido, the current WBO featherweight king.

WBO President, Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, announced that a recent vote among the Executive Committee of the WBO - approved a resolution where Lopez must "show cause as to why he should not be suspended for one year from appearing in the WBO ratings or fighting for any regional or global title of the WBO."

Lopez (31-2, 28 KOs) lost via TKO for a second time against Salido (38-11-2, 26 KOs), this time in the tenth round. After visiting the canvas, referee Ramirez saw the poor condition of Lopez and stopped the fight. This provoked a surprising reaction from Juanma, who made several statements against Ramirez on live television, in which he called Ramirez a gambler and the incident led to Monday's vote and decision by the WBO.

[QUOTE=JoeWbbmest311;11881476]I still don't understand the whole "gambler" thing? How does he know this information about the referee? And what was he implying that the man's gambling addiction, true or falste had anything to do with the outcome of the fight?[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=jsfd26;11882383]You know, I was thinking if Juanma gets banned that's 0-4 for TR. First when Juanma suffered his first loss, second the Gamboa-Rios possibly not happening, third Juanma's 2nd loss + his post fight interview and now him being banned.…
