In California, on the undercard of Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs Juan Francisco Estrada, as part of 'Superfly 2', former world champion, Carlos Cuadras takes on former world title challenger, McWilliams Arroyo.

Cuadras is a heavy favourite, as the younger fighter, assumed the more suited to the weight, and the fighter with the higher achieving past.

The fight begins very competitively, as Arroyo moves well, without being bullied by Cuadras, but Cuadras, having plenty of success of his own in the early rounds.

As the minutes go by, people are surprised, Cuadras is made to look old, clumsy, as a confident, controlled Arroyo seems to pick up the points, have the more speed, method, and a lot more snap behind his punches.

Late, Cuadras, likely to have been told to be his trainer, Abel Sanchez, tries his best to rally, he has success, but for the majority of the closing 9-12 minutes, Arroyo is the one who has the better of the exchanges.

Arroyo is confident, Cuadras seems dejected, it seems Arroyo has boxed extremely well, and should be declared the winner.

Fernando Villareal, surprisingly declares the fight level, whilst Tony Crebs declares Arroyo a winner by a comfortable margin, and Pat Russell scores the Puerto Rican the winner by a landslide. Arroyo shocks Cuadras with a fantastic victory, by majority decision, leaving Cuadras, disappointed, and with his career remainder in question, and for Arroyo, likely to be close to a world title opportunity.

Prediction,

I like this match up, both these only lose to great fighters, and even when they lose, they make it competitive.

Both these guys have been at world level in their careers, but I think Cuadras has done a lot more with his career, and he has also been a world champion before, Arroyo came close, but didn't quite manage to win a title.

I think Cuadras will win this fight, and win it easily.

Arroyo is very good, he can punch, he has talent, he can fight, he has skill too, but for many reasons, I think he will be completely outclassed in this fight.
Cuadras is 3 years the younger fighter, and at 115, 29-32 are a bad set of 3 years to age.
Not only does Cuadras have youth on his side, but he also has weight on his side, he is a proper 115 lb fighter, Arroyo is I think really a flyweight, he hasn't competed above 112 since 2011.
Cuadras seems to be fighting twice a year, which is the right level of frequency, while Arroyo last fought early in 2016, so he is coming back from a near to 2 years' break.
Cuadras was the WBC champion at 115 for a while, I think defended about 7 times.

I think this might be a competitive shutout, or possibly so competitive that he has to take a round or two.
I think Arroyo might have some good success in the mid rounds, and throughout, he will try his best, his chin, ability to soak up punishment, and the less than devastating power of his opponent, making him able to make it an action packed fight, but early, his ring rust, lack of speed at this weight will be problematic, and late, I think he will fade. Arroyo is a big puncher, probably the bigger natural puncher than Cuadras, but Cuadras has a a fair amount of power, and his work rate, high output is an attribute which somewhat compensates for any power he doesn't have, and Arroyo might not have the power at 115, which he had at 112.

I wouldn't be surprised if Cuadras, with relentless volume, manages to stop Arroyo, but I think Arroyo will soak up the punches. I think the output of Cuadras will be one of the key aspects of this fight, and Arroyo will take such a high amount of hard shots, in every single round, he will be outgunned from first bell to last. I think Cuadras wins absolute landslide of a UD.

Not another one!, good thing I'm not a betting man! I'd be out of pocket!
Great win for Arroyo! Disappointed for Cuadras, but he tried, sometimes you are just beaten by the better fighter on the night, absolutely no shame in that.

I think Arroyo deserves an opportunity to fight for a world title later in the year.

Watching on HBO Now, should be very good as most Cuadras fights are.
