Default Juan Manuel Lopez vs. Ponce Deleon

Now with Bautista out of the mix, Lopez is actually next in line for Deleon's belt.


Who wins and why

I agree...they should learn from Bautista and not rush Juan Manuel. Give him 2 more years.

Good question

Personally, I think he should....he and his team may be very confident in his ability and want to get a title shot right away (and get some money), or they will take a lesson from Rey Bautista and wait a while.

I doubt he'll forfeit the bout if he becomes the mandatory. He'll take the fight, I'm just saying the outcome will look alot like tonights.

Maybe Lopez has a solid chin though. Had Bautista had a good chin , perhaps he could of made a fight out it.

Bautista was almost Ko'd twice by journeymen before stepping up. He has a great amout of skills, he just cannot take a big punch. No amount of fights can make a fighters ability to take a punch better. Bautista can improve his skills and avoid getting hit like Maskaev or Wlad . But for Bautista that would require an entire new style of fighting , to avoid getting hit.

yeah, that's one thing I can agree on. Juan Manuel should have a better chin than Bautista, so it should be a lot more competitive than tonight's fight. But I still like Ponce's chances of wearing him down through out the fight and stopping him in the later rounds. Juan Manuel has been passed the 8th round only once in his career and never passed the 10th.

He might last a round longer than Rey. Maybe two.
