Arreola Praises Stiverne's Speed, Hitting Like a Bulldozer

LOS ANGELES --- Chris Arreola had nothing but respect for Bermane Stiverne after being knocked out in the sixth round on Saturday night at USC's Galen center on ESPN.

Stiverne floored Arreola with a right hand for the first knockdown in the sixth round and it proved to be the beginning of the end. He got knocked down one more time and barely beat the count before a follow-up flurry forced the referee to stop the fight.

"The power is his hand speed," Arreola said. "That's the main power. I didn't see that punch coming at all ... at all. But for reals I didn't see that punch coming. That's his power. It's so fast that when he connects it's like a bulldozer. It hurts. It didn't hurt me, but, 'Oh sh--, I'm on the ground.' So that's what he has. His main power is his speed. It's blinding. You don't really see it. I didn't see that right hand coming."

How does Arreola feel Stiverne would do against Deontay Wilder, the WBC's mandatory challenger at heavyweight, or Wladimir Klitschko, the WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion?

"Wilder, to me, hasn't proved himeself," Arreola said. "So Bermane would easily take him out. Klitschko? I wouldn't know. I haven't fought him, but I guarantee you he would give him a run for his money. He ain't know (Alex) Leapai. That's for sure."

I missed the post fight interview, but I thought Chris had cut out the junk food and beer etc? Is he now vowing to go 'clean' again? Only himself to blame on that one. Nearly every one of the body shots Stiverne landed had Chris backing up. Good fight while it lasted and if Chris had more head m...

what a bunch of pathetic twats are on this thread! Every excuse in the book, castigating Chris...just shut your pieholes azzwypes. It was a good fight and Stiverne did a great job as did Chris. Bermaine moves pretty good he mighjt be able to get to Vlad if he does not get hugged to death.

[QUOTE=ariemers]So will we finally see Wladimir Klitschko fight someone who isn't a complete idiot or undersized? Or will we what until Stiverne is 40. Fight now it's hot[/QUOTE] Wlad will still have 5 inches in height and about 7 inches in reach on Stiverne, lol

[QUOTE=Holywarrior]Yeah, the guy hits like a truck. Klitschko hit arreola a billion times and couldn't drop him[/QUOTE] Could it be Klitschko crack the Pinta and Stiverne broke it. Pacquiao took big shots from Cotto Maragarito, Mosley and they never phase him but he got knock out by Marquez wh...

one thing has me confused. a guy like stiverne at 35 does not fight for a year gets in the ring and does not get tired at all arreola does. just like broner beaten from pillar to post and maidana is the one who gets tired. Bradley also out on his feet for 4 rounds savagely beaten down in the 12th...
