Arce vs Vazquez a Draw at The Time of The Stoppage

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Former champion Jorge Arce continued Mexico's run over Puerto Rico, when he recovered from a fourth round knockdown and came back to stop previously undefeated Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. in the twelfth round to capture the WBO super bantamweight title.
