Bad Left Hook Fight Night: Rafael Concepcion v. Jorge Arce

New, comments

You know what I hate about this coming weekend? No boxing.

To try and cover some time, I'll be watching and scoring the fight between Jorge Arce and WBA interim super flyweight titlist Rafael Concepcion tonight, starting at 10 11pm ET on TV Azteca. Arce is always a hoot, and Concepcion is coming off of a shocking and devastating knockout of Filipino prospect AJ Banal.

If Concepcion wins again tonight, I'll consider it another massive upset. Arce is obviously far more experienced, bigger, has the hometown advantage, and should be considered the heavy favorite.
