For Juan Manuel ‘Juanma’ López, the time to hang up the gloves has arrived. After 15 years in the paid ranks of boxing, the Puerto Rican boxer who won world championships at 122 and 126 pounds, has reiterated that he will not go back into a ring to fight again.
“I’m not going to put on the gloves anymore,” says López to Carlos Gonzalez. “I am not the same as I was before. The time has come to take care of my health, be with my family and watch over my children.”
