Donaire vs. Arce Clash is The Next Target For The Fall

By Rick Reeno

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is targeting a fall super bantamweight collision between WBO/WBC Diamond champion Nonito Donaire (30-1, 19KOs) and Mexican superstar Jorge Arce (61-6-2, 46KOs).

Donaire, who on Saturday night stopped Japanese veteran Toshiaki Nishioka in nine rounds, injured his left hand in the contest. Depending on the severity of Donaire's injury, Arum wants to make a fall match between Donaire and Arce.

"If the left hand is okay, then I will try to have him fight again before the end of the year, in Mexico, at that new arena in Mexico City - against Arce," Arum said.

Arce was Donaire's original opponent for Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California - but he overpriced himself during the negotiations and was later replaced by Nishioka.

Arce was looking to return in late November, but also mentioned a date of December 15th. If Arce-Donaire were to land on an HBO televised date of December 15, it would mean Top Rank was scrapping their show at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida. WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley was scheduled to headline the Miami card, but he recently revealed that he plans to sit out until 2013 for a bigger opportunity.

The lengths people go to justify Donaire never fighting Rigondeaux is insane. This is a ehhhh fight. Arce hasn't had a decent win since Vazquez Jr a year and a half ago. Arce should be fighting someone like Darchinyan, Agbeko,…

[QUOTE=!! Shawn;12604928]With the exception of Harrison, they all had decent career. Jirov was THE man at his weight. Not sure why you included him on that list? He had a very good career.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=garfios;12605011]David Reid, Mark Breland, Frank Tate, Tyrell…

[QUOTE=periks19;12605887]and most importantly chin. Look at khan granted he still is a solid champion that i always question his move to roach as roach is not a good defensive trainer. Anyways imagine if khan had the chin of chavez, and…
