WBO junior featherweight champion Juan Manuel ‘Juanma’ Lopez (27-0, 24 KOs) easily made the 30 day weight limit today at el Gimnasio José ‘Cheo’ Aponte in Caguas, Puerto Rico. Lopez weighed in at 139 pounds. The maximum weight limit allowed was 146.9. Lopez will challenge WBO featherweight champion Steven Luevano (37-1-1, 15 KOs) January 23rd at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York with HBO televising. The PR Best Boxing (Ivan & Peter Rivera) and Top Rank promoted Lopez is thrilled about moving up 4 pounds north to the featherweight division and is feeling stronger than ever. ” My weight is very good. I haven’t had to diet or anything. I had breakfast and lunch today and look at what I weighed in at today. I don’t have to sacrifice anywhere near as much to make 126 as I did 122 pounds. I’m feeling as strong as I’ve ever felt.”
