HOUSTON, Texas—Jorge Arce has promised a replay of Pacquiao-Marquez 4.

The Mexican legend Arce vowed to shock the world anew this Saturday (Sunday in Manila) by stopping Nonito “Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. in their showdown for the World Boxing Organization crown here.

“I wanna tell you Pacquiao-Marquez will happen again,” said Arce, referring to the underdog Marquez’s stunning one-punch knockout of Pacquiao in the sixth round last Saturday at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The 33-year-old Arce said he considers Donaire the best in the 122-pound division, that’s why he needed to train harder than he has ever had in an illustrious 17-year career that saw him capture four world crowns and compile a 61-win, 6-loss, 2-draw record with 46 knockouts.

Trained by the legendary Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain like Marquez, Arce spent five weeks with Angel Hernandez, the speed and strength conditioning coach of Pacquiao’s nemesis whose previous involvement in performance-enhancing drugs, continues to becloud his accomplishments.

While he considers Donaire a friend, Arce said they will be “enemies for one hour” on Saturday to determine who is really the king in the weight class.

Arce said he will take his 1-year-old son and the rest of his family to Disneyland if he wins.

“This bout’s so special, my heart beats faster just thinking about it,” said Arce.
