Arce KO’s Nongqayi in Return Bout
 
Three-division champion (sorry, the WBC “interim” flyweight title doesn’t count)/newly-minted WBO super bantamweight champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce, 58-6-2 (45), stopped South Africa’s Simphiwe Nongqayi, 16-2-1 (6), in the fourth round of the “Top Rank Live”/Zanfer Promotions fight card Saturday night at the Foro Promo Casa in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico.
 
Nongqayi, who defeated Arce back in 2009 (having also defeated brother Francisco in the fight prior in February 2009) for the vacant IBF super flyweight title, did not fare so well the second time around against “El Travieso.” With only six KOs under his belt and a bit long in the tooth, Nongqayi was nearly blitzed and stopped in the first round, as Arce came boxing carefully from the perimeter, going on to send his foe down with a left hook to the head in an exchange late in the round.
 
Arce kept up the pressure, ending up with a cut over his right eye, due to a headbutt during close quarter exchanges in the third round.

Arce was on the receiving end of two more headbutts in the fourth round with the second clash leaving him with another cut on the forehead, also resulting in a point taken from Nongqayi.
 
Arce would go on to manhandle Nongqayi with nonstop pressure until referee Rafael Ramos had seen enough, calling off the bout at 2:01 into the fourth frame.
 
In other results, the WBA’s number one-ranked featherweight Victor “Vikingo” Terrazas, 31-2-1 (18), stopped Eduardo Becerril, 12-10-2 (4), in four.
 
Terrazas sent Becerril down in the third round and would be stopped at 2:12 of the following frame as a furious barrage forced the stoppage to the battering.
 
Lightweight Mahonri “Rusito” Montes, 23-0-1 (18), looked impressive in stopping Carlos Velasquez, 18-13-1 (10), at 2:42 of the eighth frame.
 
Escobedo Defeats Juarez in Rocky Outing
 
Five-time world title challenger, Houston’s Rocky Juarez, 28-9-1 (20), failed to make another run at a world title, losing via unanimous decision to Woodland, California’s Vicente “Chente” Escobedo, 24-3-1 (14), Friday night in Telefutura’s “Solo Boxeo” main event at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.
 
In a clash between former Olympians, Escobedo started quick, using his legs, which had considerable bounce to them. “Chente” popped jabs and crosses at Juarez, who took a couple of rounds to warm-up.
 
Slowly closing the gap due to his height and reach deficiency, Juarez finally got Escobedo into a furious exchange in the third round, resulting in Escobedo dropping Juarez in a flash knockdown. More embarrassed than hurt, Juarez quickly got up and went back to work.
 
Getting nailed with sneaky shots, the Californian began to show bruising around his face as Juarez got closer and landed more often as the rounds commenced. In full control for the next two rounds, Juarez got an early night off as his crushing left hook exploded off Escobedo’s jaw at the end of the sixth round.
Mustering everything he had to stay upright, Escobedo’s legs locked up and barely made it back to his corner.
 
Juarez tried hard to inflict further damage in the next round with mixed results but Escobedo was able to regain his senses and regained control, going on to cruise the ten-round distance.
 
Scores were a rather lopsided 98-91, 97-92 and a more realistic 96-93, all for Escobedo.
 
Carrera Defeats Landeros in a War
 
In the co-featured bout, super featherweight Adam Carrera engaged against the always game and tough Adolfo “Terror” Landeros in a six-round, all-out brawl.
 
Carrera, 20-4 (8), hailing from nearby Cathedral City, threw the sharper shots though lacking defense as Landeros nailed him frequently. Carrera hurt Landeros, 21-22-2 (10), badly in the second round, sending him down with a series of head and body shots.
 
Landeros returned the favor, nearly downing Carrera with head shots with the latter barely managing to stay on his feet with referee Jack Reiss keeping a close eye on the action.
 
Finding a home for his body work, Carrera stayed close and worked hard. With Landeros willing to trade, an opening emerged and Carrera landed a wicked, short, inside left uppercut, sending his foe down once more in the third frame.
 
Carrera stayed on the attack, going to the body and landing the occasional low blow with repeated shots costing him a point in the fourth stanza.
 
Both men traded hard down the stretch, with Carrera walking away with a unanimous decision via scores of 58-53 (twice) and 57-54 at the end of six.
