This black white thing really is rubbish . If one refers to the most recent genetic, anthropological, and migratory research it turns out that we are all, at the beginning, African, or, “out of Africa” as they say. I am sure this news will equally disturb both those blacks and whites on the radical racial fringes. It will also give great assurance and succour to those who know instinctively that there is only one species of humans and the racial divide is manufactured not naturally occurring.

So to those yet to have learned this, look it up and get back in the game. Otherwise you will continue to be laughed as those flat earthers were once the orb shape of the earth was confirmed.

I like Arreola he is gutsy and always fun to watch, however the guy appears limited and Stiverne seems to have much more skill as well as power and a good chin too.
Watching the pad men of Stiverne and Arreola was polar opposites! Arreolas pad man was awful, how the hell did he get the job. I have seen chests of drawers react faster lol.
I like both fighters and hope the best man on the night wins and both are healthy and well afterwards.

Wes, you say Stiverne Has to fight someone, but to me it makes little sense in fighting the guy you eliminated in your last fight!
In my view the next 2 highest ranking boxers not including Areolla should have been forced to fight for an eliminator as soon as Vitali’s retirement was announced.
It makes no sense to fight Areolla because there is now the chance that Areolla could become WBC champ having only levelled up with Stiverne………which if it does happen will almost inevitable lead to a 3rd Stiverne vs Areolla grudge match
regarless if Areolla remains champ or not.

This is do or die for Arreola. I think he deserves it. I’m pulling for him, and have just booked my plane tickets so am hoping for a long war in which Arreola prevails

stiverne will have to fight somebody for the vacant belt if not arreola than wilder,jennings, perez, etc. but he has to fight someone you just can’t turn it over to him just because he won a mandatory.

the reason for stiverne long layoff was fighting don king in court.

Posted May 8, 2014 9:38 am 


wes

why would austin fight a wbc eliminator. he did nothing to get that shot. just like leapai did nothing to fight boystov.these eliminator are b.s.

Posted May 8, 2014 9:35 am 


wes

the only reason i don’t want stiverne to win. don king will have a tight hold on that belt. when fights are not mandatory you will have to sign with him to fight for the belt. steiverne will only fight don king fighters. forget about a unifcation fight with wk. that not going to happen.why you think there no a valuev fight with wk. king stop that fight.it will be pretty bad for the heavyweight division if stiverne win.

Areola truly is a useless fat pig who should be rolledonto a charcoal grill and slow roasted for twelvehours, then served with a spicedapple chutney

Stiverne will win by desicion in a close fight,Arreola is a warrior and will bring it but I think at this point in their career’s Stiverne is the better and fresher boxer

MaHeBrokeMyNose

Stiverne will break Arreola’s giant hooter again and stop him this time.This is retribution,Stiverne should already hold that belt,he was held in limbo by Vitali immorally clinging to the belt for over 18 months,then boxing politics making Stiverne have too beat the same guy TWICE to win the belt.Stiverne will be too quick,too strong,TOO GOOD for Arreola.Chris’s face will resemble roadkill at the end of this fight

Sam Peter was never a great fighter, yes he had a granite chin which was later shattered so using Sam Peter as a measure of how great the K2 brothers are is laughable. Vitali lost to Lewis by TKO learn to live with it.

Stiverne appears thinner. If so, it’ll bode well for him coming down the stretch

Posted May 7, 2014 10:18 pm 


te tumbo

as long as Arreola doesn’t physically fall apart, i’m confident that he’ll outbox and outpunch Stiverne. different fight-plan from his go-for-the-KO approach in their first fight. he underestimated Stiverne and had no Plan B. he also never truly gave up hope that he could hurt and finish Stiverne before the final bell, which resulted in desperation. anyway, Cristobal by TKO or UD. he’s done his homework and will apply skill for the “W”.

The term ‘Great White hope was invented by Whites,’ not Blacks. After Deontay Wilder knocks out Vladmir Klitschko, the brief white Hope era will vanish in a puff.

The fact that Arreola, has been given another title shot after losing to the man who eliminated him in the eliminator is only slightly less ludicrous than the WBO putting Leapai forward as their best man to face Wladimir.
Why has Arreola been given another shot at the title?
A quick KO win over the grossly over rated Seth Mitchell does not make up for Arreolas losses to Adamek & Stiverne.
If Arreola does manage to beat Stiverne this time around, it’s hardly fair on Stiverne, who has had to wait ages for Vitali’s decision and has remained inactive as a result.
Stiverne has to beat his opponent twice to lift the vacant crown….Arreola only has to beat his once in 2 attempts.
Awful decision by the WBC!

