It seems Jorge Arce's retirement was short-lived.

The Mexican all-action fighter will reportedly return to the ring against Akifumi Shimoda on September 21, according to Corey Erdman of RingTV and Fight Network.

Arce (61-7-2, 46 KOs) was last seen in the squared circle in December, when he was knocked flat by Nonito Donaire on HBO.

Shimoda (27-3-2, 12 KOs) of Japan was the WBA's 122-pound titleholder, but lost it by knockout in a 2011 fight against Rico Ramos. He's coming off a 10-round majority draw versus Roli Gasca in April.

it's the competition & the crowds roar that keeps him returning...he should win this, won't make him better, but 95% of the time he's a fans fighter, no mention the local, but in MX, there's times fighters don't know where the fight is till the week of the bout...

Damn, I thought Arce retired?

This is a good fight.

[QUOTE=Jaliscoguey13]He should fight that guy Rojas that hit him in the "ear".[/QUOTE] He is just looking for some quick cash, not a beating.

He'll fight a former champ and think he'll be back in title contention
