Arce vs Parra II: Fight Time, TV Schedule, Odds, and Undercard

Jorge Arce looks for a measure of revenge against Lorenzo Parra tonight in Mexicali.

Tonight in Mexicali, Mexico, Jorge Arce looks to settle another score with his third straight rerun rematch fight, a non-title bout at super bantamweight. Arce tried to get the WBO to sanction it as a title fight, but the organization refused. The fight ultimately went ahead anyway, and here we are with the rematch.

In 2010, Arce (59-6-2, 45 KO) and Parra (31-3-1, 18 KO) went to a draw in a fight most felt Parra won. This is a chance for Arce to get some measure of revenge, and notch win No. 60 in his great career.

Fight time: 9:30 p.m. EST

Location: Palenque del FEX - Mexicali, Mexico

TV channel: TV Azteca (Mexico)

Odds: Arce has been given very wide odds for this fight (-825 on one book, -1100 on another), and could be a major sucker's best, as Parra (+525, +700) was horribly unlucky to leave their first fight with a draw, as he really deserved the win. Parra may be over the hill and small for the division, but Arce isn't fresh, either, and it's just not an easy style matchup for the Mexican.

Undercard: Jorge Paez Jr (30-4-1, 18 KO) faces Octavio Castro (14-7-1, 9 KO) in a 10-rounder at welterweight. Armando Robles (18-1-1, 9 KO) takes on Abraham Alvarez Osuna (16-1-1, 7 KO) in a junior welterweight bout set for 10 rounds.

Arce, 32, was said to be all but signed on the dotted line to be Nonito Donaire's next opponent with a win in this fight, but there appear to have been some second guesses, as the Mexican is now not going to be Donaire's opponent when the Filipino returns on June 16.

Parra, 33, looked very soft at yesterday's weigh-in, and simply does not truly belong at this weight, even though he's been fighting around here for the last five years. He's never really recovered from losing his flyweight belt on the scales to Takefumi Sakata in March 2007, and then Sakata stopped him in three anyway. It's been a rocky road of late, and in his last bout, Parra looked lethargic and disinterested in a bad loss to Anselmo Moreno.
