Jorge Arce is still crazy after all these years, and the recently-returned ("unretired") 34-year-old Mexican brawler wants another shot at a world title, and he's targeting IBF featherweight titlist Evgeny Gradovich.
"I would love to fight Gradovich. He is good fighter but personally I'm not impressed. He says he is a 'Russian-Mexican' - then lets see how he does a Mexican. I feel good and want to face the best at featherweight, he has faced good fighters, but he is not a warrior like me."
Arce (62-7-2, 47 KO) returned to the ring on November 16 in Mexico with a win over Jose Carmona. In his last notable fight, he was predictably decimated by Nonito Donaire in December 2012.
Gradovich (18-0, 9 KO) successfully defended his belt this past weekend against Billy Dib in Macao, a rematch of their first fight, which is where Gradovich won the title and burst into the world scene.
Would Arce be any match for the bigger, physical, hard-charging Gradovich?
