Arreola pulls out of June 23 Showtime card
Chris Arreola has pulled out of his bout against Mike Mollo on the Victor Ortiz-Josesito Lopez undercard on June 23.
Chris Arreola has pulled out of his scheduled 10-round bout against Mike Mollo on the Victor Ortiz-Josesito Lopez undercard on June 23, sources close to the heavyweight contender have confirmed to RingTV.com.
Ernest Gabion of Boxingscene.com broke the news of Arreola's withdraw, and hinted that it was due to a training injury. However, a source close to the Riverside, Calif.-based slugger told RingTV.com that Arreola has not suffered a legitimate injury.
Whatever the case, it looks like Arreola will not be a part of the Showtime-televised card, which also features Lucas Matthysse vs. Humberto Soto, from Staples Center in Los Angeles.
