Former Olympian McJoe Arroyo, from Puerto Rico, will travel to Mexico to face former world champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez in an International Boxing Federation (IBF) super flyweight (115 pounds) elimination bout, to be held on June 14 in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico, in a Promociones Zanfer presentation in association with PR Best Boxing Promotions (PRBBP).

The Arroyo-Marquez, a 12 round clash, will be the co-feature of a show that will have on the main event five-time former world champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce fighting against an opponent to be determined in the featherweight division scheduled to 10 rounds.

“McJoe has this big opportunity to be placed closer to a world title fight on June 14 when he takes on Tyson Marquez. McJoe looked good against David Quijano in April and he is in great shape to continue on the winning path and become in a world champion”, Peter Rivera, PRBBP Vice-President, said. “Both fighters (Arroyo and Marquez) are ranked in the main entities, but now we have this IBF eliminator, in which the winner will challenge for the 115 pounds title after this bout”.

McJoe Arroyo (14-0, 7 KOs), who returned from a one-year inactivity with an unanimous decision win over former world title challenger David Quijano last April 28, is the IBF #10 and  World Boxing Organization (WBO) #12 ranked actually. Arroyo was member of the 2008 Olympic Puerto Rico team and won bronze medals at the 2006 Central American and Caribbean Games in Colombia and at the 2007 World Amateur Boxing Championship in Chicago.

Meanwhile, Tyson Marquez (37-4, 26 KOs) is a former World Boxing Association (WBA) flyweight (112 pounds) champion, who is coming off an unanimous decision win last April 26 over Filipino John Mark Apolinario. Marquez is ranked ninth by the IBF in the super flyweight division, also seventh by the WBA and 11 by the WBO in the flyweights.

The IBF super flyweight title is vacant right now.
