After impressing greatly on the undercard of the Pacquaio-Mosley fight and almost stealing the show from the main event, Jorge Arce has put himself right in the mix to take on boxing’s most promising fighter in Nonito Donaire.

Arce beat the previously unbeaten Wilfredo Vasquez by TKO in the final round to claim the WBO super bantamweight championship to become a two weight world champion, having previously held the WBO super fly-weight title. A fight with Nonito Donaire would be the pinnacle of a long and distinguished career.
Donaire is currently the WBO/WBC bantamweight champion and the hottest property in boxing.

Both fighters have great knockout power with Donaire having knocked out 18 of 26 opponents and Arce having beaten 44 of 57 by knockout so it should be an explosive bout. Both are crowd pleasers and Arce has the typical Mexican warrior mentality constantly on the attack with little or no defence whilst Donaire resembles his idol and fellow countryman Manny Pacquaio, boasting ferocious hand speed and power to boot.

Donaire is the younger man at 28 while Arce is 31 and although this would be the toughest test of his career, he should come through to move on to even bigger things. Hopefully this fight can be made as it would draw a huge crowd and could even be a fight of the year contender if they both come to the ring showing recent form.
