John Scully (Donaire): "Donaire in a very well-contest split decision over Arce. Maybe it is wishful thinking with Arce. I really like him and hope he can fight to full potential and make it a competitive 12."

Sam Garcia (Donaire): "Donaire within four rounds. I think Donaire is one of the best, most talented fighters in the world in any weight class. Theres no way this Arce at this weight class is in the same league. Yeah, Arce has done some great things in his career. Obviously hes a bit long in the tooth. Arces not too hard to find. Hes a warrior. Hes a tough guy. But theres no way hes going to be able to handle the power of Donaire."

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (Donaire): "I love Donaire. Great fighter. He brings his own judges to the fight: the left hook and right hand. He brings his own judges to the fight, and theyre not going to rob him. He takes it right into his own hands and knocks the other guy cold. Hes going to be a great fighter, if hes not already.

"Arce is going to walk right into the punch. Arces going to get knocked out, probably in about five rounds, tops. Arces going to be cautious for a minute, and then hes going to try to get brave. The fights in Texas. A lot of Latin people are going to soup him up, and hes going to come in there and try to take the kid out. But man, this kid can punch, and hes quick."

Ronnie Shields (Donaire): "I see Donaire by maybe a third or fourth round knockout. Hes so strong. He can punch at that weight. Hes just one of the best fighters in the world right now. Hes got everything. Hes got a jab, hes got a right hand, hes got power, hes got combinations. And the most important thing is hes been active this year. This is I think his fourth fight this year. You cant beat that. Youre supposed to stay busy. Thats what boxing is about. I like Arce; hes a really good fighter, but hes just coming to the end of his career."

I think Donaire stops Arce in 10

I can't see Arce with the upset, but if he's able to last the full 12 that's one hell of an accomplishment and a testament to how tough the ****er is. Most likely, though, he gets stopped at some point. My guess is Donaire makes him look old and gets him out of there.
