Juan Manuel Lopez vs. Vazquez's Trainer - Fight Set For March 17!

By Miguel Rivera

Last October, a media frenzy was created from the aftermath of the wild scene post-fight at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

That night, a Puerto Rican grudge match that was years in the making had finally taken place, when Juan Manuel 'Juanma' Lopez (35-5, 32 KOs) and Wilfredo 'Papito' Vazquez Jr. snapped their respective retirements to fight each other.

In what was a close fight - in the ring and on the official scorecards - Juanma exploded in the eleventh round by dropping and then stopped Vasquez Jr. for the satisfying win.

Right after the conclusion of that fight, Juanma over to Vazquez's corner and began trading punches with his rival's trainer, Albert "El Entrenadorcito" Rivera. The two men had exchanged several hard punches before they were separated. The videos of the incident went viral and generated millions of views all over the world.

Afterwards, both men were fined and suffered suspensions from the Puerto Rico Boxing Commission.

There was still some bad blood remaining, because both of them claimed victory in their brief but dramatic post-fight brawl.

Now they will settle their dispute in the ring. Because of their suspensions and Rivera's status as a trainer - the two of them will collide in an "exhibition" match with all of the proceeds going to charity. 

The fight is scheduled for March 17th at the Rubén Rodríguez Coliseum in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. The event will include many other exhibition fights where high profile former world champions, Olympians and many others will face well known artists and celebrities. There will also be live music and other forms of family entertainment.

Tickets are already on sale and are available at fangig.com and gustazos.com.

SPEECHLESS-----i guess with cotto semi retired and verdejo not delivering in recent performances this has become the best in boxing the island can produce. I wonder if trinidad would come out of retirement to participate lol
