@ Dionysus: Thanks my friend!Posted September 13, 2013 1:57 am
Seth with a good record, just won a revenge match against his only loss… Considered to be a top American. Arreola coming of a defeat… That’s whatPosted September 12, 2013 2:41 pm
Dionysus, so what exactly did Seth Mitchell have to offer for Arreola???Posted September 12, 2013 2:33 pm
Well, I think it’s the combination that he has nothing to offer, it’s a step back and their is on some level a questionable amount of danger for anyone who fights wilder. You habeem a good weekend too bro.Posted September 12, 2013 7:07 am
@ Dionysus: I agree. I’d still like to see Arreola fight him but I’m like you- I think it’d be a backwards step for Arreola. I’d like to see Arreola CRUSH Wilder like he did Mitchell, and I think he would. It’d just all weird to me because I’m quite sure Arreola would knockout Wilder quickly, yet he doesn’t want to fight him, but I think it’s like you said, it’d be a backwards step. I think Arreola just has bigger fish to fry. Have a good weekend.Posted September 12, 2013 3:37 am
Yeah, the fight they had I mean. Cris didn’t run from VK who was much more proven and had a far stronger resume and a belt. Wilder has nothing to offer Arreola and it’d be a step backwards because Wilder has nobody of reference to show why he deserves Arreola. I firmly believe if its not Arreola, some other guy with no fear is gonna take to running across te ring and maul Wilder on the inside(Tyson Like) and Wilder will react like Lucien Bute against Froch.Posted September 12, 2013 12:36 am
@ Dionysus: Areola’s gonna fight Vitali AGAIN?! I’m a big Arreola fan but I don’t think he’ll beat Vitali. Hopefully you’re talking about their first fight. I do think Arreola has a better chance with Wlad, but Arreola needs to avenge the Stiverne loss. Still kinda wondering why Arreola doesn’t want to fight Wilder, but maybe it is a step backwards. Your thoughts?Posted September 11, 2013 11:49 pm
Tark, you repeated exactly what I said in your own rewording. Only one thing you omitted, what does he have that would be worth while for Arreola? He has nothing and it would be a step backwards. It’s a risk too. But I think Cris has taken a bigger risk fighting a much tougher opponent in VK. It was worth it though, because of what Vitali had to offer that Wilder does not.Posted September 11, 2013 10:26 pm
@ KL: Hey man, you might be right. It is weird that Arreola doesn’t want to fight Wilder, because he says he’s not afraid of anything. You have a VERY good point KL. I still think Arreola would beat Wilder though. @ CHRIS ARREOLA: FIGHT DEONTAY WILDER!!Posted September 11, 2013 1:21 pm
Anonymous, Wilder has called out Areola, so you know at least Wilder is game about getting in with a decent opponent, you can’t knock Wilder for that…..even if you think he is a fraud.Posted September 11, 2013 10:25 am
Bluesman, nobody is going to know what the situation would be regarding Vitali and the WBC belt for at least 4 months……so any potential rematch with Stiverne isn’t going to be available probably at the earliest March 2014.
Arreola wants nothing to do with Wilder. Arreola has never lost to a fellow American. The only 2 American contenders I see being brave enough to get int with Wilder is Tony “Tiger” Thompson or Johnathon Banks.Posted September 11, 2013 10:02 am
Wilder needs to step up his quality (there has been none of that so far) of opposition. He should either fight Bryant Jennings or Andy Ruiz. Arreola wants to fight Stiverne so he can avenge that loss and get a title shot. Saying Arreola is ducking Wilder is like saying that Vitali Klitshcko was ducking Hasim Rahman back when Vitali postponed his fight with Rahman due to injuries- in other words: SILLY, UNFOUNDED & RIDICULOUS.Posted September 11, 2013 5:09 am
Arreola would CRUSH Wilder. Wilder hasn’t fought anyone of note and so far has been fighting people who aren’t even 1/4 worthy of the Bum Of the Month Club that Joe Louis had. Wilder is untested.Posted September 11, 2013 5:03 am
Dionysus.., Arreola didn’t run from Vitali.. That was a title fight and Vitali was 38 years old. That’s the age Ali was when he fought Holmes. What are you fighting for if you won’t take 5 million dollars and a shot at the Heavyweight Championship???
But Wilder is a young guy and a very powerful puncher. Yes. Chris is duckin’Posted September 11, 2013 2:04 am
Wilder’s chin needs to be tested, but he shouldn’t do it against Arreola. If he has a Seth-Mitchell chin it could be bad. Wilder should fight Jonathan Banks to make sure he has some kind of a chin.Posted September 10, 2013 11:28 pm
And that my friend,…. Is like polishing a turd. It will accomplish nothing.Posted September 10, 2013 10:49 pm
If Arreola fought Wilder for peanuts and smashed him out and stopped the wilder hype propaganda machine in its tracks. The feedback would be swift about Arreola beating a guy who was untested and nothing more than a bum-slayer.Posted September 10, 2013 10:41 pm
NOT going to fight him… Wilder will have to find another contender because Chris is chicken.Posted September 10, 2013 9:54 pm
We do not even know if Wilder can go 5 rounds. Arreola will put on the pressure and be in Wilders face, and that will take away the Wilder ability to land a right bomb. Plus I don’t think Wilder likes to get hit, and Arreola will hit him and the inclose fighting will be dominated by Arreola. Arreola is all fighter and will take the skinny guy Wilder. For gosh sakes Arreola got up, he got up from that Stiverne right hand bomb that broke his nose in four places and went on to loose a ud only by way of his game plan changing because he could not breathe through his nose. Anybody else would have stayed on the mat and been counted out by that Stiverne punch. Arreola takes out Wilder!!!Posted September 10, 2013 7:20 pm

