Fuentes is ranked No.2 by the WBC, No. 3 by the WBA, No. 5 by the IBF and No. 7 by the WBO.
The 28 year old Arroyo who has a record of 14-1 with 12 knockouts is coming off a 4th round TKO of Miguel Tamayo last February 2, 2013 following a 5th round TKO when he won the WBO title in a battle with Ronald Ramos on September 27, 2012.
