World Boxing Council flyweight champion Julio César Martínez, plans to return to the ring on August 15 at a venue to be announced.
His likely rival will be the tough Puerto Rican fighter McWilliams Arroyo (24-4-0, 15), ranked world number 1 by the WBC.
“They changed the rival that we had been told but we will make a great training camp. Arroyo is a good boxer. There is no easy rival. We are going for the victory,” said “Rey” Martínez.
Arroyo will be a difficult rival for Julio, since in addition to having ample experience, he has a victory over former Mexican world champion Carlos Cuadras, plus fights against champions Román “Chocolatito” González and Kazuto Ioka.
