Jorge Arce Hopes Rojas Comes Prepared For a War

By Miguel Rivera

WBO bantamweight champion Jorge 'Travieso' Arce (60-6-2, 46KOs) wants to steal the show from Saturday's main event between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley, taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Arce will face Puerto Rico's Jesus Manuel Rojas (18-1-1, 13KOs).

Arce stole the show on Pacquiao's card last May, when the Filipino boxer won a twelve round decision over Shane Mosley. On that undercard, Arce came from behind to score twelfth round knockout over unbeaten WBO super bantamweight champ Wilfredo Vazquez Jr.

"Do not worry, I am always ready for war, for a big fight. I'm very motivated and I am very excited because I'm going to support a Manny Pacquiao card. I know Pacquiao's fights are watched all over the world and that motivates me. I am ready to go twelve rounds, I'm ready for a big fight," Arce said. "If Rojas comes very well prepared, we're definitely going to steal the show, but if he isn't ready - we'll go to dinner early."

Key, Rojas is a very solid fighter. He is a warrior and fight like mexicans. He can give i and he can take it. Very dangerous opponent for Arce.
