Donaire's Hand is Healed, Ready For The Arce Fight

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire says his left hand, which was cut during the October fight with Toshiaki Nishioka and needed eight stitches, has healed and he’s ready to face former multi-titled champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce at the Toyota Center in Houston. Texas on December 15th.

When asked about his injured hand Donaire told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard “my hand is definitely good and I’m ready for this fight.”

Donaire said there was no problem when he punched opponents during his sparring at the Undisputed Gym in San Carlos, California.

He said “there’s no problem at all with the weight” and should have no problems making the 122 pound limit.

Donaire recognizes the fact that Arce “is a tough guy but like every other fight if there is an opening I could see, I will take that opportunity and then we’ll see how tough he is.”

The 30 year old Filipino who is ranked No. 5 in the Ring Magazine pound for pound listing told us he is mentally and physically prepared for  the fight.

Donaire said “I am very ready to go.”
