McJoe Arroyo-Johnreil Casimero Scrap on December 18

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Former IBF junior flyweight champion Johnreil Casimero is scheduled to battle Puerto Rico’s unbeaten Mc Joe Arroyo in Las Vegas on December 18.

Promoter Sammy Gello-ani told the New Standard/BoxingScene.com that Casimero who has been training very hard in Las Vegas under veteran mentor Jhun Agrabio decided to move up in weight after having problems making the flyweight limit.

Gello-ani said Casimero who had grown into a fully-fledged 115 pound fighter was in good shape and the promoter believes he has a good chance of dethroning the 29 year old McJoe Arroyo who has a record of 17-0 with 8 knockouts.

Arroyo is coming off a controversial tenth round technical decision over King Arthur Villanueva for the vacant IBF title in El Paso, Texas on July 18.

Casimero was originally scheduled to face McJoe Arroyo’s twin  brother McWilliams Arroyo but they decided to move up in weight and face McJoe Arroyo for his 115 pound title.

Casimero is coming off a hugely controversial loss to Thailand’s IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng on June 27 in a foul-infested, poorly refereed fight by Larry Doggett who came under bitter criticism for his handling of the title fight and was subsequently dropped from the roster of referees.

Casimero is four years younger than McJoe Arroyo and has a record of 21-3 with 13 knockouts.
