Arrellano On The Mend, Returns Later in 2017

Words by Raymundo Dioses


Super featherweight contender Johnathan Arrellano recently had his left knee surgically repaired, his first surgery since entering the fight game in 2009 and a surgery he says he’s needed for the past few years.

“I’m a few months away from returning back to the ring,” said Arrellano, who is spending some time recuperating at the Crossroads Boxing Gym in Ontario, California, keeping in shape for an expected return in 2017. “Lil’ Thund’r” has won two of his last three bouts via KO.

Arrellano, (17-7-2, 5KO) last fought and won via knockout in July 2016 on a Big Bern Promotions fight card in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

While recovering from surgery, is helping in an advisory role at the CRB gym with lightweight contender John Delperdang, who is preparing for an April 2017 bout in Las Vegas.

The determined young fighter is eager to get back to putting in the work that comes along with being a professional boxer.  “I’m ready to put in that work, all the time and effort, for a fight that might last 30 minutes, or 15 minutes.  I’ve lived my whole life like that, willing to put in the hard work.”
