Bob Arum to announce Donaire-Arce duel

Expects verbal fireworks Thursday (Friday in Manila) when Nonito Donaire and Jorge Arce face off when Top Rank chief Bob Arum formally announces their mouth-watering December 15 showdown at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

The 18,000-capacity arena, the home of the Houston Rockets of the NBA, will be the venue of the press conference and Arum is sure to hype the event to high heavens as if it’ll be a fight for the world heavyweight championship.

Donaire, one of the world’s best fighters pound-for-pound, will be putting his WBO super-bantamweight crown on the line against Arce, the Mexican banger who doesn’t know how to take a backward step.

Arce is so pumped up for Donaire that he has been working out the last few weeks under the watch of Nacho Beristain at the Romanza Gym in Mexico City.

Donaire, meanwhile, just got back to the US after vacationing in the Philippines and Japan.

Although the Fil-Am puncher hasn’t been to the gym, he is making sure that his weight remains in check.

After the press con on Thursday, Donaire will head to his training camp in San Carlos, California.
