Arce deserves a big paycheck. He's earned it. Rigondeaux has not.
You saw what Donaire did to Montiel. C'mon man. It'll be the same outcome or even worse which I hate to even think about. Arce has no chance as much as I like him. At some point you have to put money aside and think about the competitive aspect of boxing. Arce has a great resume. Fine. I don't dispute that. What he accomplished is in the past. You have to look at the present. Rigo does not have the experience but at least we know he's fighting at a much higher level than Arce.
It's time we boycott these low-risk, high-reward fights. Nonito doesn't need it. If beating Montiel didn't make Nonito into a PPV star, defeating Arce isn't going to make a difference. Why should we care about how much fighters get paid anyway? Our job is to find great, competitive fights. Donaire-Arce is not one of them!