UK, keep clinging to s**t from 15 years ago, idiot. Wilder is a FRAUD and he will be exposed as such as soon as he fights someone ranked. Tired of the hype.Posted September 10, 2013 3:38 pm
TJ.., Don’t compare me with Hecdog man… He’s a one-note pony who loves Pacquiao and hates Mayweather.
I like both Pacquiao and Mayweather.. I like Canelo too.. In fact I was a big fan of Tommy Hearns, Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran, and Muhammad Ali — all those old boys people always accuse me of hating on.
I just try to get people to be realistic and see both sides of a matchup. People always venerate the old boys and bash contemporary fighters. It was no different 50 years ago. Boxing, like every other sport, makes small gains in technique, equipment, and training methodology from generation to generation.
If that WERE NOT true there would be as many Olympic records that were set in the 1960’s as were set in 2012. And there’s always excuses for the losses of the venerated idols of the past, “The heat beat Sugar Ray…not Maxim.” and “Don’t speak ill of faithfully departed ATGs” … whatever.
If Floyd loses he will be bashed and trashed with irrational exuberance for days, weeks, months, and years—or until Floyd haters keel over from exhaustion. No excuses work when you’re talking about contemporary fighters. It’s fair game to rip them up, down, and sideways until the cows come home.Posted September 10, 2013 3:36 pm
I have a hard time believing that. His management knows SOMETHING! Whether he’s chinny or not smart/able to learn things, runs out of gas quick… Something is up!Posted September 10, 2013 2:44 pm

Hey we must give the 2008 Olympic Bronze medalist Deontay Wilder som decent credit. He have won 29 fights ALL by KO, knocked-out former WBO world heavyweight champ Sergie Liakhovich in 1 round along with KO’d former world title challangers Audley Harrison 1st round (yeah not great) and Owen Beck inside 3 rounds. The guy has great streangh and punchpower and his height of 201cm and big reach of 213cm all tells he has some advantages. His only problem is that he lacks longer round expearence and that he started his PRO career a bit later. His chin? well that is about to see but I guess its nothing wrong with it more then any else top heavyweight. I would love to see Wilder take out Chris Arreola early.Posted September 10, 2013 2:20 pm
Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)
I’m not going to waste my time talking about Wilder until he actually beats a contender ranked in the Top 15-20. For all we know he has a glass jaw and will dropped like a bad habit the first time he steps into the ring with a ranked Super HW with serious skills, power and a solid chin.Posted September 10, 2013 1:31 pm

