Nonito vows: I will be ready for Jorge Arce

World Boxing Organization/International Boxing Federation super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire, said he will be ready to face Mexican warrior Jorge Arce, tentatively on Oct. 20 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
However, a conflict in the telecast of the planned title fight for the vacant WBO bantamweight crown relinquished by Arce, between No.1-ranked AJ Banal and No.2 Pungluang Sor Sungyu of Thailand and the Donaire-Arce bout, which will be both telecast by ABS-CBN over Channel 2, will have to be resolved.
The issue is likely to be settled when Top Rank promoter Bob Arum arrives in Manila and meets with ABS-CBN Vice president for Sports Peter Musngi in the first week of August.
Donaire’s wife Rachel earlier said that the Arce showdown was set for Oct. 13, but Arum toldManila Standard it will be Oct. 20.
In an overseas telephone conversation, Donaire said his training regimen for the Arce fight will be different from the manner in which he prepared for the title unification bout with IBF champion Jeffrey Mathebula last July 7 at the Home Depot Center in Carson City, California.
