Arroyo vs Saludar weigh-in

Arroyo vs Saludar weigh-in

Today, Wednesday June 18, 1:00 PM (AT) is the weigh in for the fight between undefeated Filipino flyweight contender Froilan 'The Sniper' Saludar and Puerto Rican Olympian McWilliams Arroyo.

Saludar, age 25, undefeated in 19 fights, will face Arroyo for the IBF title eliminator on Thursday, June 19 at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez that will be telecast starting 8:00 PM by Fox Sports 1 & Fox Deportes.

According to report it seemed that Saludar will have no problem making the flyweight limit at 112 pounds. This could be a sizzling bout. Saludar has power in both hands. He stopped 12 of his opponents in his 19 professional fights. Out of those 12 stoppages, seven happened in Round 1.

Arroyo, on the other end is sporting 14 victories with only one defeat. His lone defeat is by UD against Takashi Okada. He also stopped 12 opponents---a stunning 80 percent KO percentage.

We are rest assured that both men really packed power on their fists. The questions here are: Who has the better chin? Who will land first the game changing blow?