To the poster below who believes Tark’s fantasy regarding the training of several champion fighters:
He may have, but he just can’t remember their names. He’s been asked several times, but just can’t remember, basically that means it’s just more of his bs…Posted September 10, 2013 11:05 am

rod thanks broPosted September 10, 2013 10:43 am
I would give Wilder a better chance of beating Klitschko than Fury. As much as I trash Wilder for his faux record, he has a massive punch and I not anyone else can dispute that. I think if he landed that on pretty much anyone it would be a real bad day. He’s just not polished (at least this far). Fury on te other hand is a bit more polished and is light on his feet, but he lacks big power and even though he is somewhat polished he is still nowhere near the caliber of polished that Wlad is. So I would actually say he has little to no chance of beating Wlad in my opinion.Posted September 10, 2013 10:21 am
The Heavyweight Division, whilst still relatively short of actual talent, at least appears to be starting to display a little competitiveness that has been sorely lacking for many years. Deontay Wilder is powerful and athletic but is yet to face a threat worthy of his potential.
uk interesting comment. I think any reasonably good heavy with brutal KO power is a threat to wlad. Styles make figthts and wlad for all of his victories has only fight 1 tall heavy, Wach and he was super slow. Maybe Fury or Wilder have a good chance, much better than Pianetta, Chambers or Mormeck.Posted September 10, 2013 10:03 am

Murphy… I know you probably think I’m fooling around here, but I can assure you I’m dead serious about this. This isn’t the first time I’ve pulled an internet tough guy up about this kind of thing. I’ve done this a number times before. Of course pretty much everyone I’ve ever thrown down the gauntlet to balks out as some as they realize I’m not messing. To be fair one guy actually did have a big pair of cojones on him and met up and ended up throwing down. I kicked his ass all across the shop though. And that’s exactly what I’m going to you if you show too. I’m going to beat the snot out of you and instil some manners in you the hard way. Just give me the time, date and location and I’m there.Posted September 10, 2013 8:08 am
When I see Deontay I see a 6’7″ boxer with power, and I use the term boxer rather lightly.
Okay he’s up and coming. He needs to develop real skills. Learn the basics of the importance of the jab as a real weapon and simply throw the tried and true one two combination.
Anyone who thinks Wilder is hype hasn’t watched his fights. This kid has KO power like the young George Foreman. He doesn’t just knock people out he knocks them senseless – every time.
You don’t know when its coming but when it does (generally in the first two rounds) its goodnightPosted September 10, 2013 8:03 am

People are talking like Arreola is new and improved. Seth Mithchell I will give credit to him for making it this far in Boxing, but he is a football player not a Boxer. Mitchell’s lack of technique and lack of Ameture background is why he has looked bad against skilled fighters. Arreola beating Mitchell means nothing. All of a sudden he’s a top contender. Remenber his fight with VK he didn’t even win a round. I would like to see Arreola fight Wilder and winner should face Stirverne. Arreola is already ducking Wilder Mexican Warrior my —…Posted September 10, 2013 6:50 am
I hope it does happen for entertainment purposes, arreola beating Mitchell shows how irrelevant to world boxing that the American heavyweight division is, wilder has the nerve to call fraudley Harrison a step up in his career,seth Mitchell was the big prospect and then he got beat by wladimirs trainer lol, arreola who has already been beaten by adamek and vitali beats Mitchell, this is hilarious, I really want to see this fight even though its irrelevant, the American heavyweights are in their own bubble as they cant even seem to decide between them who the best heavyweight isPosted September 10, 2013 6:43 am
All I can say is one day Wilder will …get a fight with a number one contender ,,,,if he
stays on track with his ko records ….and I am sure he will. The title shot will come.
Wilder will keep his K.O record in tact who the Champ is at the time will be …..KNOCK
OUT by a crashing blow from a hugh right hand …..Facts Walds Klits jaw is China its
been cracks 3 TIMES….Ross Purrity ,,Corriey Sanders ,,and a one eye fighter from

