Arce on Donaire: Not Impressed, Beats Scared Fighters

By Rene Umanzor

Former four division world champion Jorge Arce (61-6-2, 46KOs) is more than ready to fight WBO/WBC Diamond super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire on December 15th in Mexico City. Arce is only asking to get paid what he deserves. Arce was the planned opponent for Donaire last weekend. He passed after not being satisfied with the money he was offered. Japanese star Toshiaki Nishioka took his place, but he was stopped in nine rounds.

Arce is not impressed with Donaire's wins. He says the opponents fight scared.

"I am ready, as everyone knows I am ready to fight and end the year with drums beating. I would be happy to take that fight but I hope I get the price [I'm asking for]. I'm not asking for the pearls of the virgin. I'm demandaning just what I think the fight is worth," Arec said.

"I'm not impressed. He is not the monster they believe he is. What happens is that [the opponents] have too much respect, they pull punches, start to survive and allow him to come on."

"I think Donaire has faced fighters who are afraid. I'm not going to have any respect."
