WV2 will not move up two divisions to face Juanma

Former WBO super bantamweight world champion Wilfredo “WV2” Vazquez of Bayamon, Puerto Rico will not move up two divisions to fight Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez at super featherweight on January 19 at MSG.

“We where offered the fight at the featherweight limit and we had an agreement in principal with Top Rank’s Carl Moretti,” said WV2’s promoter Tuto Zabala, Jr. “We have no problem fighting Juanma, it’s all about business. It’s a very interesting fight and Puerto Rican fight fans are eagerly waiting for it.

“After they agreed, now they want to take advantage with the divisions. If he can no longer make the featherweight limit then we will wait for our WBO jr. featherweight title fight. There’s no rush, we want our title back and the winner of the Donaire-Arce fight on December 15. The day will come at the right moment. We already beat Juanma’s pupil Jonathan Oquendo to prove who is the best super bantamweight in Puerto Rico and we are available to prove who is the best featherweight of the Island by knocking him out.”