Man the WBC heavyweight ranks have problems. Chris Arreola mabey deserves another world title fight if he keeps buissy in the ring and is motivated then why not BUT if he would ever win the WBC title, then we will see a short time with Arreola as a champion. He lacks that extra dicipline and for the matter, don’t have any special skills either.Posted September 10, 2013 6:37 am
Here is what is simple and many don’t want to hear … I love Mike Tyson, but the guy road the train all the way to Bum Street and Has Been BLVD. when he did finally get off, he and decided to meet up with a top ranked fighter, disaster happened,… Repeatedly. It’s not like that stopped happening, look at Malik Scott, 35-0 nobody really knew he was breathing. Fought another virtually unknown but 14-0 fighter (Glazkov) to a draw and then fought Chisora and was(what to tend to think was Controversially) stopped. But he’s an older fighter and at 35-0 getting his first network TV fight and nobody knowing him or anyone he’s fought seems to show as an Achilles heel for him as he just now attempts to step up competition. Wilder 8 years of boxing! 35 am.

Vultures are an ecologically vital group of birds that face a range of threats in many areas that they occur. Populations of many species are under pressure and some species are facing extinction.
The International Vulture Awareness Day has grown from Vulture Awareness Days run by the Birds of Prey Programme in South Africa and the Hawk Conservancy Trust in England, who decided to work together and expand the initiative into an international event.
It is now recognised that a co-ordinated international day will publicise the conservation of vultures to a wider audience and highlight the important work being carried out by the world’s vulture conservationists.
On 7th September 2013, the aim is for each participating organisation to carry out their own activities that highlight vulture conservation and awareness. This website, established in July 2009, provides a central place for all participants to outline these activities and see the extent of vulture conservation across the worldPosted September 10, 2013 6:30 am

McMURPHY, I HAVE A BETTER IDEA than you and TARK trying to bash each other’s heads in….
He has stories going back to the great SUGAR RAY ROBINSON and MANNY STEWARD and could probably tell you stuff that would be gold dust!
I had a run-in with TARK that spanned over 200 posts initially over my hero TOMMY HEARNS and then spilled out to MARVELOUS MARVKN HAGLER, but after a few misunderstandings on both parts I actually respect (but not always agree with) TARK, because he has a mind of is own and is not scared to challenge people or beliefs if he disagrees and gives reasons why he disagrees.
This would be a far better way to spend your $250 and if you think you haven’t got value you can ask for a refund and then let us all know on ESB….
TARK is a genuine fan, much like HECDOG who truly believes what he says no matter what ridicule he may get from other posters!

It shows how far the American heavyweight scene has fallen that anyone would even be talking about Deontay Wilder yet. He should be a prospect at best and instead he’s your best hope.

It makes total sense to move up and go for the bigger bucks and a title than to get in the ring for a much smaller purse and no world title. Good career decisions is what it’s all about, not taking the ridiculous advice from idiots who consider it ducking on a website, and have no actual professional experience, be it a fighter, trainer, promoter or manager. A fighter in Chris’ position would be stupid to take a lesser fight. He can fight those bums on the way down if he desires…Posted September 9, 2013 10:13 pm

But he’s talking about an immediate rematch with Stiverne to fight for the potentially vacant WBC strap if Vitali retires. So I’ll bet he waits around even though a maybe scenario like that isn’t worth waiting for IMO. BTW did Wilder confirm he wants this fight or is it just the TV execs?Posted September 9, 2013 7:10 pm
I would like to see chris and wilder fight, it would at least answer some questions about wilder that we have all been wondering. Is chris a top shelf heavy weight, no but he is way above any fighter wider has faced to date. I just cant get excited to see a wilder fight because I know going into his fights what will happen before the bell rings and thats boring.

