WBC featherweight Champion Johnny Gonzalez came cheek to jowl with force of nature Jorge “Travieso” Arce, at a press conference at the headquarters of Televisa, prior to their mega fight on October 4th in Los Mochis, Sinaloa.
“I can not be over confident. It’s a fight in which I have too much to lose. My training has been meticulous and great, because we know Arce is a tremendous fighter. Lots of people mistakenly think it will be an easy fight and that I’m going to knock him out in the early rounds. But every fight is different and we don’t have to underestimate anyone,” insisted the prudent Champion.
Arce, who has a formidable record of 64 wins, 49 knockouts, seven defeats and two draws, said his main motivation is NOT being considered as the favourite.
“It’s is not the first time I have had the odds all against me, it happened to me in previous fights and…. I have always come up trumps with the victory,” Arce enthused.
