Gonzalez Happy To Face Arce Challenge

Current WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez Insists he has no objection defending his title against Jorge Arce after "Travieso" audaciously challenged him via the social networking.


Jhonny advised Travieso to iron things out with Promoter Fernando Beltran. He also advised that before the scrap of the little big men can happen, there’ll have to be a truce between broadcasting companies Televisa and Azteca before any fight can take place.


World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman, said the WBC has no problem in authorizing this fight. On the contrary, he said that if the fight does take place this would be one of the most attractive fights of the year due to the quality and charisma of both boxers.


In a telephone link with Jorge ’Travieso’ Arce, he expressed his desire to become champion in six different divisions, but especially being able to retire as WBC champion.


Arce, one of the most popular Mexican fighters said has prepared the perfect strategy to face Gonzalez.


For the time being calm and unfazed Jhonny will next fight on May 24th in Acapulco,Mexico.


“I’m willing to face “Travieso” he’s a great boxer, warrior, he has five different titles that’s something. The problem is the tv stations, the promoters have to negotiate” said Gonzalez.
