Vincent Arroyo defeats Willie Nelson

Welterweight Vincent Arroyo (11-1) of Williamsville scored his biggest professional boxing win Friday night as he won a majority decision over previous unbeaten Willie Nelson (16-1-1) of Ohio. The scores in the eight-round contest were  75-73, 75-73 and 74-74. Vincent was deducted a point by the referee for a dubious holding call in the third round but he got the point back and then some with a terrific left hook that downed Nelson. Nelson had a distinctive seven inch height advantage and that helped him win some rounds leading into the sixth. Another left hook dropped Nelson in the sixth and a right hand floored Nelson in the seventh. Arroyo lost the last round but had secured enough points from the knockdowns for the win. Vincent trains at the Buffalo PAL gym on West Ferry St. with Rick Diaz and Hector Alejandro and is managed by Steve Nelson of Rochester.
