Arreola: Seth Mitchell will need to bring his football helmet

By Rick Reeno

Heavyweight contender Chris Arreola (35-3, 30KOs) is training in Phoenix for a planned fight against Seth Mitchell (26-1-1, 19KOs) on September 6th at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. Arreola is coming off an unexpected twelve round decision loss to Bermane Stiverne in April. Mitchell avenged the only defeat of his career in June, with a twelve round unanimous decision over Johnathon Banks.

"Seth Mitchell will need to bring his football helmet," Arreola stated in a reference to Mitchell's playing days at Michigan State University. "I'm gonna beat the sh*t out of Seth Michell. I hope he knows that you can't 'play' boxing."

Trainer Henry Ramirez is working Arreola very hard, telling BoxingScene that his fighter will come in weighing under 240-pounds. The last time Arreola was under 240 was against Friday Ahunanya in July of 2011. He weighed 247 for the fight with Stiverne.

"We're training in Phoenix at the Central Boxing Gym. Chris is going to be in real good shape for this fight, under 240. He knows that his back is against the wall and he's going to be in real good shape. Mitchell had a nice win after coming back from a knockout loss, but Johnathon Banks is not Chris Arreola...not the right Chris Arreola. Chris is not going to hurt him and then not throw. [Mitchell] is not athletic enough or enough of a boxer to keep [Arreola] off. Chris is going to suffocate him. His name is Mayhem Mitchell, but on September 6th he's going to be the victim of some mayhem," Ramirez told BoxingScene.com.

Welterweight contender Josesito Lopez (30-6, 18KOs) is also a part of the Phoenix camp. Lopez appears on the undercard against Aaron Martinez (19-2-1, 4KOs).

Seth Mitchell literally put me to sleep in his last fight. I literally fell asleep.

[QUOTE=VatoMulatto;13616747]Arreola could come into this fight completely out of shape and still stop Mitchell inside 5 rounds. I'm surprised Team Mitchell wanted this fight.[/QUOTE] whos that fine girl?

[QUOTE=slicksouthpaw16;13617438]This will be a carbon copy of the Travis Walker fight.[/QUOTE] This is what i think... Mitchell could catch him but arreola will overwhelm after...

Arreola always has a puncher's chance and his back is to the wall and he knows it. Must win fight for him.
