Joaquin Buckley gets back into the win column

The fight started off with both men coming forward and engaging right away. It was evident that Arroyo was tentative with his offense, as he did not want to be caught by Buckley’s right hand. Despite that, Arroyo went toe-to-toe with Buckley for the best part of three rounds and held his own. 

The finishing sequence saw ‘New Mansa’ land a vicious right hand, followed by a right uppercut. The combination immediately dropped Arroyo to the ground. Buckley immediately pounced on his opponent to land a few strikes while he was on the ground. And that was the end of the fight.
