After having won seven world boxing titles in five different divisions and having participated in various reality shows, now Javier “Travieso” Arce wants to venture into the world of politics , specifically in the state of Sonora.
This was confirmed this Wednesday by the former boxer from Sinaloa in an interview for Proyecto Puente : “We are doing this, helping people. What I want is to serve and not serve myself as the majority do. I want to be an intermediary between the government and the people, it is what the people need, lower resources, for those who need the most ”.
Although the multi-champion of the World Boxing Council (WBC) accepted that “this is not the time to declare himself,” he hinted that he would seek to be a deputy or councilor at the invitation of Ernesto De Lucas , president of the PRI State Steering Committee in Sonora.
It is worth mentioning that, in recent years, due to a business issue, he changed his residence to the city of Hermosillo , the capital of the entity.
However, he clarified that he does not want a political position because of the need for money , but rather to “do something for the people who need it most,” so he asked the people of Hermosillo for the opportunity to serve them.
I would very much like to dignify politics, there are a lot of rats, corrupt, who have kept the money, I would like to do good things for the people
In addition, he maintained that he has nothing to hide and that he can show all his assets because he won it cleanly . And if he did not win an election, he would go home to rest; however, you want to do good things.
Just as I fought above the ring, so I would fight for the rights of the people, I have no need

Asked about the criticism he will receive for being a candidate for public office as a former athlete, he assured that it will be because of the nerves of his opponents and not because of his lack of experience.
The opponents are always nervous, when you see that you want to take their position they feel displaced and they start to throw fire at you
Reactions on social networks
As the interviewer anticipated, after spreading the intentions of the “Naughty” criticism and mockery of the former boxer did not wait on social networks ; but neither were his answers , which were not politically correct.
“Oh my God, how low we have fallen, in Sonora there are prepared people and militants … we are going wrong, one thing is that it is popular and another that it is prepared for a position like the one mentioned,” said a user on Twitter . To which Jorge replied:
Let me tell you something, to serve those who need it the most, you don't need doctorates, you need to have the will, are the Morenos (Morena officials) very prepared? Please
“If it appears on the ballot in 2021, it would be the Naughty's first lie to the people. He had said 'first I'm going to prepare, study,' “recalled another netizen. But the applicant clarified that he will do so:
By the time the ballots arrive I will have high school and be studying Law, do not eat quiet cravings, they are very upset. Relax it's not times yet

Why doesn't Mr. Travieso go and run there in Sinaloa? Because here? What prevents you from serving in Sinaloa, why here yes and there not? Asked another. The former boxer's response was not very kind:
Because now I live in Hermosillo and what I decide is very my fart, if you don't like it, don't vote for me and that's it, your problem is over
This Friday , September 25 , at 7:00 p.m., it will be the third exhibition fight between Julio César Chávez vs. Jorge “Travieso” Arce , in Tijuana, Baja California.
Although the fight will be held behind closed doors due to the contingency of the coronavirus pandemic, it will be transmitted via streaming for a cost of 175 pesos.
