An Uncertain Time: Juan Manuel López Waits for His Future

2
Despite sporting an impressive record of 31-2 with 28 knockouts, López has taken a lot of abuse in the ring over the last two years. Except for his walkovers against a pair of ringworn opponents—Mike Oliver and Steven Luevano—López has been through the proverbial wringer recently. Before facing Salido, Lopez was nearly stopped in the last round by clubfighter Rogers Mtagwa in 2009. Next, Bernabe Concepcion dropped him with a hard counter left during the waning seconds of the first round of their two-round free-for-all. Even former bantamweight titleholder Rafael Márquez, long past his best, managed to shake López. "This is not the first occasion that I lost track of time after a fight," López said during the hearing. "It happened after the fight with Bernabe Concepcion. I don’t remember how I got to the dressing or how I took the drug test." From The Cruelest Sport
