Tomas Rojas Denies Taking a Dive Against Jorge Arce

By Miguel Rivera

Former champion Tomas Rojas has denied recent allegations that he took a dive against Jorge Arce in their bout which took place in September 2007 in Las Vegas. Mexican newspaper Notiver published an interview where a writer printed alleged quotes from Rojas, claiming the boxer told him that Zanfer Promotions asked him to take a dive in exchange for 100,000 dollars and television exposure. Rojas is alleged to have told the reporter that he accepted the money and could have easily beaten Arce that night. Arce beat Rojas in six rounds.

However, Rojas denies making those comments to reporter Pedro Munoz Zamudio, who the boxer claims fabricated the information. The story caused such a stir in Mexico that Zanfer Promotions released a statement denying the incident in question.

"The reporter started asking me about the fight between Marquez and Pacquiao. Then he asked me about my fight with Arce and told me it was fixed. I said no. I do not know why he wrote that. What that guy [wrote] is a vile lie," Rojas told Sal Rodriguez.
