The final press conference for this weekend’s Nonito Donaire vs. Jorge Arce bout on HBO was held this afternoon in Houston. On the undercard of course is Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym. Right here, you can view a collection of photos from the final Donaire vs. Arce press conference, as well as some video and other notes. Take a look.
As you can see, there’s also a series of photos from the pre-fight workout sessions held for the media earlier in the week.
What’s interesting is that Donaire and Arce seem to like one another and have been joking around during all of these events. Obviously Arce is always a unique character on his own accord, but he seems to be bringing some of that out in the Filipino Flash as well.
In the video, Donaire talks about how he prefers to be the underdog but isn’t in this fight of course. He’s also been telling Arce that if he wants to get in there and rumble to bring it in. Should be a fun fight while it lasts.
The co-feature is a solid match-up, and lends more credence to the idea that we may see Donaire vs. Rigondeaux next year if everything goes according to plan.
