Put that fist in your mouth bud. I can’t tell you’ve never been in a fight before. Lol

Hey, you know what, I want Chris Arreola to win and I think he has the heart and desire to beat Stiverne. 36 fights and 31 KO’s is a nice resume’ package for CA. He beats Stiverne and he will KO Birdlegs. So what he is a little flabby, dude is tough as nails, man, and he has heart. Californian to boot. He is 6’4″ and will be too much for Wilder when he gets there at that point. Wilder is SLAPPY anyway and CA works inside and is a poor match up for Wilder. Sorry Tark, but CA KO’s Wilder. And for BS, Chris fights a smart fight and decisions Bermane for the WBC Title. It is there waiting for him. Dude has to be focused and careful and not make a mistake like he did in the first match with Bermane. Who would not change the strategy after their NOSE is BROKE. How many of you clones out there would fight with a broke nose. Sheet man, nobody! Go Chris, get that title, even on a SD, just win baby. We do not want a DON Freaking King fighter to get the WBC Belt, period. Know what I am sayin? Just win CA, just win baby.

The Facts !

It’s obvious that Stiverne can hurt and drop Arreola ..But After Stiverne busted Arreola’s nose in the third round ,,Arreola had nothing left but Courage .Still !! Stiverne could not finish Arreola off . That tells you something , that maybe a healthy Arreola can beat Stiverne ,,Because Arreola was ready to go and Stiverne was not capable of finishing him off .

it remains to be seen if Wilders chin is his killzone…

Arreola got outboxed by Adamek… a guy he had a lot of size and power on. Stiverne is not as quick fisted or skillful as Adamek — but he is a lot more powerful and a lot tougher… Still if he beats Arreola again he has to fight Wilder. That is not an enthusiastic development for Bermane… At least Arreola is 6’4″… Bermane is 6’1″

Those missiles will be raining down on his head like Hearns vs Duran… It’s tough to fight a right hand bomber who’s 6 inches taller… I mean it’s tough for anybody… Giving up 4 inches is OK.. Even giving up 9 inches is better than 6.. That’s the kill zone if your opponent can really throw hard and fast.

I see the fight going the same way as the last one did. Arreola will come out confident until he gets hit hard and will stay away the rest of the fight and lose a decision. Arreola’s only chance is to try to end the fight early and not give Stiverne a chance to get started. Problem is Arreola’s lack of condition even if he comes in shape is not made for 12 rounds. He doesn’t know how to relax in the ring and by round six he starts to push his punches and retreats back to the ropes. Stiverne will start slow and get stronger as the fight moves along. Arreola needs to go bombs away because after 4 or 5 rounds he’s done anyway.

Stiverne moves well enough to avoid getting hit clean often by Areolla, this was apparent in the first fight, Also Stiverne can bang of the ropes, he was showing some James Toney like rolling and countering, difference being Stiverne hits like a true HW. Im picking Stiverne in this one, but it will be closer and more tactical especially now that Arreola knows he cant bulldog his way in when he wants too. I do agree with the inactivity observation but Arreola has never been hard to hit, so timing and sharpness wont be so much an issue, stamina though is another issue..

Chris sounds very serious in the clip. Let’s see if he comes into the ring with the proper physical conditioning to match his mind set. Ought to be a great fight regardless of who comes away with the belt.

@Jones: Good points, especially about Stiverne’s activity, but Arreola has all the pressure on him in this fight and along with it being in Southern California, there is a lot of mental toughness he will need to display to carry him to the decision. The last time he had this chance he got beat up bad. I believe Stiverne will take the decision because he has the mental edge already and Arreola will have to take it back by force to come out on top. Gonna be a great scrap I think.

Posted March 27, 2014 5:41 pm 


Stiverne’ll start slow because of the ring rust but he’s just too slick for Arreola… Arreola’s gonna bleed all over the place again. If the fight is close of courne Arreola score the unanimous decision win lol

If Chris wins, Wlad fights Chris in NY or L.A. next. That would be good for boxing. Good for the HW division. It may inspire some young Big teenage kid to want to make getting brain damage a living in the future.

Let’s go CHRIS for the Win____________until he fights Wlad and then he is getting beat down sadly.

Syiverne wins again…………

Posted March 27, 2014 4:35 pm 


Arreola does well when he’s backing you up without getting hit with serious leather. He won’t be able to do that in this rematch for fear of getting caught again and that will make him a bit tentative and gun shy.

Arreola is very tough though and he’s got a huge heart. Maybe it’ll be more competitive this time round but I’ll be surprised if he does mange to pull it off.

I don’t recall seeing Arreola having much success before Stiverne splattered his big mushroom nose. Maybe he did have a little but I certainly don’t remember it. It looked to me like he didn’t realize how hard Stiverne hits and that he was intimidated by his power when he found out the hard way, literally.

Mitt you say Stiverne is only getting better? Well realistically what is the basis for that. I’m going over to cover this bout, the first fight I’ve covered live in two years. My principle concern would be Bermane’s inactivity. He is the type of naturally powerful, very naturally muscled heavyweight who NEEDS activity. If you go and look back at fighters who have that powerful muscular look in the HW division you see that they are almost always at their best when they stay busy. The best modern example being Samuel Peter, who after the one and only long layoff in his career got decked three times by Mccline and after the next long layoff got knocked out by Helenius. Stacey Mckinnley, Peter’s former trainer, regularly held sparring sessions between Stiverne and Peter (many avilable on youtube) he regularly said to me when we spoke that both of those heavyweights NEEDED to remain active in order to be sharp. There is just a certain type of fighter who feeds off of activity and Stiverne is one of them. I really wish Stiverne had taken a bout or two after his highly impressive performance in the first fight. I am seriously worried they layoff is going to affect him negatively. This will be a year out of the ring. Arreola has at least blown away Seth Mitchell, and is also much more experienced at world level. I think Wilder is right. Arreola has kept quiet because he’s taking this very seriously. He knows his people in LA are desperate for him to be the first ever Mexican American heavyweight champion. He knows a loss will sabotage his ranking position and the lucrative, what seemingly is a perrenially promised matchup in the U.S with Wladimir on HBO. Arreola in my humble opinion has a great chance of doing this. He has great punch numbers and an incredible chin. That shot in the 3rd of the first fight was a stonecold knockout punch against almost 90percent of the current division, mayvbe more. Only Chris’ incredible durability got him through. It kind of reminded me of round 5 Peter Vs Maskaev for this very belt, the most historically important. Maskaev threw his ultimate honey punch a crunching sharp right hand straight down on Peter’s left chin. Peter shook it off. Arreola shaking that punch off is significant because Stiverne will likely NEVER land a punch that good on him during the rematch. I like Arreola by decision,

Bermane is only getting better. What makes Chris think anything is going to be different with a world title on the line? The fight is going to be fought at a harder pace because there’s more at stake — and that’s the only thing that will be different, but the differential in ability between the two heavyweights will still be the same.

Arreola should be more careful when he pops those zits on his nose.

So he won’t show up on camera with scabs on his nariz.
