I don’t have time for your nonsense.
Being in shape and building your body into it’s best shape are two entirely different things!

Truth hurts

Arreola should win this with ease

deLima…Arreola doesn’t lack motivation! It doesn’t take years to get in shape…only a few month!

Arreola by KO !!!!!!!!!!!

@patrick-the thing is, I do know what kind of shape Nightmare is coming in and where his mind frame is. Seth is a good guy and has a strong heart but let me tell you that CA is gonna run through him like a freight train. Doesn’t matter what mind frame Seth is in. The only thing SM has is a one punchers chance and that’s all ill give him and He doesn’t hit harder then Bermane.

For those defending Arreoloa, while it is true Chris bounced back after his loss to Klitschko, you must keep in mind he’s now 32-years old, hasn’t maintained the strictest training regiment, and is at least a couple/few fights away from a title shot (something that can steal motivation). Add in the recent beat-down he suffered and, again, you could have an Arreola who isn’t the nightmare he used to be. Not that Mitchell is a world-beater, but Mitchell may show up being the hungrier fighter and one who has taken another step up, or two, on the skill ladder. I’m just saying this fight could be more competitive than many think.

That sucks, lol…

Ernie, its gotta be “nipple”, singular. To be plural his last name would have to be arreolas. Hahahahaha this is hilarious.

Posted August 11, 2013 4:22 am 


Bad, bad, bad, move for team Mitchell. Say what you want about Arreola, but the guy hits hard, has a solid chin, and never stops throwing punches. That is a recipe for disaster for Mitchell who seems to get wobbled by every shot that he gets hit with. Unlike Banks, if Arreola hurts Mitchell he will close the show.

Actually it’s “Nipples”…

Posted August 11, 2013 2:26 am 


How in Sam Hill did Arreola get the nickname the “nipple”! Theyr putting me on right?

Posted August 11, 2013 1:32 am 


Patrick2, I understand your point, Grant syndrome happens. I just don’t see it happening to Cris. Vitali beats people till they’re dead. He came back in the next 9 fights and KO’d pretty much everyone losing only one in a virtual draw to Adamek. Also, Vitali stopped him in 10. Arreola went the distance with Stiverne.

Arreola got this. Only question is how long it lasts. Probably not longer than 3 rounds.

Posted August 10, 2013 11:25 pm 


I wouldn’t be suprised to see Mitchell win this one. Arreola relies too much on early power. He lacks discipline and he’s not mentally tough. Get passed 4 rounds with him and you can beat him easily.

@patrick-lol….Chris is on a totally different level then those fighters your referring to about being broken. He got busted up last fight believe when I say that Seth or any other fighter for that matter, including Stiverne, will get the best of him again. At this point, CA is coming to take that title and he’s gonna go through anyone to get it; far from being broken. Ruthless vatos

Posted August 10, 2013 10:29 pm 


Arreola fights with himself on the scale. Mitchell is not on this level yet, Arreola should win by KO inside of 5 rounds. If he loses he should hang em up.

Posted August 10, 2013 9:06 pm 


Arreola with good skills, strong heart and desire SHOULD win this. However, the wild card is the brutal beating Chris recently took from Stiverne. Chris could enter this bout a broken fighter? It’s happened many, many times before — a solid fighter gets thrashed in a bout and emerges with the spirit and mindset of ‘now I’m just an opponent.’ We’ll soon find out if this has happened to Arreola.

If the winner gets Wilder, Seth should take a dive.

Posted August 10, 2013 6:57 pm 


It doesn’t matter what shape Arreola is in. He’s gonna beat the piss outta Mitchell. He doesn’t even need to train for the fight. Arreola is WAY too much for Mitchell.

@de lima-your right. With that in mind, watch CA comein super good shape for this slaughter. Stay tuned bro

de Lima I.

He will come in better shape? I wouldn’t be so sure about that!
CA’s problem is his lack of discipline and motivation. He’s unwilling to discipline his body by regular exercise and by abstinence.
Some boxers just don’t realize how important training, correct nutrition and enough rest is and they step into the ring at less than a hundred percent fighting shape. Sleep is also an important factor. Sleep = gains in muscle strength and size.
Building your body into it’s best shape takes years! Years of discipline and sacrifice. That’s the price of success.

murderman: Thank you very much, my friend!!! But I could be totally wrong about this assessment, so we’ll see on Sept. 6th. I’ll keep kickin’ that science as long as at least a few guys are willing to listen. I’d like to think that my boxing knowledge is infinite, but I’m just a work in progress who’s still learning more all the time.

But that’s a HUGE compliment that will not be soon forgotten. You actually have me thinking more about more about starting a new boxing website/forum all the time! The only skill set that I’m lacking, in order to get if off the ground, is web development/graphic design. Peace, strength and blessings to you!

