Arce Expects To Face Donaire on 12/15 in Houston, Texas

By Miguel Rivera

Sources close to former four division world champion Jorge Arce (61-6-2, 46KOs) have told BoxingScene.com that "Travieso" is still on target to fight WBO/WBC Diamond super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (30-1, 19KOs) on December 15th, but now in Houston, Texas. They believe the fight will take place at the Toyota Center and HBO will televise in the United States.

Originally, Zanfer Promotions and Top Rank were discussing the option of staging the match in Mexico City. Donaire rejected the Mexico City proposal, feeling the terms were not financially adequate for a champion to fight the challenger in his home country.

WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux and light heavyweight Mike Lee are expected to appear on the undercard.

[QUOTE=Rolph Spicer;12643781]Because the rigondeaux vs. ramos world title fight only sold 375 tickets, which is pathetic. ESPN cards do more than that.[/QUOTE] And you act like donaire sells a lot of tickets and gets a million viewers on hbo
