Defending titlist Nonito Donaire faces Jorge Arce

Nonito Donaire so called “The Filipino Flash” will be facing Jorge Arce on 15th Dec. The 122-pound flyweight Donaire will fight for the fourth time in HBO’s main event “World Championship Boxing” and for the 3rd time against Jorge Acre.
Since October Top Ranks have been trying to set a match between Donaire and Jorge but it dint come out well and the clash was finally set on 15th Dec. The event which is being held by the HBO spent a lot of money after Timothy Bradley Jr. chooses not to fight in Dec 15th.
Said Bob Arum, “We have always wanted to do this type of fighting and now we can do it.” After the Bradley situation, HBO’s first huge investment is in this.
A unification match was called for between Donaire and Rigondeaux, formerly the Olympic gold medalist, but due to unavailability Rigondeaux is going to fight Kratingdaenggym and the deal was made on Tuesday.
The unified bantamweight titleholder and the former flyweight Donaire knocked down Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. to claim the vacant belt. Starting with the first defense in July he defeated Jeffrey Mathebula to proceed to the fifth round and to gather two belts.
Donaire defeated Nishioka, who continued winning for eight years and never losing any belts. He amazingly scored knockdowns in 3rd, 6th and 9th round of the game play. Now Donaire, 30, will take on Acre, 33, who is a well decorated fighter and will fight hard to prove it.
Donaire’s manager Cameron Dunkin said “I was a great lover of fights. Acre will give up everything for this fight but I think Donaire will be able to handle it as he is the best in 122. It’s exciting that he will be fighting his forth match this year.”
Donaire, the Philippines native and living in Oakland, is recently suffering from his left arm with bad cuts on his knuckle. With nine stitches on his hand everybody thought that ha woun not be able to play for the fourth time in this year but Dunkin has said that he is recovering and will play the match.
Arum originally thought of New Mexico City Arena but due to high cost ha has to cut off. Though Acre has been preparing for over a month it would be a challenge for Donaire to fight him.
Dunkin said “Acre is not going to be playing cats and mouse. He is a good fighter and will try to keep it a sensational in Texas with the Mexican crowds surrounding nut I am not going to lose any hope.”