Richy – and DW will duck him LOLPosted September 9, 2013 5:48 pm
Lets give arreola another shot, if wilder toasts him he is done, if he toasts wilder then we know wilder doesn’t have the goods. As a side note butterbean has just moved into the top 30 heavyweights.Posted September 9, 2013 4:36 pm
I don think Arreloa will go near Wilder, Wider power has everyone running except that nut job Chisora.Posted September 9, 2013 4:27 pm
People who know have questioned Wilder’s chin, which tells us he’s probably been KO’d in sparring, even if nobody publicly is willing to admit it. And he was floored pretty hard by a mediocre journeyman a while back. So, until I see Wilder successfully deal with some real adversity in the ring I think we’re dealing with the American version of David Price – an Olympian medalist with a lot of hype who gets KO’d when he fights someone who can take his shots and punch back. In fact, Tony Thompson wouldn’t be a bad next fight for Wilder, but I doubt Wilder’s people would put him in with the Tiger.Posted September 9, 2013 4:15 pm
Wilder’s people should put him in there with someone he can’t KO just to make sure he can actually go rounds. I agree with Steve Farhood and Doug Fischer that someone like Dominic Guinn would be good for this. Then, if Wilder can actually deal with someone who can take punches and doesn’t gas out, put him in with someone like Arreola, Chisora, or the winner of Haye-Fury. But I still don’t think Wilder is ready for the big boys of the division just yet.Posted September 9, 2013 4:12 pm
If wilder has a chin, arreola loses by lopsided decisionPosted September 9, 2013 3:24 pm
The heavyweight division is laughable today. If you’re excited to see Arreola vs Wilder, great, but the hey day of Heavyweight boxing was during the 70′s, 80′s and 90′s. I know it’s a different time now, but these guys would have been sparring partners back then. The Klitchko brothers have been dominating lately and will continue to do so if they continue, but the next generation of heavyweights doesn’t seem very exciting. Hopefully there’s a young kid in the gym today that will be the next great heavyweight champion. I heard that there’s actual camps that are recruiting football players to develop as boxers. Hmm…Seth Mitchel as Ed Too Tall Jones did workout to well. What’s next Basketball players? I’m glad the lower weight divisions are still around and exciting.Posted September 9, 2013 3:00 pm
Why are people saying that Wilder’s handlers are scared of this and that? He’s eventually going to face the best, they we’re just taking it slow. Maybe too slow. However he’s ready folks. There’s not a more exciting prospect out. Why the hate? No need to answer.Posted September 9, 2013 2:47 pm
ITS TIME TO SCRAP HEAVYWEIGHT BOXING,ITS LONG OVERDUE.Posted September 9, 2013 2:42 pm
I think arreola will get toasted in 1 or 2 rounds against wilder but lets make it happen, lol. boomPosted September 9, 2013 2:17 pm
Should happen, but doubt it will. Wilders handlers are scared of putting him in with anyone who has power and a good chin.Posted September 9, 2013 1:55 pm
It’s a shame boxing fans can’t vote on fight match ups, If that were the case, I’m pretty sure aWilder v Arreola v would be far more popular than a Stivern v Arreola 2…….or a Vitali v Arreola 2.Posted September 9, 2013 1:26 pm
If Vitaili Klitchko either a) retires or b) successfully defends against Stiverne and then retires, one of which is extremely likely, then that leaves Arreola in a position where his next fight is for the WBC title. So how would it make sense for him to fight Deontay Wilder instead?Posted September 9, 2013 12:52 pm
