Photos: Jorge Arce, Simphiwe Nongqayi Face To Face

By Rafael Soto

Mexicali, BC .- The first Mexican in history to win titles in four divisions, Jorge "Travieso" Arce, will defend the Super Bantamweight title of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) on Saturday at PromoCasa Forum in Mexicali, when he faces Simphiwe Nongqayi in a rematch. Arce (57-6-2, 44 KOs) wants to avenge a 2009 decision loss to Nongqayi (16-1-1, 6 KOs), who still remains as the last fighter to beat the Mexican champion. The two boxers came face to face at the final press conference.

"It was a bad night for me and my team in Cancun. I had shin splints, I slow And without strength, because the before I came down with a bad flu and I did not recover. Things will be different this time and I'm looking to knock him out.

"I have several offers, and a lot of plans after I beat Simphiwi. A possible fight in November against Papito Vasquez and maybe going for the title against [WBC featherweight king] Jhonny Gonzalez," Arce said.


 
"I want to thank Zanfer for this opportunity and I also want to Jorge Arce for giving me the opportunity to fight here once again and prove what i did the last time. I can say that I beat you the last time and this time it's going to be the same. I beat you and I beat your brother Francisco and I will end things on Saturday," Nongqayi said.
