Arce (53-6-1, 40 KOs) of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico held a public workout that was well attended by media and fans.
“It’s always a pleasure to see my fans and greet the media. I have always felt that Ciudad Obregon is one of the best boxing towns in Mexico and had always wanted to fight here in a main event. This Saturday I will give the fans as good as fight as I can give them,” said Arce.
Santos (23-13-3, 14 KOs) of Mexico City is due to arrive tomorrow in Ciudad Obregon.
“Everyone knows that I want to a four-time world champion, but before I can ever think about that, I have to beat Santos and that’s not going be easy,” said Arce.
In the co-main event, young undefeated prospect Miguel “Barreterito” Beltran of Los Mochis will take on the roughed Joksan Hernandez of Ensenada, Mexico in a 10 round featherweight bout.
The final press conference will be Thursday and the weight-in will be on Friday.
