Arreola vs Stiverne Heading To a Purse Bid on Saturday

By Francisco Salazar

A purse bid will take place this Saturday to see who will promote the possible elimination bout between Heavyweights Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne, promoter Dan Goossen told Boxingscene.com.

"The purse bid will take place on Saturday in Las Vegas," said Goossen, Arreola's promoter.

Arreola was previously rumored to fight at Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 10th. However, a possible fight with Stiverne could push the fight back later in the fall.

Arreola is reportedly already training in his hometown of Riverside.

Should the fight be made between Arreola and Stiverne, the winner will earn the right to challenge current WBC heavyweight champion Vitaly Klitschko. On September 8th, Klitschko successfully defended the title, stopping Manuel Charr in the fourth round in Moscow.

Arreola is currently ranked number one by the WBC, while Stiverne is ranked at number two. He (35-2, 20 KOs) knocked out Eric Molina in the first round of his last fight on February 18th. He has won his last seven fights in a row since his close 12 round majority decision to Tomasz Adamek in April of 2012.

If the fight is made between Stiverne and he comes out victorious, Arreola will hope to avenge his first defeat at the hands of Klitschko back in September of 2009.

The Haitian-born Stiverne (22-1, 20 KOs) has nowhere near fought the level of opposition that Arreola has fought in his career. His most notable victory was a 10th round stoppage victory over former contender Ray Austin.

Stiverne was victorious in his last fight on April 14th, winning an eight round unanimous decision over Willie Herring. He is unbeaten in his last 11 bouts since a fourth round stoppage loss to Demetrius King in July of 2007.

How on earth are you #1 contender for the WBC if you haven't fought for so long. Answer, fixed rankings by Don Sulli. Chris Arreola sucks. Can't beat elite fighters beats bums for higher rankings. Fixed, Fixed, Fixed!!!

Chris does more cussing than boxing. What Chris Arreola needs to do is fight Deontay Wilder. Chris will never beat W.Klitschko he is to short. Just wants a payday, case close.

Stiverne is one of many good fighters Don King ruined by keeping them inactive. :sad:

Stiverne is awful, very fortunate he landed that ko shot on Austin to stop him he was getting totally out boxed by the old man.
