Street of Dreams: Chris Arreola Loses His Chance at History Against Bermane Stiverne


****

A few years ago, Arreola, a colorful pug with a solid left hook, had some serious buzz surrounding him. A Mexican-American heavyweight champion: Was it possible? (In the early 1990s, Alex Garcia, an ex-gangbanger out of San Fernando, came close to a title shot, but his chin and lack of talent—a deadly combination in boxing—held him back.) Unfortunately, Arreola, recently under house arrest for DUI, has never taken his craft seriously, which is one reason he has never beaten an A fighter. In 2009, Vitali Klitschko pummeled him from bell to bell in a title defense before forcing a TKO stoppage in the tenth round. Since then, Arreola, 33, has been as erratic as Amanda Bynes or weather patterns in the South.

    Arreola has skill, unlike Alex Garcia who just had heavy hands, The biggest problem with Chris is he don’t give himself the best chance to win. I have never saw him come in the ring in tip top shape! I hope he takes his craft serious in the future,,,, Good luck Chris!
