Julio Cesar Martinez Pumped By Mexico-Puerto Rico Battle With Arroyo

The flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Julio Cesar Martinez, is very focused on his upcoming ring return on August 15 in Oklahoma.

Martinez will defend his title against Puerto Rican veteran McWilliams Arroyo, with the goal of generating buzz internationally and making Mexico proud of his achievement.

Martinez ruled out that Arroyo's experience, as well as the obstacles posed by the coronavirus contingency, are going to be an issue with his return to the ring.

"It gives me great pleasure to go out and represent my country. Now Puerto Rico is going against Mexico, I am very excited, and I am sure I will not disappoint them," Martínez said to ESPN Deportes.

"I have faced strong opponents like [Arroyo].... Charlie Edwards, Andrew Selby, Cristofer Rosales. I have respect for all of them, but nothing will stop me."

Martínez accepted that when the contingency began he had to deviate a little from his activities, but then he found a way to work in free spaces with his coach Mauricio Aceves.

"We reach 1,000 percent for each of our fights and against Arroyo it will be the same, and my coach has already made a working plan and we will follow it, and we only hope that Eddy Reynoso will tell us when we have to travel. But the truth is that we are street dogs and we adapt to everything, we have no problems," Martinez said.

To come out with a hand up in this event, Martínez and his team would seek to unify world titles in the flyweight division against Artem Dalakian or Moruti Mthalane. However, everything will depend on the availability of the champions and the plans that both Eddy Reynoso and Eddie Hearn, also a co-promoter of Julio Cesar, have for him.
