Jorge Arce set to return on November 16 in Mexico

Scott Halleran

Popular Mexican brawler Jorge Arce's retirement didn't last long, as the 34-year-old fighter will be back in the ring next weekend.

When Jorge Arce announced his retirement last year following a predictably one-sided loss to Nonito Donaire, many (if not most) were skeptical that it would stick. This summer, it was reported that Arce was looking to return in September, which didn't wind up happening. Now, he has his return date.

Arce, 34, will fight next weekend in Mexico against Brazil's William Prado in a 10-round super bantamweight fight, according to a report at BoxingScene.com. Arce (61-7-2, 46 KO) says he spoke about coming back with his promoter and his family, and feels his body is responding well still, so he wants to give it one more go.

Though it's easy to say that Arce should retire (people have been saying it for at least five years at this point) due to accumulated damage from a lot of tough fights, he's shown no major signs of being in danger (abnormally so, anyway) other than he's getting older and he's not as good as he used to be.

Arce-Prado will be aired on TV Azteca in Mexico.
