UNDEFEATED Froilan Saludar is a win away from a world title shot as he takes on former Olympian McWilliams Arroyo in an International Boxing Federation (IBF) flyweight title eliminator today in Puerto Rico.

After a long wait and being in the flyweight world rankings for years, Saludar finally gets his golden opportunity for a guaranteed title shot.

The winner of this eliminator becomes the mandatory challenger of current IBF flyweight king Amnat Ruenroeng, who is off a split decision win over former world champion Kazuto Ioka.

The 25-year-old Saludar tipped the scales at 111.3 pounds, while Arroyo weighed-in at exactly the 112-pound limit.
