Arreola Wants To Avenge Losses To Stiverne, Adamek

By Ryan Burton

Heavyweight contender Chris Arreola recently visited with us on BoxingScene Radio to talk about a variety of topics.

In his most recent ring appearance, Arreola started off well against Bermane Stiverne but was knocked down and suffered a broken nose in the third round. Arreola dug down deep and was able to finish the fight but admitted that once he broke his nose, he wasn't able to fight the way he wanted to.

"Once my nose was broken the game plan was out the door.  It wasn't that I couldn't breathe.  Every time he punched me, even if it was on top of the head it was the most excruciating pain I have felt.  I couldn't make my way inside on him to make the fight," Arreola explained.

The Mexican-American fighter has three losses on his record and admits that his losses to Tomasz Adamek and Stiverne really bother him.  His other loss is to Vitaly Klitschko, who is regarded as one of the best two heayvweight fighters of this generation.  Arreola said that he can accept that loss but the other two really bother him and he would like a shot at redemption.

"He (Stiverne) is a very good fighter.  I hate that loss.  I tip my hat to him because he beat me.  I hate that loss like the loss to Adamek though.  Vitaly whooped my ass so I can take that but I feel that I am better than Stiverne and Adamek and I want to avenge those losses," stated Arreola who feels that Vitaly Klitschko will decide not to face Stiverne who is his mandatory opponent.  "I honestly don't think that Stiverne will fight Vitaly.  I think that I will fight Stiverne for the vacant title but I don't want to get ahead of myself.  I have to take care of Mitchell first."

It seemed to me a few years ago like Arreola was going to be the next great American heavy weight but I think is dedication to the sport is inconsistent at best. He should worry about Mitchell before he start…

Adamek is booked for awhile. He has fights lined up with Charlie zelenoff, riddick Bowe, James toney, and Muhammad Ali. Areola will have to wait.

I'd steer clear of a rematch with Stiverne. I could actually see him getting beat easier the second time around.

[QUOTE=anonymous2.0;13710822]He should avenge his first defeat: against the all mighty Burrito and its trainer Beer. Losing to them made him fat and slow.[/QUOTE] Those two will be whipping his arse til they day he dies.
