Arce is way past his prime and this fight is just an opportunity to put another name on this kids resume. Vasquez should pull it off.

Should be a good fight and a good test for WV2. He better be prepared.

He's not a special fighter but he's one of my favorite PR fighters. Id love to see him face Lopez in the near future. But Arce is still dangerous and should not be taken lightly especially after all thos upsets…
