Arce's prediction

Mexican Jorge Arce enjoys the underdog role in their coming December 15 fight with "the Filipino Fash" Donaire at Toyota Center, Houston, Texas. The mischievous "El Traveiso" Arce aims to KO the Filipino star.

Jorge Arce is pretty sure he's the big underdog when he faces Nonito Donaire on December 15, live on HBO from Houston, Texas, but isn't bothered by that role, believing he can lick Donaire.

"I am sure that I will knock him out. ... I fight better, with more confidence and with more desire when I'm the underdog. And on this occasion it will be no different."

It is likely that the Guillermo Rigondeaux versus Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym bout will co-feature to Nonito Donaire vs Jorge Arce on HBO on December 15.

Donaire's record speaks

Acknowledging that Donaire is a good fighter, Arce (61-6-2, 46 KOs) has fanned the flames by saying that the Filipino has never faced a fighter "with balls," a statement which didn't sit well with Dunkin. "I think Arce has a lot of balls to say the other fighters Nonito has faced didn't have balls," Dunkin says. "Arce said he is going to fight to the death, and give everything he's got. But when the body doesn't work, it doesn't matter how much balls you have."

Donaire (30-1, 19 KOs) possesses the kind of one-punch knockout power that can make opponents' bodies stop working, as the Filipino demonstrated first against slugger Vic Darchinyan five years ago, and last year against Fernando Montiel. Donaire was a virtual unknown when he stepped into the ring with Darchinyan, who was then 28-0, a world champion, and had knocked out 23 of his last 24 opponents. A super-aggressive fighter, Darchinyan walked right into a short counter left hook in the fifth round from Donaire and went down like he'd been hit with a sledgehammer. So powerful was that hook, that when Darchinyan got up, he staggered around the ring like a drunkard until the referee stopped the fight.

Unfortunately, I didn't see it live but me and my wife( a filipina) got podcast updates as the fight was progressing. Being able to go up 7 classes without losing stride is amazing. I watched DeLaHoya fight on Tv in philippines but then watched Pacman pummel DeLaHoya in the next fight. I knew after that he was for sure pound-for pound best fighter right now. No question! Now that Cotto got dropped I think there's noone in his weight class left to fight. he has to win 8 titles now to pick up any good opponents.

Better late than never. Just wanted to thank you for your awesome article. I used it as one of my references for my own project. Good job, sir. Rep. Manny Pacquiao is the best sportsman the world could ever have. A neverending thanks to him. He transcended the sport many times already. He conquered 10 weight divisions and won 8-division titles. Long live the king of the sport!
