Jorge Arce Wants a Title Crack at Orlando Salido

By Miguel Angel Cebreros, notifight.com

One of the most charismatic Mexican fighters of the last decade, Jorge "Travieso" Arce, is ready to give his boxing career a final run, as he returns for the first time since the knockout loss to Nonito Donaire on December 15, 2012. Arce retired after that fight, but a few weeks ago he made a decision to return. Arce (61-7-2-1, 46 KOs) will return this Saturday night n the Mexican city of San Luis Potosi, against Colombian José Carmona (22-3, 12 KOs).

Arce, who wants his sixth world crown, is hoping to face countryman Orlando Salido, the WBO featherweight champion. He would like to get a shot at Salido in the first half of 2014.

"I have always been a warrior, and I'm looking for a fight against Salido, who is promoted by the same company as me. I want to close some mouths by winning my sixth world crown, because a lot of people are saying that Juan Manuel Marquez would be the first [Mexican] with five [divisional] titles, because [one of my titles was an interim], but now I'll get the sixth and what will they have to say then. It's rude, disrespectful towards me. But yeah, I do not live for world titles. I do not care if they do not recognize them, I do my job and try to do it as well as I can," Arce said.

[QUOTE=Trenchant;13927906]Arce is good against sluggers, it would be fun to watch and I guess Arce needs money....[/QUOTE] He said after the Donaire fight that he didn't need the money, but it doesn't look like it.
