Official highlights

  • Cosmic Moor

    And this is the best boxer in the World? Im sorry im not impressed. Very Good but struggling against a mediocre boxer. I think we saw the best 2 weeks ago and he even had to retire like the previous best pound for pound mr 49-0.

    • Mattsnow

      A record is not everything, at this category there aren’t a lot of great fighters.

    • tango2042

      Cosmic, With all my respect I’m telling you that boxing isn’t your strength. Arroyo isn’t a mediocre boxer he is really talented and surprised me because in spite of being a hard puncher, as per his current record, is technically very sound.
      Regarding “chocolatito”, to make it short, I’m not able to add more good adjectives to the ones he actually has. Currently, and analyzing all the categories, there are very few boxers that would be able to put a fight like he did tonight. To do that they need to be extraordinary boxers like he fully is.
      Watch the fight again!!

    • Mattsnow

      Arroyo had lost a 4 rounder in his debut and a championship fight. Not too shabby.

  • No10Count

    2 weeks ago?
    Please dont tell me your referring to FMJr? (as he was in the crowd of Pac Bradley) If so please go lock yourself in a room. Buying an undefeated record isnt the same as having one. (yes I said that)

    And this was a great fight.
    Arroyo is a strong fighter and a good boxer. This is what happens when 2 people who are at the top of their game meet. The difference was an A- against an A+. Though the scores were one sided it does not tell the entire story. Arroyo never gave up and kept trying.

  • Mattsnow

    A very unexpected quality brawl, Arroyo made a great name for himself. How about a rematch since there are not a ton of great fighters at this weight? Chocolatito’s KO credentials took a run for their money :)

  • tango2042

    Excellent fight that fully deserves 4 starts since both boxers make of it a real showtime. To be honest I wasn’t expecting to watch a boxer like Arroyo, with low experience as a professional, so solid and well planted in the ring in spite of losing one of his shoe soil during the bout. He moves very well and put a real fight against to a great boxer and a luminary like “chocolatito” is. I guess it was a very though fight for chocolatito who displayed, with no doubts, his art and proficiency but wasn’t able to knock down such a good boxer like Arroyo is. Congratulations for both fighters since in my opinion this was the most exciting fight, until now, of 2016. You cannot blink your eyes at unless you don’t mind to lose some piece of this art.

    • Mattsnow

      Yes it was very exciting, I’d like to know what the hell they did to remedy the shoe soil loss, I saw that too. Do you think they had a spare shoe to remedy to this? Even then that is a lot of laces to well lace in one minute. Probably we’ll know on boxing websites tomorrow :)

      • tango2042

        Matt, I saw his coach putting the tape they use for the gloves around the broken shoe since they don’t have replacement. This was too bad for him because for sure, due to this event, Arroyo lost his concentration in the fight at least for a while. I saw the fight in real time since HBO put it in the air last night. I couldn’t believe that.
