Francisco Vargas Crushes Juanma in Three Rounds

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Francisco Vargas (20-0-1, 14KOs) got the biggest win of his rising career with a third round stoppage of former two division beltholder Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (34-4, 31KOs) to capture the WBO International/NABF super featherweight titles.

The bigger Vargas was getting the better of Juanma during their early exchnages and applied a lot of pressure. During the third, Vargas turned up the pressure even more and a series of hard punches put Juanma down at the end of the round. He was badly hurt but saved by the bell. The corner of Juanma felt their boxer was too hurt, and he most certainly was, to send out for the fourth round.

I never really liked JuanMa but, he has a big heart and always gives his all. The sad thing is he will still be fighting and it will probably be against Gamboa and it will probably be another bad ending…

[QUOTE=niceyboo3;14754799]Nah I just believe he has too much heart and balls for his own good. Some might call it cancer. He'd still give Gamboa a good scrap before he's knocked out. I believe he should entertain that one last fight.…
