Jorge Arce Targets Juanma Lopez For Comeback Clash

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former world champion Jorge "El Travieso 'Arce, who retired last December after getting knocked out by Nonito Donaire, is willing to return for a comeback fight with Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez at a catch-weight fight of 128-pounds.

"I would like to fight Juanma because it is a good fight. Another rivalry between Mexico and Puerto Rico. I think it's good. It's true what they say. I would like to fight again in my life and we could do it at 128 pounds. It can be a great fight and if they tell me to sign a contract now, I'll sign," Arce said to ESPN Deportes.

Arce has a record of 61-7-2 and 46 knockouts. He held titles at flyweight, super flyweight, super bantamweight and bantamweight.

Juanma is a former super bantamweight and featherweight champion. He has a record of 33-2 with 30 knockouts. His last two fights have taken place near the super featherweight limit.

The Puerto Rican boxer is willing to discuss the possibility of doing the fight, if the money is right and his promoters agree that Arce is the best option out there.

Arce will get hurt with that idea.
