Bad Left Hook Live Boxing Results and Commentary: Jorge Arce v. Angky Angkota

We'll have live, round-by-round coverage of this one, as my FSN affiliate has picked up the show with no Red Wings or Pistons games on tonight.

Arce says this is win-or-retire, but there are a couple of things worth noting:

  1. It's probably not, no matter what he says.
  2. Angkota follows the Arce career path of the last few years. Beat some mid-tier guys, step up, lose, go back to beating a couple mid-tier guys, land another money fight, lose, back to the mid-tier guys...

I think Simphiwe Nongqayi was supposed to be a mid-tier guy last time out, but Arce got schooled in that one. I think the same thing happened in 2008 with Devid Lookmahanak, against whom Arce won a controversial majority decision in Mexico.

Angkota is short and doesn't have a terribly impressive record. I've seen grainy footage of his blowout loss to AJ Banal from 2006, and he hasn't fought anyone with a pulse since. He does have wins over Sonny Boy Jaro (TD-6, 2005) and Donnie Nietes (SD-10, 2004).

Outside of the United States and Mexico, the fight is available via free live stream at wbcboxing.tv.
