By Roy & Marlene Marquez

On the afternoon of the Fernando Montiel vs. Nonito Donaire bantamweight championship, Top Rank President Bob Arum gathered the boxing media to introduce the undercard combatants on the May 7th, Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley mega fight. “If you do a big fight, you don’t put garbage on the undercard,” said Arum.

On hand were Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr. and Jorge Arce who will fight for Vazquez’ WBO Jr. Featherweight belt. Vazquez, the champion from Bayamon, Puerto Rico, is 20-1-1 with 17 KOs. A five time world champion, Arce hails from Los Mochis, Mexico and sports a record 56-6-2.

Top contender Urbano Antillon was also on tap to announce his rematch with WBC Lightweight champion Humberto Soto (54-7-2). Last December, Antillon (28-2) lost to Soto in a classic battle by a narrow margin. Many publications picked Soto vs. Antillon I as the 2010 Fight of the Year.

On April 16, WBO Featherweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez faces former belt holder Orlando Salido (34-11-2) in Coliseo Roberto Clemente, San Juan, Puerto Rico. Lopez (30-0) used the opportunity to pose for photos with countrymen Vazquez Jr. and former champion Ivan Calderon.

Ivan Calderon is looking to recapture the WBO Light flyweight title he lost to Giovani Sergura last August. On April 2nd, Calderon gets his chance for redemption in Estadio 20 de Noviembre, Campeche, Mexico. Calderon (34-1-1) tangles with Segura (22-1-1) in a highly anticipated rematch of little, big men.
