A FORGIVEN JUANMA LÓPEZ RETURNS FEB 2 IN PUERTO RICO;


PhilBoxing.com




Former two-division world champion Juan Manuel "Juanma" López gets back into fight action on February 2, 2013, in the main event of "Noche de Campeones" at El Coliseo Rubén González in Bayamón, Puerto Rico, a production of Puerto Rico's PR Best Boxing Promotions.

Juanma López (31-2, 28 KOs), once a fearsome super bantamweight and featherweight champion, returns to the ring in a non-title 10-rounder bout against an opponent to be announced, and the mind of the tough southpaw is set into being a world champion again.

JUANMA: "126 and 130 POUNDERS GET READY FOR ME"

It will be Juanma's first fight since being crushed for a second time by Mexican Orlando Salido (39-11-2, 27KO's) last March and suspended by the Comisión de Boxeo Profesional de Puerto Rico (CBPPR) after comments the outspoken Juanma made during a live televised post-fight interview.

The suspension was ended by Puerto Rico's Secretario de Recreación y Deportes, Henry Neumann, so the hard-hitting Juanma López is now able to continue his stellar boxing career and has already been ranked #5 featherweight by the WBO.

"I've been training since August and I am in very good condition. Now I'd fight in another division, but all 126-pounders beware that I am am not gone, and the 130-pounders should be ready for me," said the 29-year-old Puerto Rican star.

"I want to be world champion again and I am focused on my training."

JONATHAN "BOMBA" GONZALEZ WANTS VILORIA

In the same card, young slugger Jonathan "Bomba" González (11-0, 10KO's) will defend his interim WBO Youth Flyweight Title against a fighter to be announced.

The hard-swinging 21-year-old Jonathan "Bomba" González, who became Amateur World Champion in 2008, is currently the #12 Featherweight by the WBO and has pulverized by knockout his four opponents of 2012.

"I am prepared to fight any world-rated boxer and I am also ready for Brian Viloria," said Jonathan "Bomba" González while looking at WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcárcel.

THE UNDERCARD FEATURES PUERTO RICOS RISING STARS

In addition to Juanma López and "Bomba" Gonzalez, Puerto Rican world-rated figthers Lightweight José "Chelo" González (21-0, 16KO's), as well as twin brothers Flyweight McWilliams Arroyo (13-1, 11KO's), and Super Flyweight southpaw McJoe Arroyo (11-0, 6KO's) will be featured in regional title fights.

The 27 year-old McWilliams Arroyo won the Gold Medal in the 2009 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Milan, while brother McJoe Arroyo won bronze in 2007 at World Amateur championships in Chicago.

McJoe and McWilliams represented Puerto Rico in the Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.

VARCARCEL: THE BAYAMON "NOCHE DE CAMPEONES" CARD IS IMPORTANT

The WBO President Francisco "Paco" Valcárcel, present during today's presser in Puerto Rico, praised the quality of the fighters that will take part in "Noche de Campeones" and said that "each and every one of them (Juanma Lopez, Chelo González, "La Bomba" González, McJoe Arroyo and McWilliams Arroyo) will be battling for world titles next year. That's why this card is important."
