Arce on Donaire: He Never Faced Anyone With Guts, Heart
By Rene Umanzor
Jorge 'Travieso' Arce (61-6-2, 46KOs) plans to shock the world when he takes on WBO/WBC Diamond super bantamweight champion Nonito 'Flash' Donaire (30-1, 19KOs) on December 15th in Houston, Texas.
The former four division champion is not impressed with Donaire's record or his recent string of wins, stating that he never faced someone who was willing to make it a real fight.
"He has never faced a fighter of my qualities. He has never faced anybody with guts, heart. Knock me down and I get up, I have never given up and have no respect for him," Arce said.
"In boxing there is no logic. When I fought 'Papito' Vazquez they said [I would lose] and I won by knockout. When I faced Yo-Sam Choi in Korea they said the same thing, and also with Hussein-Hussein."
If Donaire beats him, Arce might retire. His decision to retire will depend on the way he loses.
"There are [different] ways to lose. I get beat overwhelmingly, then I would think that I would have nothing to do in boxing and I would retire permanently. But if I lose with dignity or get robbed, then I will continue in the sport."
Guts and heart? Gtfoh arceComment by PD21 on 10-29-2012
Based on his last fight Arce shouldnt be making comments like this. The beating I expect Donaire to put on Arce would only end in two ways - A clean KO win for Nonito or Arce quitting.Comment by ddangerous on 10-29-2012
