ARCE-ALVAREZ HEAD GOOD PPV UNDERCARD

By Jason Aniel
PhilBoxing.com
07 Apr 2006

THE TRUE SWORN ENEMIES
Millbrae, Ca—Although it will appear on many cable or satellite bill as a 45 dollar charge for the Floyd Mayweather-Zab Judah fight, boxing fans, buying this PPV, are expecting a stacked televised card, featuring some very intriguing match-ups. The headline of the undercard match could steal show as exciting Flyweight, Jorge Arce, will take on his real “sworn enemy”, former two division champion, Rosendo Alvarez. Arce, 43-3-1 (33 KO’s), is one of the most active world contending fighters in the game, fighting five fights since March ’05. Already the WBC interim Flyweight champion, Arce has become one of the most popular fighters in Mexico and is hoping for a title shot at long time world champion, Pongseklek Wongjongkam. For Alvarez, 37-2-2 (24 KO’s), a victory against Arce could ensure this 35-year-old veteran a place in the Hall of Fame. Alvarez’s lone two defeats were a disqualification loss to Beibis Mendoza (Rosendo went on to beat Mendoza twice after) and a spilt decision loss to Mexican legend, Ricardo Lopez (they fought prior in an eight round technical draw where Alvarez dropped Lopez in the second round). The Mexican, Arce, and the Nicaraguan, Alvarez, have made it clear they do truly do not like each, which could shape up to be an exciting brawl.

KING AND ARUM WILL SETTLE THE SCORE
Is has been close to seven years since two of the most recognizable promoters, Bob Arum and Don King, have joined forces, pitting their own fighters against each other. The last fight, where both Arum and King worked together, was the “Fight of the Millennium” between Oscar De La Hoya and Felix Trinidad. In that fight, King’s fighter, Trinidad, won a controversial decision against the Golden Boy. Arum’s fighter has yet to defeat King’s fighter, but before Mayweather (Arum’s fighter) and Judah (King’s fighter) clash, Bob Arum could be even with King should his fighter Arce defeat King’s fighter, Alvarez. The main event of the night could be the tie-breaker between the two most successful boxing promoters.

ARCE TOO BIG FOR ALVAREZ
Even though Rosendo Alvarez’s last fight was at Bantamweight (118), he has naturally been a Light Flyweight (108) and will give up an inch and half in height to Arce. Arce’s weight issues have be clearly documented as Jorge has gain up to 18 pounds from the weigh-in to fight night. Arce will clearly have a substantial size advantage, which could be the edge in what looks to be a grueling war between bitter rivals. Alvarez has been long in the tooth at age 35, but he has faced very soft opposition since 2004, which may give the extra gas needed to out-punch this Mexican “bad ass”. However, Arce has been on a roll lately and his confidence could not be any higher. Even if Alvarez can pull out one more war, it will not be enough for the much bigger and stronger Arce.

ARCE-VILORIA MUST BE MADE
Should Arce win and a fight with the Thai WBC champ can not be made, the biggest fight in the very lower divisions could be a bout with WBC 108 pound champs, Brian Viloria. Both fighters have built a very strong fan based, which could compare to Erik Morales’ and Manny Pacquiao’s fan base, and a fight between the two will the buzz in both the Philippines and Mexico. Arce and Viloria are both promoted by Top Rank, even though they are both in different weight classes. Both fighters want to fight each other and should the fight take place can, despite being a flyweight bout, headline a card.

UNDEFEATED FIGHTERS CLASH
If the Arce-Alvarez bout isn’t intriguing enough, a battle between two undefeated fighters will also be on the card. WBA Lightweight champion, Juan Diaz, will make his third defense of his title against Jose Miguel Cotto, brother of Miguel Cotto. The Houston native, Diaz, is finally getting back into serious competition after several setbacks, which included postponements of two fights, over the last year. For Cotto, 27-0 (19 KO’s), this will be his first crack at a world title and really his first real test as a prize fighter, as he has been brought up very slowly, turning pro back in 1996. Known as the “Baby Bull”, 28-0 (14 KO’s), Diaz is only 22 but has had his fair shares of wars even in a young career. Although Cotto, 28, has fought for over 10 years, Diaz has fought better opposition. Diaz’s brawling and aggressive style could be too much for Cotto, but clearly, the winner will move on bigger and better things and the loser will suffer a major setback.

CHAVEZ, JR CONTINUES HIS “AMATEUR” CAREER
No Top Rank PPV card can be complete without a Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. fight. The 20-year-old son of a legend continues his “amateur” career in the pro ranks. This will be Chavez’s 26th fight and it’s clear that he is years away from even becoming a contender. It won’t be surprising if Chavez doesn’t fight a real contender until his 40th fight, but the growing fighter has plenty of time. Chavez Jr. still needs to figure out his own style as his body changes (he’s close to being six feet tall). This Saturday, he’ll face Rodrigo Juarez, 12-3 (9 KO’s).

QUICK JABS

VANES ALSO ON JUDAH-MAYWEATHER CARD: Prospect Super Welterweight Vanes Martirosyan, 7-0 (4 KO’s), is also scheduled to appear on the “Sworn Enemies” card. Martirosyan, 19-years-old, is trained by the one of the best trainers in the game, Freddie Roach. TOP RANK TAKES FILIPINO BUYERS? Filipinos thinking about buying the June 10th Antonio Tarver-Bernard Hopkins PPV will likely switch to the Miguel Cotto-Paulie Malignaggi PPV card, which is on the same night, now that Bobby Pacquiao, brother of Manny Pacquiao, will fight featherweight great, Kevin Kelly, on the undercard. MARQUEZ WAS ROBBED: After receiving a copy of Juan Manuel Marquez’s lost to now WBA titlist, Chris John, I was interested in seeing how one of the best boxers in the game lost a clear unanimous decision, which was accepted by Fightnews. The bout was not televised in the United States since the fight took place in John’s home country, Indonesia. With the sound turned up (which did not matter because the audio was not in English), Marquez clearly controlled the fight over the entire 12 rounds. My scorecard was 115-111, 9 rounds to 3 with two points deducted from Marquez after low blows, which John did his best John Ruiz impersonation faking a low blow injury. To see why Marquez was robbed, refer to Cliff Rold’s breakdown of the robbery. SOMETHING YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT KING: During my criminal justice class, my teacher discussed an important Supreme Court case, which enacted the very important and major Exclusionary Rule to the fourth amendment to all States. The exclusionary rule is where evidence seized unlawfully (i.e. no search warrant) cannot be used in court. The case—Mapp v. Ohio—was ruled in 1961 and extended the Exclusionary Rule, which was already a federal (country) law to all the individual states. The case involved the police entering a house with a warrant to search for a bomb, but eventually seized a box of pornography, which was illegal at the time. The owner, Mapp, was arrest not for having a bomb, which was not found, but for the possession of pornography. The Supreme Court eventually ruled in favor of Mapp, which lead to the Exclusionary Rule being extended to the states. Why is this important of boxing fans? Besides the fact that all Americans should know their rights, this case would not be possible had a young man named Don King not call the police, asking them to investigate a possible bomb threat against hid life. It was King’s call which led them to Mapp’s house because they thought the bomb, meant for King, was at that house. An important law may not have been possible without Don King!