I see Good

RUFFKNOGHT wishfull thinking I KNOW the USA is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo desperate for a TITLE in the Heavy Weight division. Lets STRIP Vlad.. Why NOT strip WARD???? Hes hurt but HOW long can you be inactive and hold your title??? Dont WORRY once the K brothers hang them up. Send ALL belts to Broke ass ENGLAND. Gift wrap them and send them to LOUD MOUTH DAVID HAYE. Hes the best of the bunch as much as I hate to admit it. A blown up light heavy weight he is. But still the BEST once the K brothers retire. Keep WISHING USA keep desperately wishing

I see there’s still something wrong with my FB posts. It’s pretty annoying!

Posted August 10, 2013 1:12 pm 


Well Stiverne is #1 wbc and should fight Vitali. Arreola and Mitchell are #2 and #3. So if Vitali should suddenly decide to retire or gets stripped of it, then the winner of this bout will fight for the title. So we might see Arreola-Stiverne II.

wbc sorry bunch

Rod I am surprised that you included “Tua vs Ustinov” in your list of “really good fights”……..whilst there is no doubt there is interest to see how a well past his peak Tua will fare against the the very slow lumbering giant in Ustinov………I’d hardly call it a “really good fight”.
At best I’d say Tua vs Ustinov” is a a fight of mild interest……especially now that Wilder is the KO king of current time NOT Tua…….so IF Vitali does choose Tua as a mandatory I suspect many fans would much rather see a young fit fast and physically big hard hitting boxer take on Vitali rather than anything Tua has to offer.

@ sc – damn!!!!! Keep kicking that science my friend!! You know you really need to consider start your own boxing forum or blog! Yourboxing knowledge is infinite! Peace and blessings!

@octovius- it’s not about fighting for a title, it’s about Seth Mitchell not being the heavyweight that “they” wanted/expectin him to be. When CA lost to BS, he was sent back two spots, becoming number 3 in the world while Seth is at number two. Since CA is more of an exciting fighter with more potential then SM,not to mention more of a chin, “they” are cashing out on him.

@squared circle-just curious, what’s your boxing background? Amateur, pro,fun; maybe your just a fan of the game?

Would love to see this fight after being over in LA for the Stiverne fight a few months back. A great bit of matchmaking and should be very entertaining while it lasts. I’d expect Chris to be a bit too much for Mitchell at this point.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

murderman: You have a good point there, player. I missed Arreola’s last couple fights, so really have no idea how heavy he is now. I’m not a big Arreola fan by any means and never have been, so that’s not why I’m predicting that he beats Mitchell.

I’m predicting he beats Mitchell because Cristobal has only been stopped once in his career — by a still prime Vitali Klitschko who would’ve stopped just about anyone in history at that time. So, CA actually has a pretty damn good chin and a lot of heart — although he seems to lack discipline and is a natural fat boy with a physique more suited for Sumo Wrestling.

In a way, I would like to see Seth win and continue to do well because he’s a former college football player (Big D), just like us. But I’ve seen some weaknesses in his two fights with Banks that lead to me believe he has considerable limitations. Of utmost concern, it appears that he has a fragile jaw that’s quite vulnerable to a guy with power who can bang.

I thought Banks had Seth wobbled and hurt about 3 times in their last fight, and Banks is no power puncher. In fact, “Titties” Arreola has a much higher KO % (79%) than Banks (59%).

Secondly, Seth got a very late start in boxing and is still trying to get master the basic fundamentals. At times, his technique looks pretty raw and amateurish to me.

Third, Seth is carrying too much muscle mass (like us), form all those years of football and power-lifting. And in reality, that tends to limit his stamina in the middle to late rounds. I thought it looked like he was wearing concrete shoes towards the end of his last fight, as his foot work was slow as molasses.

But you make a good point! if Arreola doesn’t take this fight seriously, doesn’t really care anymore, and shows up weighing 270 + lbs, he could lose and even get KO’d. We’ll have to see where his head is at after that big loss to Stiverne.

The heavyweight division IS booming rod… The deadwood like Liakhovich, Rahman, Chisora, Scott, Helenius, Tua, Ustinov, Solis, Johnson, Cunningham, Povetkin, etc. are being ushered out… Guys like Wilder, Haye, Pulev, and Fury are being swept in.

If Arreola survives his match with Mitchell, I want to see him fight Deontay Wilder… Possibly Chris could last 6 or 7 rounds.

Posted August 10, 2013 4:42 am 


So u saying he can come in out of shape like his past few fights and still win? Dude is good. But not good enough to just keep showing up out of shape expecting to win.

Posted August 10, 2013 3:45 am 


No murderman, it doesn’t depend on that. Get the house eon CA cos Seth has no chance. Nice guy and all but….

Posted August 10, 2013 3:40 am 


@sc- depends on which arreola shows up! If comes in half way decent shape he k.o.’s mitchell. If he is not in shape like his last fight he may get his nose broke again. I think he will come in better shape so im picking arreola. Who you like?

Posted August 10, 2013 3:08 am 


Tua vs Ustinov, Wilder just took out Sergi, Pulev vs Thomson, Haye vs Fury and now this. Some really good fights. The HW division is booming.

Mitchell will likely get stopped in this fight — again.

Banks could’ve stopped him twice if he would’ve kept his foot on the gas in their last fight.
