On Saturday night, Feb 24, Puerto Rican McWilliams Arroyo pulled off an impressive upset in defeating former world champion Carlos Cuadras over 10 rounds inside of the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. Aired on HBO as part of the “Superfly 2″ telecast, Arroyo showed great poise, boxing acumen, and the ability to adjust in his match with Cuadras, whose only two losses prior were to Roman ‘Chocolatito’  Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada.

Cuadras (36-3-1, 27 KO’s), who trained with Abel Sanchez inside of the Summit Gym, started off strong, yet Arroyo (17-3, 14 KO’s) stayed calm and began to pick his shots and turn the fight in his favor. After 10 rounds, scores of 98-92, 97-93, and 95-95 were read in Arroy’s favor, who picked up the vacant WBC super flyweight title with his win.

On Saturday night, Feb. 17, former two-division world champion Danny Garcia returned to the ring to score an emphatic 9th round TKO over former lightweight champion Brandon Rios. The bout took place inside of the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nev. on SHOWTIME’s airwaves and it was a contest that was far better than many expected, as Rios gave a great account of himself prior to the stoppage.

But where does Garcia (34-1, 20 KO’s) go from here? There are a lot of interesting names at 147 pounds, including IBF champion Errol Spence Jr., WBA/WBC champion Keith Thurman, WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn, former lineal junior welterweight champion Terence Crawford, former IBF champion Shawn Porter, and emerging contender Yordenis Ugas, amongst others.

It was just a month ago when I crossed paths for the first time with aspiring amateur prospect Devaughn Lucas. Fighting out of Texas, Lucas is ranked #1 in the country at 125 pounds and I was able to catch him in action inside of Johnny Tocco’s Ringside Gym during their monthly First Friday Exhibition Sparring series.

Lucas is very strong physically and also very much poised for his age. He went some rounds with fellow amateurs Jacob Cuevas and Cesar “Frijolito” Cardona and the action was fast-paced. Lucas seems right at home when he is on the inside banging away at his opponents, but when noticing his style further, there are a lot of unique movements that he makes.
