Penalosa-Lopez is on!

By Nick Giongco

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum told Fightnews on Monday morning (Sunday night in the US) that the April 25 super-bantamweight showdown between WBO 122-lb king Juan Manuel Lopez of Puerto Rico and ageless Filipino warrior Gerry Penalosa is green and go. “I have talked with Penalosa’s manager, Billy Keane, today and we’re doing the fight,” said Arum, whose company promotes the undefeated Lopez. Penalosa is under contract with Golden Boy Promotions but a deal has been made for the two to clash in a scheduled 12-rounder in Puerto Rico. Penalosa, 36, is currently training in Baguio City for a tuneup bout set Feb. 21 in Cebu against a crack Mexican rival. Penalosa is the current WBO bantam titleholder and the former WBC super-fly ruler.
