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.

With his clear unanimous decision victory over Mike Alvarado this past weekend, Mexico City’s Juan Manuel Marquez showed that his fighting spirit is still very much up to par.

With the win, the 56th of his illustrious career, Marquez also paved the way for the possibility of facing off with his rival Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time later this year.

Marquez laid Pacquiao out for the count in their fourth encounter in December of 2012 and while he has seemed disinterested in another showdown with Manny, the intrigue of a fifth world title is still there.
