Blaze of Glory Preview

This Saturday, April 14th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, Manny Pacquiao returns to the ring for the first time in 2007 to take on undefeated contender Jorge Solis. The fight is available Live on Pay-Per-View and will feature four bouts showcasing some of today’s most promising young stars. Top Rank President Bob Arum recently indicated a different approach to the production of show by “using some of the formats the UFC has been so successful with recently with more music, less talking and less interruptions allowing us to have four fights on instead of two or three.”

Manny Pacquiao (43-3-2, 33KO’s) v.s. Jorge Solis (32-0-2, 23KO’s)
One of the most ferocious punchers in the game today, Pacquiao’s speed, agility, power and ring generalship are just too much for this unknown contender. Many living legends claim to have had the game plan to defeat Pacquiao and Solis feels he does as well. Pacquiao trainer Justin Fortune told touchgloves.com that “everyone comes in saying I will do this and that to Manny, but theydon’t realize how fast Manny really is. This kid is in for a big surprise.” Named as Fighter of the Year in 2006, Pacquiao will put on another impressive and intense performance.
Cristian Mijares (30-3-2, 11KO’s) v.s. Jorge Arce (46-3-1, 35KO’s)
Mexican punching sensation Jorge Arce makes his second appearance in 2007. Arce made his pro debut at the age of 16 and has taken the sport of boxing to another level. Arce’s level of intensity, his punch output and ring charisma put him at the top of the sport for most exciting fighter to watch. Today, Arce is arguably Mexico’s most popular fighter and has been the star of two Mexican Reality TV shows. Arce will come out guns blazing looking to please the crowd. Mijares does not have the power to counter Arce’s attack.
Brian Viloria (19-1-1, 12KO’s) v.s. Edgar Sosa (26-5, 14KO’s)
Viloria’s speed and power have brought him this far however he still lacks the ability to finish off his opponents. In his last fight with Omar Nino, Viloria failed to capitalize on Nino’s weaknesses to put him away when hurt. Nino went on to win the fight by decision, but was later deemed a no-decision as Nino tested positive for drugs. This is Viloria’s chance to show that he can finish an opponent and has championship qualities. Should be an exciting match-up.
Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. (30-0-1, 23KO’s) v.s. Anthon Shuler (20-4-1, 14KO’s)
Chavez Jr. never had an amateur career and therefore is using his professional career to make up for that. Chavez Jr. is developing into a complete fighter and we are excited to see him perform. With each fight, Jr. has improved and this should be no exception.
