Juan Manuel Lopez books easy return fight on February 2 in Bayamon

Jed Jacobsohn

Former super bantamweight and featherweight titlist Juan Manuel Lopez will return on February 2 in Puerto Rico with a fight that shouldn't last long.

Juan Manuel Lopez will get back in the win column on February 2 when he blows past Brazil's Aldimar Silva Santos in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, which is the more realistic and honest way to say that Lopez will return on February 2 against Santos.

Lopez (31-2, 28 KO) hasn't fought since he was battered and stopped over 10 rounds by Orlando Salido in March 2012, his second loss to the Mexican veteran. The last time the 29-year-old Puerto Rican won a fight that many gave him credit for was against Rafael Marquez in October 2010, but it's worth noting that his bouts with Salido were Fight of the Year contenders in both 2011 and 2012.

The action star is matched against an easy mark this time, even easier than the Mike Oliver bout he took between losses to Salido. Santos (18-3, 9 KO) couldn't even make it out of two full rounds with Jesse Magdaleno back in August, and has never won a fight away from the friendly rings of his native country.

Also expected to be featured on the card are lightweight Jose "Chepo" Gonzalez (21-0, 16 KO), and the Arroyo twins, super flyweight McJoe (11-0, 6 KO) and flyweight McWilliams (13-1, 11 KO).