I’d like to see chris apple pie areola win because he is an action fighter that’s likeable, but i don’t think that will happen if stiverne is in shape. Stivern vs wilder is a better fight in the aftermath, so go!! Stev…

I imagine Stiverne is going to target that nose again.

Posted May 7, 2014 2:13 pm 


Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Best Ever)

This should be more competitive than the first fight. I predict it will be a pretty nasty scrap. Arreola’s nose was broken early in their first bout and that’s a considerable injury in boxing. It hurts bad, totally disrupts your breathing, and takes you out of your game — mentally speaking.

The winner of the WBC can call himself the HW Champion, but we know who the undisputed HW Champion of the World is at this point. And neither Stiverne or Arreola had a snowballs chance in h3ll of dethroning him.

I’m rooting for Arreola, as Stiverne as a Canadian is non-important to boxing.

Arreola don’t own a jab….Stiverne will use it early and often.
There are four jabs, if a man owns two he’s good.
Stiverne to win.

Shattered, he had this hiatus because of Klitschko. We all know the ranking systems of these boxing organizations is BS but let’s be fair to Stiverne. He won not 1 but 2 “elimination” bouts to get a title shot (believe it or not at the time Stiverne Vs. Austin was an eliminator for the #1 ranking and a title shot). So in his mind after defeating Arreola , Only thing on his mind was “finally I get a title shot, let’s bring on Vitali.” It was Vitali that’s been holding the WBC belt hostage for a long time wavering in his decision to go into retirement or box again. So put yourself in Stiverne’s shoes. Why risk fighting another top ten contender (say Wilder for example) in between when you KNOW you have a title shot.

Posted May 7, 2014 10:41 am 


Eric_Suede

This whole thing seems sort of unfair to stiverne. If many of you guys are correct and Arreola pulls this off. It’s as if Stiverne is kind of screwed and will be forgotten about. Seeing that he legitimately beat Chris’s ass the first go round. It would seem fair to me to allow stiverne a rubbermatch in the event he loses. I know many fans don’t want to see that , they’d rather watch the winner of this fight take on Wlad or Wilder but.. I don’t know. Sucks as a boxing fan when you’re a fan of both fighters but you know one has to go home a loser. I like arreola I believe he’s good for boxing (his skill, his willingness to face anyone) whether you think he’s world class or not. I predict a md win for stiverne.

I think that the full year plus of inactivity is going to work against Stiverne–although his career is littered with long periods of inactivity–outside of his first victory over Arreola he really doesn’t have any notable wins.

Arreola seems in great shape and if he hits the ring below 240 I think Stiverne is I’m trouble.

I think Arreola is going to take this one–and I don’t think its gonna be close

in the first 3 rds prior to the broken nose Arreola was pushing Stiverne back against the ropes and landing a great percentage of his shots.

Arreola by UD

Posted May 7, 2014 9:54 am 


Shatterd Dreams

I didn’t know much about Stiverne before the Arreola fight but he impressed me in the way he dealt with the usually hard to beat Arreola. It’s strange after such a big win that his career went into somewhat of a limbo, can’t understand why they allowed the momentum of that victory to be stopped. Even if Bermane beats Arreola he’s only doing what he proved he could do over a year ago, surely he could have been matched with another highly ranked opponent in that time period.

Posted May 7, 2014 9:52 am 


Shatterd Dreams

Pointless fight really being that Stiverne already won the fight last year without any controversy and his career has been in mini hiatus since, ridiculous to think that a year after the first fight their going to be going over the same ground again. This bout is waste of time but i’l still be interested to see who wins.

Stiverne by UD; or late KO

Khan’s Cuz Achmed

First off Stiverne clearly won the first fight. However, without the luck of a very clean shot that broke Arreola’s nose at the end of the third round the outcome may have been very different. I believe Arreola wins with a close decision in this one or possible a late TKO. #KingKhan2014

Arreola was really exposed when a medicore Adamek beat him…I say medicore with Adamek only as a heavyweight,he was a solid world champ lt. heavy..cruiser..but as a heavy,very average at best.Stiverne should win this but he himself isnt that proven so far aswell…

Last chance for CA. A loss for him really puts him in the tough tradesman class. I’m on BS but CA has a chance of sorts but am expecting Bware to take this. Neither get close to klichko who is the real champ. This fight should be for USA title mot a bogus world title
