McWilliams Arroyo Stops Rigoberto Casilas in Seven
By Jake Donovan
While nearly all eyes were on the action taking place in Las Vegas, the folks at Telefutura managed to sneak in a live edition of "Solo Boxeo."
Flyweight prospect McWilliams Arroyo was forever grateful for the opportunity, looking impressive in scoring a seventh round stoppage of Rigoberto Casilas in their headliner Saturday evening in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
Arroyo dominated the mismatch from the opening bell to its emphatic ending, scoring two knockdowns in the seventh round. The fight was mercifully stopped moments after the second knockdown, when it was deemed that Casilas was in no shape to continue.
The official time was 2:00 of round seven.
Arroyo - one-half of a brother act who served on the 2008 Puerto Rico Olympic boxing squad - improves to 12-1 (10KO). Casilas falls to 8-7-1 (6KO).
Not quite as fortunate was his twin brother McJoe Arroyo, who was scheduled to appear in the televised co-feature. The bout was scrapped by the Puerto Rico boxing commission at the 11th hour after opponent Miguel del Valle was deemed unfit after medical review of a black eye he sported heading into the fight.
John Karl Sosa TKO4 Bryan Montalvo (Montalvo failed to answer the bell for round four)
Jose Aguirre UD4 Harry Perez (40-36, 3x)
Moises Rios SD4 William Lorenzo (39-37 Rios twice, 39-37 Lorenzo)
Pedro Vicente UD4 Jonathan Melendez (40-36 3x)
Jonathan Garcia TKO3 Jesse Montalvo (1:38 of round three - corner stoppage)
Jonel Nieves UD4 Milton Lopez (40-36 2x, 39-37)
