Jorge Arce by unanimous decision after winning every round against an opponent that didnt seem to want to fight. Arce as always, put on a good show and tried valiantly for the knockout.
Ler wanted to fight but knew he couldn't handle Arce in a brawl. It made for a boring fight, Ler had decent defense until the latter rounds (getting caught when he did want to mix it up). Arce wasn't the most impressive guy either, most of his shots to the arms of Ler rather than to the body. Ler was never in contention but he did last until the end. Arce needs to fight Darchinyan.
