By Adrian Hernandez: This Saturday night on February 18th, at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX, WBC #1 ranked Heavyweight Chris Arreola (34-2, 28 KOs) will make his long awaited return to the ring in a WBC title eliminator bout versus Rio Grande Valley, TX, native Eric “The Drummer Boy” Molina (18-1, 14 KOs).
Although Arreola’s ultimate prize is to win a Heavyweight World Championship, he realizes that he cannot look past a dangerous puncher like Molina.
“There is no Klitschko fight without him. I have to beat Molina to get a title shot. So I can’t look past him. Why would I look past him? If I do look past him then there is no title shot and it’s me back at the bottom working my way back up again.”
The live triple-header will feature Two-Time World Champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams versus Nobuhiro Ishida of Japan, IBF Light Heavyweight Champion Tavoris Cloud against former title holder Gabriel Campillo, and WBC Heavyweight title contender Chris Arreola.
The February 18th, event is scheduled to take place at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX, and will be televised live on Showtime Championship Boxing and Showtime Extreme.
