Ward-Pavlik, Arreola-Stiverne Double at Galen Center

By Ernest Gabion

BoxingScene.com has been advised that the WBC final eliminator between heavyweight contenders Chris Arreola (35-2, 30KOs) and Bermane Stiverne (22-1-1, 20KOs) will now take place on January 26th at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California.

The HBO televised event will be headlined by WBC/WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward, who will defend his titles against former middleweight king Kelly Pavlik.

Promoter Don King, who has Stiverne, secured the rights to promote the fight with a monster bid of $1.1 million dollars. Promoter Dan Goossen, who has Arreola, put down $550,000. King was trying to stage the fight on December 15th in Venezuela but the card fell through. Because King failed to finalize the fight, the promotional rights have now shifted to the second highest bidder, which is Goossen.

Even though Ward is going to beat Pavlik. Its a good pay day for both fighters. I am just glad fights are being made for 2013 already.

I will not say that he will win. But, I still don't believe that Pavlik is as washed up as most fans believe him to be.
