Chris Arreola's Promoter Focused on Vacant WBC Title

By Robert Morales

Dan Goossen promotes heavyweight contender Chris Arreola, who is ranked No. 2 to the WBC title just vacated by Vitali Klitschko, who was made champion emeritus by the WBC so he can focus on running for president in his native Ukraine.

Goossen was asked what was going on as far as Arreola perhaps fighting No. 1-ranked Bermane Stiverne for the vacant title. We also brought up what the aforementioned Schaefer told BoxingScene.com recently about this.

Schaefer said that since Stiverne has already fought and defeated Arreola, he'd like to see Stiverne take on No. 3-ranked Deontay Wilder - a Golden Boy fighter - for the title with the winner to make his first defense against Arreola.

Stiverne is in a current legal battle with his promoter, Don King, meaning he might be incapable of fighting for some time. Goossen said he knows about some stuff going on behind the scenes, but he wouldn't go on the record with it.

On the record, he gave us a little as it pertains to the idea of Arreola stepping aside temporarily so Stiverne and Wilder could fight first. Schaefer had said he'd have to work something out with Arreola in this regard, but Goossen didn't seem too keen on that idea.

"I mean, when you have the opportunity to fight for the heavyweight championship, that's what you're interested in doing," Goossen said. "You're interested in doing it sooner rather than later.

"Our goal right now is to get this heavyweight championship made and moving forward because this has been the goal since day one, with Chris making history. Until all of those things are ironed out, we're going to have to sit back and see where everything unfolds."

Goossen briefly on Andre Ward

Goossen didn't want to say much about Andre Ward's latest attempt to free himself of Goossen, his promoter. Just this:

"I'm very disappointed in Andre," Goossen said.

Ward tried earlier this year to have his contract voided through arbitration with the California State Athletic Commission. Goossen won. Ward recently sued Goossen in Los Angeles Superior Court, looking for another bite at the apple.

Ward stop being a brat! The Super 6 tourney MADE Ward, the opp to fight some of the divisions most high profile names in consecutive fights and ultimately winning the tourney gave him a platform to exhibit the plethora of skills he has that we all respect and appreciate him for. Without that to...

Andre needs to read. Him and his team read the contract and resigned of their own free will after his original ended. This is on ward

[QUOTE=hitking]I'm aware that all gold medalist don't pan out. That said, they're given every opportunity to do so. As for the way he was matched, it was pure garbage. He basically fought nobody and was pretty much thrown in the Super Six, against the then best fighter in the division and was...
