Jorge Arce/Vic Darchinyan

On Feb. 7, a potential fight of the year will take place at 115 pounds when Vic Darchinyan (31-1-1, 25 knockouts) takes on popular Mexican fighter Jorge Arce (51-4-1, 39 knockouts).

The two fighters are crowd-pleasing fighters and both have big wins in their career. Darchinyan is coming off a big win against Cristian Mijares. Arce has won titles at both 108 and 115 pounds.

This could be a very good fight, but I believe Darchinyan has too much power and too much youth and I can see him stopping Arce somewhere in the middle of the fight.

What are your thoughts?

Nice, I love "El Travieso's" style. He is definately a crowd pleaser. Where is the fight going to take place. I've been able to see him a few times and have never been disappointed regardless of the end result (2-1 with a 1st and 4th rd k.o.) Hopefully, if it isnt in Vegas, it's somewhere nearby, I would love to go see that fight in person.

It should be fun while it lasts but I don't see Arce being able to stand up to Vic D's power for too long. Arce's reflexes aren't what they used to be and he was never really a slick boxer type to begin with. Darchinyan in 7.
