Mikey Garcia will put his minor WBO featherweight title on the line against Juan Manuel Lopez on June 15 in Dallas. The bout at American Airlines Center will be the first for Garcia since taking the crown from Orlando Salido on a unanimous decision in New York in January. Garcia is 31-0 with 26 knockouts. Both of Lopez's professional losses have been to Salido in the past two years. The most recent was in March 2012, and he was suspended for a year by Puerto Rican boxing authorities for accusing the referee who stopped the fight of betting on the match. Lopez (33-2, 30 KO) returned from the ban in February and stopped Aldimar Silva Santos in the ninth round.
