Photos: Stiverne Blasts Out Arreola For WBC Crown

Bermane Stiverne has claimed the vacant World Boxing Council heavyweight title, stopping Chris Arreola in the sixth round before a crowd of 3,992 at the University of Southern California's Galen Centre arena. The 35-year-old Stiverne knocked Arreola down twice in the sixth round before referee Jack Reiss stopped the bout at 2:02 of the round, giving Stiverne the victory in the first heavyweight championship bout on American soil since 2009.

Stiverne, a Canadian of Haitian descent, connected with a right cross that sent Arreola to the canvas for the first time early in the round. Arreola's knees buckled and he stumbled several feet across the ring before he went down. Later in the round Stiverne knocked Arreola halfway through the ropes with a left and then finished him off with a barrage of lefts and rights in Arreola's corner that forced Reiss to step in.
