Pedro Diaz Willing To Join The Corner of Juanma

By Miguel Rivera

As reported a few days ago, former two division champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez (33-3, 30KOs) confirmed that he is currently considering the possibility of hiring Cuban coach Pedro Diaz, who previously trained Juanma's countryman Miguel Cotto, and currently trains Guillermo Rigondeaux and Odlanier Solis. Juanma and Diaz have been discussing the details and their talks are ongoing. Juanma wants to return later this year or in early 2014.

"My philosophy is simple: every athlete requires discipline, dedication and desire. If you don't have those three things, then you do not talk to me," Diaz told Carlos Gonzalez.

"Juanma and Orlando Peñeiro, his manager, said they wanted to talk to me about working with them. I have my gym in Miami, Florida, and it would be nice to sit down to hear their plans. Juanma is a great competitor and he still has something to give. I think we can agree there is always a possibility [of coming together]. I'm not really looking for boxers because I have a job, but if they want to talk to me - I am willing to listen. Based on the proposal, I would be hired in addition to Alex Caraballo, who is still the coach of Juanma and I respect that."

Pedro says he requires three things, "discipline, dedication and desire," or "don't even bother talking" to him. So why's he still training Solis? lol

If you don't know defense, you will not win, you will just become a punching bag. Wear and tear = retirement, or you will risk brain damage even some more.

Do your best Mr Diaz nothing short of a Miracle would bring Juanma back from the zombie land. If you ask me it's too little too late.

Juanma needs like year with Diaz, to change the old habits take time. First juanma needs to learn how to move, how to work he three distances and get a sound defence, all these take time. :boxing:
