Hard Case: Juan Manuel Lopez-Orlando Salido Preview

Juan Manuel Lopez has used a lethal right hook to overwhelm the vast majority of his opponents. Lopez’ hook—now considered one of the more dominant weapons in boxing—felled respectable names like Bernabe Concepcion, Steven Luevano, and Gerry Penalosa, and eventually submerged legendary action figure but shopworn Rafael Marquez in the biggest bout of the 27-year-old’s career. Saturday night at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, he’ll be facing a hardened veteran who has proven to be difficult to overwhelm. By Michael Nelson of The Cruelest Sport.
