Stiverne: Arreola fight is personal

“This fight with Arreola became personal for me after the postponement,” says WBC #2 heavyweight Bermane Stiverne, who finally faces #1 Chris Arreola in a WBC eliminator after several delays. “I’ve been going back and forth for so long waiting for this fight to happen that I’m now taking this personally. Time spent with my friends and family has been taken away from me, so it’s good he and I are finally going to get it on in Southern California on April 27.”

Stiverne admits that Arreola is a tough customer, but says he’s noticed something. “I have noticed that all of his opponents seem to fight the same way. They come into the ring with great intentions before falling into his traps. They have a game plan but they seem to forget. They follow the plan for a few rounds and then they let him take over. I will not do that. I’m bringing my ax to the fight and I’m going to chop the tree down.”
