WBO/IBF super bantamweight champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire (29-1, 18 KO’s) told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that Mexican warrior Jorge “Travieso” Arce (60-6-2, 46 KO’s) "is the guy I want to fight out of the four guys” that were mentioned as possible opponents for an October showdown at the famed Staples Center, home of the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers.

The four were Abner Mares, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Toshiaki Nishioka and Arce.

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum stated earlier this week that he is finalizing details of the eagerly awaited bout with Arce which he said “is about ninety percent sure.”

Arum told us that he wanted to do the fight at the Staples Center which is the venue he prefers but indicated “its not easy to clear a date but that’s the first choice. They are working on clearing a Saturday date for us in October.”

 Hours later Donaire who drove to his home in Ls Vegas from Los Angeles told the Standard “that’s good, he (Arce) is a tough guy and has a lot of followers and he’s out there to fight.”

Donaire who always hurts his hand during fights told us “I’ll heal my hands and go back into training camp right away.”

Donaire believe Arce’s aggressive style will give him an opportunity to showcase what he’s got and said “My speed and power will definitely be there and prove to be a big factor  in the fight.”

He described Arce as “a tough guy” and noted that he won’t have to go looking for him because the Mexican will come to him adding, “that’s what I like, exactly. I like fighters who fight like (Fernando) Montiel. If they  are strong enough, if they catch me its okay and if they are not careful its going to be a ‘goodnight fight’. It could also happen to me because I am also vulnerable to punches but I just want to make it exciting for everyone out there. I think it’s a good fight.”

Donaire won the vacant WBO super bantamweight title after Arce relinquished the belt which the Mexican won with a 12th round TKO of Wilfredo Vazquez Jr of Puerto Rico on May 7, 2011.

Arce then successfully defended the title with a 4th round  TKO over Simphiwe Nongqayi of South Africa on September 23, 2011 before he gave up the title and dropped down to the bantamweight division where he won the vacant title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Indonesia’s Angy Angkota on November 26, 2011.

Donaire faced Vazquez for the vacant WBO super bantamweight crown and won a twelve round split decision on February 4, 2012 at the Alamadome in San Antonio, Texas.

In his last fight Donaire handily won the IBF title from Jeffrey Mathebula of South Africa at the Home Depot Center in Carson City on July 7. Donaire dropped the awkward and much taller South African in the 4th round with a vicious left hook but was unable to put him away as Mathebula was saved by the bell and backpedaled from then on and refused to engage.

Arce in his last fight faced Puerto Rico’s hard-hitting Jesus Rojas in a war that lasted less than two rounds. Arce dropped Rojas with a big right hand in the opening round after which they traded bombs with the Puerto Rican getting the better of his bitter Mexican rival.

Rojas opened the second round  with a low blow and followed with several punches and although Arce was given time to recover he was unable to continue and the fight was declared a “no contest.”
