Stiverne - Arreola II ; 2014.05.10 Goossen Tudor / Don King Productions

Bermane Stiverne had won their previous meeting by unanimous decision. Much more than retribution was at stake for Chris Arreola, the recently vacated WBC heavyweight title was at stake as well.
Here are some images from that fight;



Arreola acknowledging his fans.

Arreola came out very aggressive. The first 5 rounds were clear his!



Landing combination after combination.

Bermane Stiverne landing a few, but Arreola was clearly in charge, and ahead both in punches thrown and percentage landed.

However the 6th round became his undoing.

Knocked down twice in the 6th, the shot below was the second knock down.


After Arreola was no longer able to defend himself,

referee Jack Reise stopped the contest.

Congratulations go out to Bermane Stiverne he has become the first Haitian born heavyweight to win a world championship title!

A very crowded ring as the fighters are interviewed after the fight.

A special thanks to Goossen Tudor, Don King Productions and Team Arreola.
