Juanma vs. Concepcion by November?
Plans are ongoing for a possible battle between newly-crowned WBO superbantam king Juan Manuel Lopez and Filipino Bernabe Concepcion on the undercard of superstar Manny Pacquiao’s next fight, possibly against Ricky Hatton later this year.
“The plan is to have Juanma fight two more times before the year is over. A possible fight is being considered for the August 30 undercard to the rematch between Ivan Calderon and Hugo Cazares. Then we want to return again in November and fight on a big fight card, maybe headlined by someone like a Manny Pacquiao,” Rivera told El Nuevo Dia.
Rivera only gave the names of Sergio Medina and Filipino Bernabe Concepcion when asked about possible opponents for the two dates.
