Mandatory challenger for the World Boxing Council flyweight title Puerto Rican McWilliams Arroyo, will challenge Mexican champion Julio Cesar “Rey” Martínez on February 27 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
Martínez and Arroyo were scheduled to clash last year, but due to the champion becoming ill, the fight was postponed.
“I feel very motivated because finally the fight is going to take place and I know that fans will enjoy it to the fullest. We want to return with the world title to my place, so we have been working extra hard to arrive in excellent shape to the fight,” said Arroyo, who trains with Anthony Otero.
“Julio Cesar Martínez is a good champion, being very strong and with great qualities. He has already defended his title successfully, but now it is my turn to do everything possible to bring the championship back to Puerto Rico. We are going to fulfill the dream of winning the WBC Green and Gold Belt.”
McWilliams is no slouch. He has great victories against Carlos Cuadras and Carlos Buitrago as well as outstanding performances against Kazuto Ioka and Román “Chocolatito” González.
