Juan Manuel Lopez Back on October 1 Against Mike Oliver

Top_rank_banner_medium

Juan Manuel Lopez will get back in the ring on October 1 for his first fight since losing to Orlando Salido on April 16, facing Mike Oliver in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.

Lopez (30-1, 27 KO) is the latest in a string of guys who are supposedly fighting Oliver (25-2, 8 KO), after Salido and Rafael Marquez both had dates set against the 31-year-old Connecticut native in July. Neither of those fights came off, obviously, but this one seems far more concrete, as actual press events have been held and everything.

Also on the card will be Puerto Rican super featherweight Roman "Rocky' Martinez (24-1-1, 15 KO) taking on Ramon Maas (25-1, 15 KO) of Mexico, and a WBO super bantamweight eliminator between Jonathan Oquendo (21-2, 14 KO) and Sod Kokietgym (51-2-1, 21 KO).

Really, it's a nice-looking card that would appeal to diehards, but U.S. TV isn't likely. HBO is running the Sergio Martinez vs Darren Baker / Andy Lee vs Brian Vera II double-header that night, and Top Rank has a show on Fox Sports Net headlined by the super bantamweight title fight between Toshiaki Nishioka and Rafael Marquez.
