Juan M Lopez: That’s a Wrap!


By Rudy Mondragon

Juan Manuel Lopez (34-5, 31 KOs) was brutally knocked out in the second round by Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar (25-1, 19 KOs) in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Lopez looked like damaged goods. He is a fighter who has not recovered from the beatings he received from Orlando Salido, Francisco Vargas, and Mikey Garcia.

Jesus Cuellar did what he needed to do. He won by KO and entertained the fans in attendance. It is a win that puts his name in the mix of the featherweights. It is also a win for Robert Garcia, who will be in Marcos Maidana’s corner on Saturday night as they take on the best ever, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Juan Manuel Lopez will no longer be a top contender in boxing. Should he continue to fight? Based on last night’s performance, it might be in his best interest to walk away from the game that does not forgive a fighters health if they are not careful.
