The postfight claim of Juan Manuel Lopez labeling referee Roberto Ramirez as a ‘gambler’ could keep Juanma out of the ring until September 2013. According to reports, the Puerto Rico Boxing Commission’s official examiner Alberto Arroyo is recommending a one year suspension, a $10,000 fine, 100 hours of community service at a location to be designated by the Commission and a course in impulse control. Lopez was automatically suspended for 90 days by the Boxing Commission’s Medical Commission following his knockout loss on March 10 to Orlando Salido and doctors allegedly decided to increase the ‘rest’ for another 90 days to expire on September 10. The one-year suspension would begin on September 10 and last until that date in 2013. Lopez may appeal these sanctions to the Secretary of the Department of Recreation and Sports Henry Neumann, who is enjoying a short holiday taking advantage of the approach of Easter,or if he is opposed to doing an appeal there is the option to go to court. Arroyo confirmed on Friday that his recommendations have been submitted to Commission president Dommys Delgado Berty.
