Las Vegas (April 10, 2014) Top rated heavyweight contender BERMANE “B. Ware” STIVERNE will make an appearance tomorrow night, Friday, APRIL 11th, leaving his training camp at the Mayweather Boxing Club in Las Vegas, Nevada to discuss his upcoming WBC World Heavyweight Championship fight on this weeks’ edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights presented by Corona Extra (10 p.m. ET, ESPN2) and Noche de Combates presentado por Corona Extra (10:30 p.m., ESPN Deportes) from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.
ESPN boxing reporter Bernardo Osuna will interview Stiverne on ESPN2 and Noche de Combates studio hosts Claudia Trejos and Leopoldo González will interview Stiverne on ESPN Deportes.
Stiverne, 23-1-1 (20 KO’s) of La Plaine, Haiti will meet CHRIS “The Nightmare” ARREOLA,” 36-3-0 (31 KO’s) of Riverside, California for the vacant World Boxing Council (‘WBC’) Heavyweight Championship in “FIGHT FOR PEACE HEAVYWEIGHT HISTORY” on Saturday, May 10th at the USC Galen Center on the campus of the University of Southern California which will be telecast live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes. Stiverne and Arreola are currently ranked #1 and #2 in the world respectively by the WBC.
Alluding to Arreola comments from their first bout in April 2013, won by Stiverne, the Florida resident stated, “It’s not about being in shape as Arreola claims he wasn’t the first time. I’ve got the skills and I’m always in shape.”
Further about the bout once again being in Southern California, Stiverne continued, “I’ve fought all over the world, the ring will be the same and when the bell rings it’s just the two of us and the outcome will be the same as well.”
“FIGHT FOR PEACE HEAVYWEIGHT HISTORY” presented by Don King Promotions and Goossen Tutor Promotionis a fitting international tribute to the battle for the vacant World Boxing Council Heavyweight Championship of the World previously held by longtime champion Vitali Klitschko who stepped away from boxing officially in December 2013 to focus on the 2014 Ukrainian Presidential Election.
