Video Hype: Juan Manuel Lopez Works in the Gym

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Here's some video of Juan Manuel Lopez working out at the gym where he's been training since he was 12 years old. Now 27, Lopez faces Orlando Salido in Puerto Rico on Saturday night. We'll have a full preview sometime later today, and live, round-by-round coverage on Saturday night.

Without going into a full spiel just yet, does anyone get the feeling that this might be a trap fight for Lopez? Salido's a legitimate fighter, and Lopez has struggled with lesser opponents in the recent past, facing a mountain of trouble against Rogers Mtagwa and having to get off the canvas against Bernabe Concepcion. Can Salido win this thing and upset the apple cart?
