No love for Khan? I'm interested in seeing if he's learned anything under Virgil. I think Virgil Hunter is one of the best trainers in the sport. Love the mental and strategic edge he gives to his fighters. So, I guess more than wanting to see Khan, it's really Hunter I'm intrigued with.

I'm also very disappointed by the Rigo fight getting canceled.

As for Donaire/Arce...I don't know C...Arce looked like he was overacting just a tad (why wouldn't he stand up first?) So I was kinda left feeling unsure about what he has left. I'd like to Donaire in a real scrap. So, I'll echo Prof and hope Arce makes a fight out of it!

I'll probably switch back and forth.

I believe it will take a few fights for us to see any real change in Khan's game. I haven't seen much of Molina at all (maybe by accident on FNF or ShoBox), but I also have a feeling that he was picked as a sacrificial lamb.

With that in mind, we'll never know how much Khan has improved, if he's fighting somewhat of a no-hoper. They should've sought a Peterson rematch. He wont have to worry about getting knocked out, and we'll see some type of improvement against a formidable opponent.

I just hope Arce goes out on his shield...Nonito's last few opponents have been hesitant to throw anything. Vasquez showed us that a stiff jab can keep Donaire at bay and embarrass him a bit. Hopefully Arce isn't too Mexican to the point where he refuses to fight a disciplined fight.

they don't get anymore mexican than arce. he'll be throwing his usual wide ass hay makers that will play right into donaire's hands. look for an impressive ko from no-knee-toe.
