Juanma Could Possibly Continue Career at Super Feather

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former WBO super bantamweight and featherweight champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (31-2, 28KOs) is possibly going to continue his career at super featherweight. According to manager and trainer Orlando Pinero, Lopez has to work very hard to make the featherweight limit of 126-pounds. At nearly 29-years of age, Pinero believes it's time for his boxer to consider a move to 130-pounds.

Last Saturday in San Juan, Lopez was stopped for the second time in his last three fights. Both defeats came at the hands of Orlando Salido of Mexico.

[QUOTE=UmissUpay;11882617]his chin wont move up in weight with him[/QUOTE] To 130, it will. Any farther, it may not. Juanma lost his snap and his tight punching as well as any defense he had. His last several fights have looked bad…
