Donaire will fill in for what Pacquiao has missed in his last fight

A few hours from now, and exactly one week after a devastating sixth round KO loss by Pacquiao to Juan Manuel Marquez of Mexico, we will be witnessing another showdown between boxing's Mexican and Filipino rivalries this time with the "Filipino Flash" Nonito Donaire against a Mexican veteran Jorge Arce at the Toyota Center of Houston, Texas. The two will be fighting at 122 pounds category and we can expect fireworks to explode come fight time. Donaire is a tremendous counter puncher whose left hand, packed with power, floored the likes of Darchinyan, Montiel, Nishioka, and many more. The "Travieso", on the other hand, is a Mexican warrior who will be there to put a pressure upon Donaire and his experience inside the ring will also be a great factor.

Donaire, known as a techhnical fighter, can easily shift to and from of his style to send to school the brawler Mexican with textbook-style precission punching. In comparison, style-wise, the Filipino Flash is the better, and the more skilled boxer than Pacquiao. But what makesPacquiao a great fighter is that he possesed such a kind of ferocity akin of a storm. His speed is packed with power and that is a winning combination which the Filipino Flash also have.

My bold prediction for this fight is that this won't go past six rounds with Donaire winning by knockout. This will even becomes a Fight of the Year candidate if Arce can put up a good fight against in an extraordinary way. The Filipino Flash will simply fill in for what the Pacman has missed against a Mexican a week ago.
