WBO: Juanma Suspended, Has Five Days To Answer Us

By Rey Colon

The President of the World Boxing Organization, Francisco 'Paco' Valcarcel, said former featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez is already suspended for a period of one year, which prevents him from participating in WBO title fights and he's banned from the WBO rankings. Juanma is being punished for unsportsmanlike conduct - pertaining to Saturday's post-fight outburst against referee Roberto Ramirez. 

After getting stopped by Orlando Salido in ten rounds, Juanma conducted a live television interview and accused the referee of being a gambler. Juanma has five days to show cause why he shouldn't be suspended.

"He has five days to show us why we should rescind the suspension. Right now [Juanma] is suspended for one year. We are giving him a chance to convince us to [reconsider the suspension] in five days. And we took apology into consideration," said the WBO's President.

"His expressions were very misguided and unfounded. I know it was a moment of frustration but you have to know how to behave at all times. This is a sport where you win and lose."

the Referee's name has been ruined and tainted for life. where ever the ref goes in the future people will look at him and think gambling and dishonesty. I would think the ref sues Lopez for millions and wins.

The ABC belts really need to stay out of this stuff, that is more up to the boxing commissions in my opinion. They never used to do this stuff until recently. Sounds like someone at the WBO has an ego…

When the son (Ramirez Jr.) stop the first fight, Juanma went on to make the same accusations. There were made and talked about within the PR media and fans themselves. It seems to me that it got brushed under the…
