New opponent for Jorge Arce

Multi-division world champion Jorge “Travieso” Arce (61-7-2, 46 KOs) will now return against Colombian Jose Carmona (22-3, 12 KOs) on Saturday at “The Dome” in San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Arce was originally to face Giovani “Ruso” Caro (24-14-4, 19 KOs), but Caro fell ill yesterday forcing Zanfer Promotions to seek an immediate replacement and Carmona meets the requirements to be a tough test. At 34-years-old, with a successful career of 71 fights over 17 years including 27 world championship fights and winning four world championship belts, plus a WBC interim belt, Arce will resume his boxing career with the firm objective of winning a sixth belt in a sixth different division. In his most recent bout, in December last year, Arce was destroyed by Nonito Donaire after which he announced his retirement. However, Arce returned to the gym feels he is now in great shape and is serious about his comeback.
