Wilfredo Vazquez Jr: Juanma Repulses Me, I Will Knock Him Out!

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico  - This Saturday night's grudge match between Puerto Rican former world champions Wilfredo "Papito" Vázquez, Jr and Juan Manuel "JuanMa" López is no hype job.  Plain and simple, they really dislike each other immensely and both have predicted knockouts in their 12-round Special Attraction showdown, contested at a 129-pound catch-weight, which will air live on pay per view from Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
 
"There is super real animosity," Vázquez confirmed. "I cannot stand him; he repulses me. He has always undervalued and disparaged me.  He's never given me my proper place.  This is the first time in my career that I make a prediction: I will knock him out!"
 
Guerra En El Clemente: Vázquez Jr. v. López, presented by Black Tiger Promotions, is being distributed live by Integrated Sports Media in the United States and Puerto Rico, starting at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT, on both cable and satellite pay per view on iN Demand, DISH, DIRECTV, Liberty Cable, Claro TV and Vubiquity.  The event will also be available to watch across Canada on Fight Network, as well as via Fite TV app for iOS and Android devices or watch on the www.Fite.TV website.  Suggested retail price is $29.95.

The Vázquez, Jr. vs. López main event is presented in association with Matias Entertainment and sponsored by Best Alarms and Municipio de San Juan.
 
Vázquez, Jr. (24-6-1, 19 KOs), the son of three-division world champion Wilfredo Vázquez, is fighting out of Bayamón, also home of the late Hall of Famer Héctor "Macho" Camacho.  Vázquez became the vacant WBO super bantamweight world champion in 2010, knocking out previously unbeaten Marvin Sonsona (14-0-1) in the fourth round.
 
The 33-year-old López (34-5, 31 KOs), fighting out of Caguas, Puerto Rico, is a former World Boxing Organization (WBO) super bantamweight and featherweight world champion.  "JuanMa" was one of the top pound-4-pound fighters in the world from 2008 to 2010 but he hasn't fought in two years.

"I have discipline," Vázquez, Jr. added, "which many fighters lack.  I am a better fighter than him and I also have a punch, So, what he lacks, I have extra.  I do not know how much he has left in him. I don't care about that stuff but I do not underestimate him. I will do what I've prepared for...win.  This fight is about who is more intelligent in the ring.  I will use my head to to produce a work of excellence.  I am very clever in the ring and I will do what's needed to win.  There will be fireworks, as well, no doubt about it.
 
"I am very happy for this opportunity.  I will be back on top and refocus my career towards another world title and many other good things for me and my family.  To that person, who is always looking for me to fail, and you know who you are, standby for a great surprise."
 
In other PPV fights, former world title challenger Jonathan Oquendo (26-5, 16 KOs), who takes on Mexican rival Gustavo "El Gustavo" Molina (23-13, 9 KOs) in the 10-round co-feature, has notable career victories over Jhonny Gonzalez (DEC10) Alexandro Montiel (TKO1).

Rising junior welterweight star Yomar "The Magic" Alamo (11-0, 8 KOs), the reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) FECARBOX champion, will be fighting in his first scheduled 10-round bout against an opponent to be announced very soon.

Puerto Rico Olympian Jantony Ortiz (5-0, 3 KOs) meets fellow Puerto Rican bantamweight Luis Hernandez in a 6-round match to open the PPV action.

All Vazquez has to do is pop Juanma's chin cleanly, don't stand and trade, and he will get the KO win... as long as he doesn't give Juanma a punchers chance by staying in front of him, he has it…

These two act like anyone cares about this crap fight.

I would watch but not pay for this fight. Juanma should be able to pull this one off. If not go back to being retired.
