Los Mochis, Sin - Bantamweights Francisco "Panchito" Arce and Hugo "Cuatito" Ruiz were present at the final press conference to hype this Saturday's rematch at the Centennial football stadium, with the interim-WBA bantamweight title at stake. The event is being promoted by Zanfer Promotions, HG Boxing and Sampson Boxing. TV Azteca and Fox Sports will televise.

Ruiz (28-1-1, 25 KOs) looks to retain his title for a second time over "Panchito" Arce (31-7-3, 22 KOs). This past May they waged war for twelve rounds with multiple knockdowns. Arce appeared to be the winner, but the official judges sided with Ruiz. A rematch was necessary to set the record straight. The referee will be Raul Caiz Jr. or the United States, while the judges are going to be Nelson Vasquez of Puerto Rico, Ignacio Robles of Panama and the United States Ted Gimzo.

"I know I'm risking a lot by accepting this fight because Arce is a tremendous fighter and he showed that in the previous fight, but I'm a champion that I have to take on anyone and what better than a quality opponent like Panchito. I have prepared myself even harder than I did for the first fight, and I have no doubt that I'll win," Ruiz said.

"Panchito" Arce said: "I thank God for all the blessings he has given me. I have a beautiful girl, a wife who loves me, brothers and parents who have always been with me and now I get another opportunity to win the world title. I am the happiest man in the world and this Saturday I will be world champion. I'm going to put on the fight of my life."

In the co-feature, the vacant interim-super flyweight title of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) will be at stake, as Daniel "Bad Boy "Rosas (12-0, 9 KOs) and Jose "Matador "Cabrera (20-2-1, 8 KOs) collide.
