Saturday night was not only the continuation of the endless Puerto Rico vs Mexican War, it was also the fight of the year!

Juan Manuel Lopez the undefeated Puerto Rican fighter who may be the next Manny Pacquiao, the next big boxing super star who is actually exciting to watch in the ring. 

With his huge win over Rafael Marquez in a fight that many are calling the fight of the year there was nothing but non stop action inside the ring at the MGM Grand for 8 thrilling rounds of war.

Lopez provided the minority Puerto Rican crowd the certified bragging rights to uphold until the next big Puerto Rican vs Mexican fight showdown.

Rafael Marquez was forced by Nevada state officials to go to the hospital when he was on his way up to the conference room, so he was unfortunately not present during the post fight conference.

However Rafael did ask Lopez for a rematch while they were still in the ring.

In the post fight conference JuanMa speaks to the media and answers questions from everything on who he will fight next, will he give Marquez a rematch, his thoughts on fighting Gamboa, and he is even called out by a bitter Mexican journalist who attacks him for not being able to knock Marquez out.

On a side note it is quite ironic that this bitter Mexican journalist who called out Lopez to his face was seen before the fight literally bowing down and kissing the feet of Puerto Rican boxing legend Felix Trinidad as Tito tried to enter the MGM Grand arena.


Juan Manuel Lopez is a true class act. He thanked God for not getting hurt and he was gracious and humble towards the media and took time and went out of his way to provide autographs and photos for the many fans and media.

See how Lopez handles all of these questions in the post fight conference video.
