The double Panamanian world classified Jaime Arboleda does not trust himself for his lawsuit this Friday, January 14, when he faces the Dominican Nicolás Polanco. Arboleda heads the boxing function ‘Box & Roll’ that will be hosted by the Vasco Núñez de Balboa convention center at the El Panamá hotel and which is organized by the companies Sampson Boxing and Best Box.
“I know very little about the rival, but they have a good record. He has 20 fights won, one draw and one loss and it was against former world champion Javier Fortuna, so it’s not an easy fight. I have to go out from the beginning to do the work ”, stated Arboleda in the promotional press conference of the event.
Arboleda will seek to consolidate in the world rankings when he disputes the Silver Latino lightweight championship of the World Boxing Council (WBC) in his lawsuit against Polanco.

“My promoters want to have several options for a world championship and if we win this fight we will also have options in the WBC,” said Arboleda, 27.
In the co-main event, the Argentine Hugo Alberto Roldán will face the Colombian Germán Del Castillo for the Latin Silver Superlight Championship at 10 rounds.
Roldán is undefeated in 20 fights, with one draw, while Del Castillo Muñoz has a record of 10 wins, one loss, two draws and 7 knockouts.
