Zabala Would Love Vazquez-Juanma in June NY Clash

Felix "Tutico" Zabala Jr. of All Star Boxing recently spoke to BoxingScene about the future of his fighter Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. (22-2-1, 19KOs).

Vazquez Jr. injured his hands in his October 6th victory against Jonathan Oquendo. Zabala said that he is healing up and should be ready to return to the ring early next year.

"Vazquez had problems with his hands in the Oquendo fight. He is resting now and should be ready to return in February," stated Zabala.

Vazquez Jr. and countryman Juan Manuel Lopez (31-2, 28KOs) exchanged words after the fight. The two are long time rivals and there is definitely no love lost between them. Zabala said that he would love for Vazquez to move up to featherweight to face Lopez but feels that the fight needs to be built up first.

"I want that fight to happen but I think it needs a little more time. If Vazquez gets his title back and JuanMa gets a win then I think the fight would be bigger. They could fight in New York in June before the Puerto Rican Day Parade. That would be a huge fight," Zabala stated.

Lopez is currently serving a year suspension for derogatory comments made against referee Roberto Ramirez Jr. after his knockout loss to Orlando Salido. He is eligible to return to the ring next February.

This would be an entertaining fight if it happens, although I have my doubts cuz Puerto Rican fighters don't fight one another the way Mexicans do! The last significant fight that I can recall when it was an all PR showdown was Cotto-Quintana. At times its feels like for some reason they don't li...

i think wv2 would win this..juanma isn't really at a good point in his career and i'm not sure if his chin can hold up to wv2's punches. would be a good fight for puerto ricans and wv2 and juanma seem to have some good feud going on..

I would like to see this fight it would be a war between these two in NYC.

Don't know if wv2 would do so well at 126 but he fights anybody he's more active better all around fighter Juanma only has power

Awesome fight for PR. I also would be cool with WVJ verses Vic D.
