Note that this is NOT ESPN 2 or ESPN 3, but plan old regular ESPN. It is good to see boxing back on REGULAR ESPN. Boxing needs some competition from the smaller networks and this is a good start.

Only critique I have is that while Arreola-Stievrne I was a good fight, I don't think it was two-sided enough for a rematch, let alone a world championship. In a terribly weak division, this fight realistically puts the winner into contendership, but not a world champion.

great to see a potentially exciting rematch getting solid publicity. i think this fight could draw in some casual fans, but nothing that will leave a lasting impression.

Boxing should have made it's return to regular tv long ago..you've got Lightweights fighting for a hundred grand on showtime/HBO...can't tell me a network can't come up with 600k per event regularly considering they paid vince mcmahon hundreds of millions for wrestling. There are tons of boxers who don't make much but put on great fights.

That's pretty cool. Nice little shakeup to the industry a bit. Maybe we will see more stuff like this in the future

Tits get another shot, it will be the same outcome.

I think so too. "Nipples" usually makes for exciting fights, but he's just too limited to get above that C grade level against top guys. It shows. Do you think "Nipples" is going to get in shape for this? Or will it be "Tacos and Burritos time" for his training regiment?

I will be pulling for "Nipples" to win, but I think the result will be the same as last time, or close to that.

Tits does not do well under bright lights or the big stages. Little venues he does great but when the heat is full on he tends to look great for the first three rounds and he then he folds. he is the Zab of the heavyweight division.

Wouldn't Arreola be the first Mexican-American World Champion if he wins, or has that already been done before? If not, then that's added motivation for him right there to come in tip top shape and I don't mean coming in "round" lol.

Stiverne gave him that work in the first fight...that body work made for an ugly situation...not to mention Chris's busted nose. Kinda glad that ESPN got this rematch, but as Jack mentioned, it's not like the first fight was a close one, but I'll enjoy watching Arreola get handled again. Poor Ramirez...his fighters just take beatings after beatings. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif)
