Juanma KOs Oquendo puts pressure on Concepcion

After ducking Bernabe Concepcion for a sure shot at Daniel Ponce de Leon’s WBO title, super bantamweight prospect Juan Manuel López (21-0, 19 KOs) defeats Jonathan Oquendo (14-2, 9 KOs) as expected by scoring a third round TKO over the GBP prospect in a bout for the WBO Latino Superbantamweight title in Héctor Solá Bezares in Caguas, Puerto Rico.

The victory not only solidified Juanma’s position as the number one challenger to Ponce de Leon’s title, (practically dashing Penalosa and Bautista’s calls for immediate rematches with DPDL) it also puts undue pressure on Bernabe Concepcion to put up a similar if not better performance against his next assignment, former Golden Gloves champ Torrence “Dynamite” Daniels who Jonathan Oquendo decisioned two years ago in Las Vegas.

The 24-year old Puerto Rican prospect Juanma Lopez improves his record to 20-0-0 with 19 KOs.
