Jorge Arce: Do Not Count Me Out Against Nonito Donaire!

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBO bantamweight champion Jorge Arce (60-6, 46KOs) has warned the critics to avoid counting him out in a possible September clash against Nonito Donaire (28-1, 18KOs), the WBO's champion at super bantamweight.

Arce expects to land an undercard position on the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley pay-per-view, which takes place on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. And then he anticipates a clash with Donaire in September.

"Right now we are taking it step by step, fight by fight. We'll [move on] to June 9 and then face Nonito Donaire in September - because that's the fight I want," Arce said. "A lot of people are leaving me for dead with Donaire, but I have to remind you that [I was viewed in the same light] against Yo-Sam Choi, Hussein Hussein and Wilfredo Vazquez - and you saw how those fights played out."

"Boxing is about styles and moments. I think Donaire will beat Toshiaki Nishioka if they fight, because [Donaire] is younger and faster. We have seen flaws in Donaire and he showed them in the fight with Vazquez in San Antonio, and that's where we plan to attack."

The only one that has a chance to beat Donaire at SB is Rigo.

We won't have to count you out, Jorge. The ref will do that for us. Donaire by stoppage.

He's right...You can't count out the lolipop cowboy. I never thought I would say this after his 2009 campaign in his losing effort to the hands of The Raging Bull and complimenting retirement after that fight just to come back…

I'd like to c Arce win , but probably won;t, but he comes to fight...it's jut he gets hit 2 much & w/his propensity 2 cut, a lot of negatives, but still, he's got a better chance than WV2 did...
