Photo: Arreola Was Up on Two Cards at Time of TKO

By Francisco Salazar

USC Galen Center, Los Angeles, California - Chris Arreola (36-4, 31KOs) was winning a close split decision going into the sixth round of his rematch with Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21KOs). Arreola was up 48-47 on two cards, with Stiverne up 48-47 on the third. Arreola started fast in the fight and outworking, outlanding Stiverne in the early going. Stiverne, however, stayed patient and landed a huge right hand that sent Arreola down in the sixth. Another knockdown and a few more unanswered punches sealed the deal for Stiverne.

If Arreola would have survived the sixth, Stiverne would had a sizable shift on all three cards with a 10-7 swing.
