Jorge Arce-Lorenzo Parra Rematch Back on For Feb. 18th

By Jaime Alfredo Gomez, notifight.com

WBO bantamweight champion Jorge "Travieso" Arce (59-6, 45KOs) is once again scheduled to fight Venezuelan Lorenzo "Lencho" Parra (31-3, 18KOs). Their rematch is back on for February 18th in Mexicali, Mexico. They previously fought to a draw in September 2010, at super bantamweight. The WBO refused to sanction the rematch, because of Parra's poor ranking status with their organization. The fight is going to be a ten round non-title encounter, likely at super bantamweight or above.

"I wanted to defend my title, but the WBO would not approve Parra, with whom I have a draw. Parra is strong, and has a good boxing style, and that's why I'm going to prepare very well. God willing, I will beat him and then wait for the winner of Nonito Donaire and Wilfredo Vazquez Jr.," Arce said.

[QUOTE=jrosales13;11712973]The first fight was very close. But, this rematch? it's a meh...[/QUOTE] dude is at the end of his career and wants to avenge defeats and draws and to boot this is just a stay busy fight.

Not a bad stay busy fight. He'll get the opportunity to grab a win over someone he drew with, and I'm sure his next fight will be with a big name.

So, didn't Parra just lose every second of every round to Moreno nine months ago in his last fight? Yes, by all means he should be granted another title fight!

A good stay busy fight for Arce.
