Bermane Stiverne in Top Shape, Ready For Ray Austin

By Richard Cloutier

This coming Saturday at the Family Arena in St. Louis, Missouri, heavyweight contender Bermane Stiverne (20-1-1) will have the chance to become the mandatory challenger to the WBC world title. Stiverne faces American veteran Ray Austin (28-5-4) for the WBC's Silver championship.

"I was with Bermane in St. Louis," said his manager said Camille Estephan to BoxingScene.com\Netboxe.com. "I am pleased to see that he is in excellent shape after his camp in Las Vegas. A camp in which he sparred with former world champion Hasim Rahman, in addition to David Rodriguez and Rafael Zumbano at the HIT Factory Gym. We are very confident and excited by the opportunity presented to us against Ray Austin on HBO."

The duel between Bermane Stiverne and Ray Austin will be presented on the undercard of the clash between junior welterweights Devon Alexander and Lucas Matthysse, and the card will be broadcast on HBO. Stiverne has already secured the WBC International, USNBC and WBA Fedelatin titles, by defeating Kertson Manswell by TKO in the second round on January 29th.

[QUOTE=Freedom.;10732686]This fight shouldn't be a WBC eliminator. Stiverne doesn't have a single win over a top 100 heavyweight, and Austin was in the last WBC eliminator and lost by DQ. Stiverne is ranked #74 at heavyweight by BoxRec. I can…
