Probably because they couldn’t get any top lightweights to face him, Golden Boy has their 26-year-old southpaw Zepeda fight 130-pounder Arboleda. Arboleda is a strong puncher but is not renowned for throwing a lot of shots every bout, so Zepeda’s high work rate will likely be too much for him. In 2020, round eleven was when Chris Colbert finally knocked out Arboleda. In 2017, Arboleda was knocked out again, this time by the hands of the journeyman Recky Dulay (11-9, 8 KOs).

Jayson Velez, Jonathan Victor Barros, and Victor Betancourt Jr. are three of Arboleda’s most notable opponents. Promoters’ reluctance to risk their top 135-pounders against Zepeda’s punching power is understandable. Recent reports indicated that Shakur Stevenson was interested in taking on Zepeda, but Golden Boy ultimately decided against making the fight for obvious reasons.
