Freddie Roach talked to MMA Fanhouse about Andrei Arlovski's boxing debut:

Golden Boy Promotions has signed Arlovski for a six-round fight on its June 27 show. No opponent has been determined.

"Andrei is going to be aggressive, using his strength and his reach advantage and his height," Roach said. "He's going to be aggressive and looking for a knockout."

"He spars with the best guys I can get for him over here and he holds his own with them.. I'd like to see him after his first pro fight and I think we'll have a better outlook for him at that point."

"He likes to box so much more than MMA... He likes the stand-up game. If boxing takes off for him I think he'll stay, but obviously if he gets a world title fight in MMA he probably would not turn that down."

Andrei Arlovski's fight will be in the undercard of Golden Boy Promotion's June 27 card featuring Chris John vs. Rocky Juarez for the WBA featherweight title. The fight might not be able to make it to the televised portion of the card.
