Jorge Arce stopped Tomas Rojas in the sixth round of their WBC Latino Bantamweight bout Sunday night with a technical knockout. The bout was the main event of Top Rank's "Viva Mexico" card at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Acre struggled to defend the jab for most of the fight and was bleeding from his nose after the third round. But he took control in the sixth and floored Rojas with a left hook to the stomach 37 seconds into the round.

Rojas (26-11, 18 KOs) got up from the canvas, but Arce wasted no time in delivering a series of body shots that forced referee Joe Cortes to call the fight at the 2:01 mark.

It was Arce's first fight since April when he lost the WBC flyweight title to Cristian Mijares to break a string of 26 consecutive victories. Now, the 28-year-old wants another shot at Mijares, who gave him his first loss since 1999.

Mijares will whip his ass again. I almost bet huge on Arce to win this fight, but I didn't do the vBookie for it.
yeah mijares will kill him, heck arce was losing every round on one scorecard before he got the ko. in the past, arce hardly lost any rounds to nobodies.
Mijares-Arce II is pretty pointless, Mijares would whip his ass again.
Arce is only 28?? Wow...that face has easily taken another 10 years of punishment.

Mijares will win again. I didnt see anything in that fight that would lead me to believe otherwise.
I want to see Mijares progress and move up in weight.
