McWilliams Arroyo-Felipe Rivas on March 18 or March 24
By Rey Colon
McWilliams Arroyo, the 2008 Olympic champion, could return to action on March 18 or March 24 against Mexico's Felipe Rivas, who lost a split decision to former double world champion Ivan Calderon in October.
"That's the opponent who I'll be fighting and it would be for ten rounds. He was going to fight me on the 21st of February but the fight fell out. He was the last opponent of Calderon and we all know he comes to make a war but I'm going to command respect. It will be a great fight," said the fighter with a record of 10-1 with nine knockouts.
Arroyo is expected, along with his twin brother McJoe, to fight for a world title in the last quarter of 2012.
