Jorge Arce: I Want To Fight Juanma vs. Salido Winner

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

JORGE "Travieso" Arce says he is surprised because, despite having captured a fifth world title in a fifth weight divisions, there are still voices who question his achievements. The WBO bantamweight champion argues that "the criticism makes ​​me stronger" and insists that he plans to "find a sixth championship." Last Saturday in Mazatlan, Arce won the WBO bantamweight belt by defeating Indonesian Angky Angkotta on points. The belt was vacated by Filipino Nonito Donaire.

Arce confirmed plans to defend his title in early 2012, and then he wants to move up to featherweight for a shot at the WBO title. He wants the winner of the rematch between champion Orlando Salido and Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez.

"I want to fight the winner between Orlando Salido, the WBO featherweight champion, and Juanma Lopez," he said. "Nothing is easy, but nothing is impossible. If Manny Pacquiao, who was a flyweight, like myself, went up to welterweight and junior middleweight, and beat much bigger opponents at the higher weight, then why couldn't I do it?."
