ShoBox Photos: Arroyo Tops Sanchez, Kayode Gets Past Cora

Vincent Arroyo upped his ShoBox record this year to 2-0 with a 10-round decision win over Hector Sanchez in a good main event that put the New York fighter (now 12-1, 7 KO) in line to become a real ShoBox regular and a prospect to watch. It was also a fight that didn't do anything to hurt the stock of Sanchez (19-2, 9 KO) who had been inactive for over a year but gave a strong effort in a competitive bout.

In the cruiserweight co-feature, Lateef Kayode improved to 18-0 (14 KO) with a 10-round decision win over Felix Cora Jr (22-6-2, 12 KO) in a fight that did little to raise the Wild Card Gym prospect's profile. Kayode and his team talked about this being a "graduation" from ShoBox and a final prep for a possible world title fight, but the prevailing thought from those who watched in our live thread, from those I saw on Twitter during the fight, and from Showtime's Steve Farhood and Antonio Tarver, is that Kayode is just not ready for that level -- and may never be. So in other words, Kayode may be as ready as he's going to get, but he also may have already peaked.
