Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. vs. Jorge Arce Exhibition on November 22

Regarded by many as the greatest Mexican fighter of all-time, Julio César Chávez Sr., will return to the ring on November 22 at the Municipal Auditorium of Tijuana, in an exhibition bout, against another former world champion, in countryman Jorge 'Travieso' Arce.

The two Mexican legends are coming together to raise funds to assist the recovery of boxer Christian Castillo, the son of former world champion José Luis Castillo.

In addition to Chávez and Arce colliding, there will also be exhibition bouts between Jose Luis Castillo and former champion Humberto 'Zorrita' Soto, as well as former champion Antonio 'Tony' DeMarco going against Ernesto 'Baby' Zepeda. And José Luis Castillo Jr. is going to have a professional fight that night.

"I think there are going to be several world champions, my exhibition is going to be with Arce, who is brave and very strong. In the exhibitions I have done in the past the people have left very happy. The reflexes are no longer the same, but there are still flashes of the boxer I was," Chavez Sr. told ESPN Deportes.

Arce raised his hand to join the cause, and although he said he didn't know who he was going to exchange punches with in that exhibition, he said he was ready for anyone.

"We are ready, I didn't really know who it would be against, but it is with a great Mexican champion which makes it even better," said the charismatic Arce.

José Luis Castillo's son, Christian, who had a setback in a sparring session. He was badly injured during the session and was quickly taken to the hospital to have emergency surgery.

Obviously, many don't know that Castillo was his sparring partner before his career took.
