Stiverne Vows: I'm Going To Chop Arreola's Head Off!

By Mike Coppinger

The on-again, off-again, fight between Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne is finally taking place Saturday on HBO, a combustible heavyweight matchup.

Both men are big punchers and have come-forward styles, with each boxer going against modest competition of late. Arreola (35-2-1, 30 KOs) is known as one of the most bombastic talkers in the sport, but it was Stiverne (22-1-1, 20 KOs) who was running his mouth at Wednesday's final press conference at the Citizen's Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif. -- the site of the fight.

"Saturday night, I'm not here to knock you out, Chris," Stiverne says, "I’m here to chop your head off. I'm going to chop your head off. That's what we do where I'm from.That’s what we do where I am from. I heard you talk about my will, you can not break my will. You can't break my will. Don't forget I'm from Haiti.

"Saturday night I can't wait; I can't just wait for this to happen. I've been waiting so long. This is serious -- this is real serious. ... Before you beat me or knock me out, you gotta' kill me, and that's not gonna happen. I will knock him out. There's no other way. Anybody can talk for you, but they can't fight for you."
