Former two time World Champion, Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez, will travel tomorrow to Mexico to watch the first title defense of WBO featherweight champion Orlando Salido, this Saturday, July 23, at the Centro de Usos Multiples in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico. Lopez (30-1, 27 KOs) will travel with Peter Rivera, PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) vice-president, also to talk about the potential rematch against Salido (35-11-2, 23 KOs), who defends his WBO 126lb belt versus Japanese Kenichi Yamaguchi (17-1-2, 4 KOs). Salido beat Lopez last April 16 by an eight round TKO at the coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico to gain the Featherweight crown. “We are going to travel to Mexico to work on the rematch (Lopez-Salido) hoping for finalize all the details and schedule the fight,” Rivera said. October 1 and 15 are possibles dates for the Lopez-Salido fight that will apparently be held in Puerto Rico.
