By Rey Colon

"We sparred on several occasions and we know each other quite well. It's a tough fight and it will be a good night of boxing. I recommend that you go on April 1 to Caguas and enjoy," he said.

Arroyo said that if he's successful in this fight, he will return on May 6 in the Pedrin Zorrilla. It his understanding that by the end of the year, or early in 2012, he will be looking for a world title.

If he plans to make noise in the division and fight for a title by years end or early '12, he needs to fight a ranked contender not someone 4-2.
