Klitschko Eyes November U.S. Return: Mitchell or Arreola

By Luke Furman

WBA/WBO/IBF/IBO heavyweight Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 50 KOs) is ready to go with his upcoming rematch against Tony Thompson on July 7th in Berne, but he won't rule out the possibility of returning to the United States, possibly in the month of November. He has two opponents in mind for November, Seth Mitchell (24-0-1, 18 KOs) or Chris Arreola (35-2, 30 KOs). Wladimir has not fought in the United States in February 2008, when he dominated Sultran Ibragimov in New York's Madison Square Garden.

"[After Thompson] I'm going to return to the ring once again [in 2012], probably in November. At this moment we can not talk about specific dates or opponents, but I won't not rule out the possibility of this fight taking place in the United States. There are two interesting players - Seth Mitchell and Chris Arreola, who after losing to my brother managed to once again return to the forefront," Klitschko said.

Arreola or Mitchell, Lol. Does HBO mean Haymon Boxing Network? I hope not! Odd how those are the two guys.

He creams both but Arreola should be first.
