Chris Arreola Predicts Pain and Punishment For Mitchell

by Frank Stea

On September 7th at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California - a crossroads fight will take place when Chris Arreola (35-3, 30KOs) faces Seth Mitchell (26-1-1, 19KOs) in a battle of Al Haymon-managed heavyweights. Arreola, coming off a loss to Bermane Stiverne, appeared on ATG Radio and said he plans to damage Mitchell with pain and punishment. Arreola plans to jump on Mitchell early and doesn't plan to take his foot off the gas.

"He better bring his football helmet because that's the only way he's going to go twelve rounds. I don't want to give this guy no opportunity or no chance to win. I'm going into the ring for the best Seth Mitchell, which I don't think is much - but I don't give a crap. There is that pressure [to look good], but I don't take it as pressure. I have to take care of business regardless. I have to make it spectacular. I guarantee Seth is going to be in a world of hurt. I'm going to stay on his ass until whenever he gets knocked out. He is going to be in a lot of pain. We do not play boxing. Boxing is not a game," Arreola said.

Id bet everything I own on Arreola. Double or nothing first round KO.

Arreola's broken huge nose took some pain from Stiverne. Chris is a journeyman but so is Mitchell.

Arreola might look good against a guy like Mitchell, but as soon as he steps it up and fights skilled fighters, he looks very ordinary - as seen in his defeats vs Adamek, Vitaly, and Stiverne. Arreola is exciting, but…
