Vazquez has nothing to look for in boxing, and I'm from PR. Arellano has like 3 kos in his record and almost knock the ***** out of Wilfredo. Really close fight, WV2 is not championship material.

Not sure where Vazquez goes from here, he has lost whatever he was supposed to have before the Arce fight.
