Jorge Arce: The Fight I Want Most is Jhonny Gonzalez

By Ryan Burton

Four division champion Jorge "Travieso Arce (63-7) announced his retirement from boxing after he was stopped in 3 rounds against Nonito Donaire in December, 2012. 11 months later he was back in the ring and has won both of his fights since ending his short lived retirement.

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with the popular Mexican to find out what he is hoping to accomplish in his final run in the sport.  Arce said that he was bored and wasn't enjoying his retirement so he reached out to his promoter, Zanfer Promotions, about making a comeback.

"Boxing is my life.  All of my life I have been a boxer.  After I retired I was depressed and sad so I called my promoter (Fernando) Beltran and I told him I am depressed and I need a fight so he said 'ok mijo you come back' so then I was back training," revealed Arce.

Arce's name has been linked to former two division champion Juan Manuel Lopez who scored an upset win over Daniel Ponce De Leon last month and also with WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez who returns to the ring next month to defend his title.  Arce said that he is interested in both fights but prefers Gonzalez because he has a title.

"I was surprised (at the result).  Juanma was very strong and had a good punch. I think Ponce got a little careless but Juanma is a great fighter and did a great job," Arce stated.  "I am not sure who I am going to fight next but the fight I want the most is against Jhonny Gonzalez.  I want to fight for the title," Arce told BoxingScene.com.
