Flyweight king Jorge Arce (44-3-1, 34 KOs), from Los Mochis, Mexico, battles Hawk Makepula (28-3, 18 KOs) from East London, South Africa, in a scheduled 12-round, super flyweight contest. A former junior flyweight champion, Arce is among the toughest and most relentless fighters in the lower weight classes. Fresh off a sixth-round knockout of Rosendo Alvarez in April, he now moves up to 115 pounds to take on the biggest challenge of his career in Makepula, a world class, top-rated veteran. This fight could establish the victor as the man to beat in the flyweight divisions.
Opening the broadcast will be the exclusive replay of the Sept. 16th super featherweight title fight between Marco Antonio Barrera and Rocky Juarez II. Barrera scored a unanimous decision victory in their rematch, which was carried on HBO Pay-Per-View.
