Bermane Stiverne: Chris Arreola is Tailor-Made For Me!

By Mike Coppinger

Bermane Stiverne already handled Chris Arreola with ease. Why would the second time around be any different?

Stiverne (23-1-1, 20 KOs) is seeking to become the first Haitian-born heavyweight champion in history when he faces Arreola on May 10 (ESPN) in a rematch of their one-sided encounter from April 2013.

Stiverne, 35, broke Arreole's nose in Round 4 and cruised to a wide-points victory. This time, a belt -- and history -- are on the line.

"I've been watching Arreola for so long I knew -- and I know still today -- that Arreola is tailor-made for me," Stiverne said during a recent conference call. "I have the style, and I'm able to be smart in the ring and do certain things that he can't do. So to me I just have to prove to whoever thought that it was impossible for me to win the fight, go out there and beat him."

Stiverne wins again, no matter what shape Arreola is in.

[QUOTE=turnedup;14467659]Well then lets hope he learned something from that first fight and tee's off with some uppercuts since you swing so wide and lead with your face. The thing about Bermane is that he hits so hard if you take…

[QUOTE=champion4ever;14467668]He's right. The only two things that Arreola does well is punch and take a punch. Other than that, he is a very limited fighter skill wise. His only chance is for Stiverne, to exchange and trade punches toe to…
