Luis Nery: I'm Going To Knock McJoe Arroyo Out in Six Rounds!

Former WBC bantamweight champion Luis Nery makes a fresh start on Saturday night, when he makes his debut under the Premier Boxing Champions banner.

Nery (28-0, 22 KOs) is looking to get back to his world title, after losing the belt on the scale when failing to make weight for his rematch with Shinsuke Yamanaka in March of last year.

Nery will face tough Puerto Rican contender McJoe Arroyo (18-2, 8 KOs), who has never been stopped and lost two decisions to former world champion Rau'Shee Warren and current champion Jerwin Ancajas.

The fight takes place as part of the Fox Sports Pay-Per-View undercard, to the welterweight clash between Errol Spence and Mikey Garcia.

The event will go down at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

While Arroyo has never been stopped as a pro, Nery believes that he will take him out within six rounds. He doesn't expect Arroyo to withstand his power punches for more than a handful of rounds.

And there is plenty of pride at stake, with the Puerto Rico vs. Mexico rivalry.

"I want to thank everyone for making this possible. I have a tough opponent who comes to fight and I'm going to be at my very best on Saturday. I'm going to show everyone that I'm a stronger fighter than ever. I'm faster too and better than I've ever been heading into a fight," Nery said.
"I'm ready to prove why I'm the best bantamweight in the world. Saturday is going to be a statement to all the other fighters. I prepared very well for this fight and I'm very motivated. I'm going to knock Arroyo out in six rounds or less. I know what I can bring and he won't be able to sustain it.
"Fans are going to see a great fight. We're continuing the Mexico vs. Puerto Rico rivalry and we're going to give everybody a war."
