Earlier today WBC #1 World Contender Chris Arreola (35-2, 30 KOs) and WBC #2 world contender Bermane Stiverne (22-1-1, 20 KOs) met for their final press conference. On Saturday Arreola will fight Stiverne in a 12-round WBC heavyweight Elimination bout with the winner guaranteed to fight for the world championship in his next bout. Here’s what they had to say:

Bermane Stiverne: “A few days away from the fight. I don’t really have much to say except if anyone cut me with a knife to see what’s inside of me they would see that I’m not here to knock Chris out. I am here to chop his head off. That’s what we do where I came from. You don’t break my will. I can’t wait for Saturday night. This is serious. Before you beat me or knock me out you will have to kill me. Your people can talk for you but they can’t fight for you”.

Chris Arreola: “In case you didn’t know… I’m a crazy guy. I like that you want to come cut my head off. That’s what boxing is about. This is a fight! You telling me you’re gonna chop my head off buts a fire in my belly. I’m going to f**k you up. I’m going to box circles around you. I have no bad feeling for you [Stiverne] but I am going to knock you out. I want both of us to come home to our families. Although,you [Stiverne] may go home a little sad and dejected. I’ll send you [Stiverne] a fruit basket.
