The Dominican Olympic gold medalist Félix Díaz, as well as the unbeaten Patrick Cora will be in action in interesting matches, in this “A Puño Limpio.”

“We ended the year in Puerto Rico with a big show of “A Puño Limpio”, since we will have Carlos Arrieta facing an experienced rival as Peña, while we will have fights of Felix Diaz, Patrick Cora, and other good fights with known fighters and prospects that we are preparing,” said promoter Iván Rivera, president of PRBBP.

The main event of the night will be between the Trujillo Alto native Arrieta (11-0, 7 kos) and the veteran Peña (30-1, 22 kos) at 10 rounds and at 122 pounds. Arrieta comes from UD victories over experienced Argentines Ernesto Fanzolini and Martín Díaz, and Panamanian Ricardo Núñez in May, June and September, respectively. Peña’s only defeat was against former Puerto Rican world champion Jesus Rojas in 2015.

Meanwhile, the gold medalist of the 2008 Olympics, Felix Diaz (20-3, 10 kos) will fight in a 10 rounds bout at 147 pounds against an opponent to be determined. Díaz was going to fight in Puerto Rico in October, but he got sick and couldn’t do it.
