McWilliams Arroyo trains in Thailand



The International Boxing Federation (IBF) #1 ranked in the flyweights, McWilliams Arroyo trained today for the media in Bangkok as part of his work for his fight against The IBF 112 pounds champion Amnat Ruenroeng (13-0, 5 KOs) on September 10, at the Liptapanlop Hall in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

Arroyo (15-1, 13 KOs), a 2008 Olympian from Puerto Rico, worked some rounds of shadows, mitts with his trainer Anthony Otero, the punching bag, and jumped the rope in front of the Thai media.

“I feel very good. Today we worked hard, have not lowered the intensity, I’m near the weight and I did not stop eating,” said a confident Arroyo. “I feel strong, no issues with the 11 hours difference, I have been treated very well here. I am quite positive that I will win that championship to Puerto Rico.”

With Arroyo in Thailand, plus Otero, are his mother Milagros Acevedo, his manager Orlando Piñero and promoter Peter Rivera, PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP) Vice-President.

“McWilliams is in excellent physical and mental condition. He is a fighter with a lot of international experience and that has been a major factor for this fight. We are confident in his victory,” Rivera said.

Arroyo, a 2009 Amateur World Champion, will face another 2008 Olympian and Amateur World Championship medalist in Ruenroeng (13-0, 5 KOs), who is the IBF champion since January, 2014, when he beat Rocky Fuentes.
