Arreola-Stiverne Rematch Ordered For Vacant WBC Title
The WBC Board of Governors has finished its voting procedure to determine the steps to fill the heavyweight world championship after Vitali Klitschko has been confirmed as WBC Emeritus Champion while he focuses on his political campaign for the presidency of Ukraine.
It has been decided to order immediate free negotiations between No. 1 ranked contender and WBC Silver world champion Bermane Stiverne and No. 2 ranked contender and WBC International champion Chris Arreola for the vacant WBC heavyweight world championship.
A series of fights will be ordered as final elimination bouts to confirm the two mandatory challengers for the division.

If theyre going to go ahead and give away the title, it should be Stiverne-Fury. Id like to see Stiverne-Arreola II and Wilder-Fury, with the winners fighting each other for title. In a perfect world, that is.Comment by iniduoh on 12-20-2013
Stiverne by KO, this is easy work for the ole boy.Comment by Starof David on 12-20-2013
Odd but Stiverne will be considered the guy that chased Vitali Klitschko out of boxing.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (35)
