I finally got to watch Arreola vs Stiverne and I must say....Stiverne put the beats on Chris like they were fighting in a studio. Stiverne impressed me. It's been a while since I've seen a heavyweight not named James Toney slip a punch and counter the way he did. The first time was cool, but I'm getting tired of Arreola's "I know I looked like shit but I got fucking heart" post fight declarations. I always call Arreola "Brandon Rios' big brother" and last night he didn't look any different. Put a boxer with some pop in the ring with him and he's creamed corn. Stiverne was tearing Chris fat belly and love handles up all night long. Then he stuck his jab right in Chris' sternum when Chris began to bring his guard up after the knockdown. It was funny because I think Arreola has a half completed tattoo on his chest and I was joking that Stiverne punched the ink off of it.

Don't even get me started on that knockdown. Perfectly placed punch on Arreola's big paper towel roll nose. Arreola got a false sense of hope stalking Stiverne. I could see it coming from round 2. Arreola was the aggressor but he wasn't landing. Stiverne started nervous and jittery but it was like he was getting more relaxed as Arreola was throwing more punches. I don't know if it was because he knew he could take Chris' punch or because he was confident he could time him. Overrall, I was pleased with Stiverne's performance. I don't think he's ever going to be a threat to the Klitchsko's, especially Vitali, because he's too short. But if he really feels he wants to take on that challenge, he needs and come in better shape. The lack of professionalism and dedication to their craft displayed by both him and Chris was disgusting. It was like watching a real life Hungry Hungry Hippos game.

Also, one minor thing of note. I thought Andre Ward topped Paulie Malinaggi with an uncharacteristically bad commentary performance. Not that he was terrible, but he was CLEARLY biased for Chris Arreola. I'm guessing they have some type of Cali connection. Not saying he didn't give Stiverne his props but he seemed very reluctant. It was almost like he was willing Arreola with his words. Arreola was a brutal mess and only had really 2 stints of anything worth mentioning after the knockdown. I think Paulie and Andre could be EXCELLENT commentators once their boxing careers are done. I was just a tad bit disappointed with their commentary this weekend.

Did anyone else watch the very end where Stiverne was doing an interview and Don King got into that argument then fell off the stairs? lmaoooooo (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)
