A war is expected later tonight in Los Mochis, when Jhonny Gonzalez defends his WBC featherweight championship against former four division world champion Jorge Arce. The fight will be televised by Televisa Deportes.
Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain, who currently trains Gonzalez and not too long ago was the trainer or Arce, views the contest as being more dangerous than people expect. Nacho says Arce is legitimately crazy. A few days ago Arce vowed to die in the ring if necessary.
Nacho says Arce will sacrifice himself, and take punishment, in order to get on the inside to unload with his own punches.
"The toughest thing is that Arce is crazy," said Nacho. "I hope to win, we are working to win. It will be a tough fight for Jhonny and dangerous. We need to control the onslaught of Arce and Jhonny must be cautious and watch out for [Arce's] head, stay in the center of the ring and box. Jhonny can knock him out with one punch, but he must fight with some reservation and concern and watch out that he doesn't get rammed with [Arce's] head, but we worked on that to counter [Arce rushing in with his head]. We will try to fight him in the center of the ring."
