Cuadras vs. Arroyo Will Now Have WBC Silver Title at Stake

The World Boxing Council has announced that the upcoming fight between former world champion Carlos 'Príncipe' Cuadras of Mexico and Puerto Rico's McWilliams Arroyo will now have the WBC's super flyweight silver title at stake.

The HBO televised fight takes place on February 24 at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Both fighters have said that they are fully aware of the clashes between the boxers of their nations - and they promised to produce another action-filled bout for that historic rivalry.

The fight will be part of the "SUPERFLY 2" card, in which champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai from Thailand will defend his World Boxing Council super flyweight crown in the main event against mandatory challenger Francisco 'Gallo' Estrada, from Mexico.

Defending his WBC Super Flyweight World Title, Cuadras made his HBO and Los Angeles area debut on September 10, 2016 at the Forum in a memorable 12-round war with then three-division world champion Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez.

With boxing fans on their feet throughout the battle waving Mexican and Nicaraguan flags, Cuadras and Gonzalez would clash in an epic 12-round battle that echoed the historical fights that have been held at the iconic venue over the last 43 years. Coming up just short on the scorecards, Cuadras has vowed to regain his belt in 2018.

The 29-year-old Cuadras successfully bounced back into the win column on March 18, 2017 at Madison Square Garden with a 10-round unanimous decision over David Carmona on the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard of the World Middleweight Championship between Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs.

Most recently, Cuadras and fellow Mexican warrior and former flyweight world champion Juan Francisco Estrada had the packed house on their feet at the StubHub Center on September 9 during their extraordinary 12-round battle won by Estrada at the initial SUPERFLY event.

Arroyo first challenged for the world title traveling to Thailand in 2014 where he lost a highly controversial split decision to Amnat Ruenroeng for the IBF World Flyweight Title.

Returning to Puerto Rico, Arroyo would stop Victor Ruiz in the third round on April 11, 2015 in San Juan. Back in the win column, Arroyo challenged ‘Chocolatito’ for the WBC Flyweight World Title on April 23, 2016 at the Forum losing to the then #1 Pound-for-Pound Fighter.

Another participation trophy masked as a title.

This is not even worth mentioning, the mandatory position to the real world title ( WBC Superfly ) kinda ruins or defeats the purpose of being a minor titlist doesn't it?
