Puerto Rican veteran McWilliams Arroyo (21-4, 16 KO’s) overpowered late-sub Mexican challenger Abraham “Choko” Rodriguez (27-3, 13 KO’s) in five chapters to claim the vacant WBC Flyweight Interim Title Saturday night (Feb 27) at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, USA.

The brave Mexican from Tijuana (on the left) is a 105-pounder who came up at the last minute to 112 lbs for this fight but could not handle the stronger man.

McWilliams Arroyo, 35, from the Miguel Cotto Stable wants to fight WBC regular 112-lbs titlist Julio Cesar Martinez next.

The clash was the co-main event for the Canelo vs Yildirim WBC super-middleweight war.
