Penalosa-Juanma in Puerto Rico!

By Dennis Principe

Gerry Penalosa will have his own stab at boxing glory by facing super bantamweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez behind enemy lines. Interviewed by DZSR’s “Sports Chat” Monday morning hosted by this writer, Lopez’ promoter Ivan Rivera revealed they have already agreed on an April 25 date, possibly at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Penalosa meanwhile is set to take a tune-up fight on February 21 in Cebu by facing Mexican German Meraz. In a separate interview Penalosa said he has accepted every detail of the offer and is now awaiting for the contract to formalize his second shot at the world super bantamweight crown.
