Former Top 10 Heavyweight in the World and Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Andrei "The Pitbull" Arlovski agreed to fight 31-5 (Boxing record) Fres Oquendo in exhibition bout in Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Hotel and Resort on Saturday, February 27th.

The fight will be a 4-rounder, and it looks like Arlovski, who planned to make his Professional Boxing debut a long time ago is happy with an opportunity to test his skills: "I am honored to step into the ring with a great fighter like Fres Oquendo. This is going to be an exciting exhibition match but we already know the winner: the children we are helping"

Fres Oquendo, who well-known for his fights against Evander Holyfield and James Toney, is also happy to test his striking against "one of Mixed Martial Arts' best":

"I have seen Arlovski in the ring and in the cage and I am excited to be able to showcase my skills against an MMA legend. Believe me; we are going to go at it for four rounds with the goal that every punch and every blow helps this cause."

Oquendo - Arlovski fight will be an interesting experiment between Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts. Andrei Arlovski will enjoy an experience from training with a famous Boxing coach Freddie Roach for his fight against Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction: Day of Reckoning.

    His chin is weak but his boxing is excellent. This isn't boxing vs mma since he can't use other mma skills, it's 100% boxing.
