Los Mochis, Sin - Jorge "Travieso" Arce closed the beating of the drums for his 9-weeks of intense training in Los Mochis. The training has ended with impressive results, and there is no doubt to Arce and his team, that he will become the first Mexican ever to be world champion world into four divisions. Arce faces unbeaten Puerto Rican WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo "Papito" Vasquez (20-0-1, 17 KOs) in Las Vegas, Nevada, with Manny Pacquiao facing Shane Mosley in the main event.
"I'm anxious to get in the ring with Vazquez. I feel great, my weight is very good, and there is no doubt that I'll be without problems making the super bantamweight limit. I will surprise the doubters because my warrior's heart is bigger than anything," said Arce, who will arrive on Monday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"I've never felt this good. I feel strong, fast and without weight problems. I'm highly motivated to become the first Mexican to win world championships in four weight divisions. I will definitely beat Vazquez on May 7. And [our run] will continue. Mexico will continue to be better than Puerto Rico in the ring. Our fighters have more heart and courage. We do not quit and put a knee on the canvas."
