Default Arreola vs Staverne - now on Andre Ward vs Kelly Pavlik undercard

Doubts are growing over Don King's Chris Arreola vs Bermane Staverne WBC world title eliminator. King paid way over the odds for the December 15th matchup set down for Venezuela.

Dan Raphael had this to say today >>>

"Arreola is supposed to fight Bermane Stiverne in a title eliminator to become Vitali's manadatory. Don King won the purse bid and supposedly the fight will be next month in Venezuela. I will believe it when I see it".

I hope it goes ahead and I hope that both will be in the best shape they can possibly be (notice how I worded it ?)

That being said, in today's boxing it seems that most title eliminators never get made and when they are, it seems that the winner never gets to fight the champ right away.

I like Stiverne's left hook and I like Arreola's heart.

You make a good point about eliminators.

I hope it does happen all the decent heavyweight fights seem to be getting called off lately.

Don King has been referring to this one as a "Superfight". Paid $1.1Million for it, the silly old coot. Goossen offered less than half that.

I think the fight will happen I'm pretty skeptical it happens in Venezuela though. King paid over 1 million for the fight and I don't think he gets any major tv coverage in Venezuela.

Goosen bid 500,000 for the fight and if King can't put the fight on than Goosen gets it. I read, if he gets the fight, he wants to put it on the undercard of Ward-Pavlik.

That'd be a nice lead-in fight.

If the fight happens in Venezuela and it's razor close, Arreola's taking it...trust me.

Arreola is a Goosen fighter. King will make sure to grease the judges so his fighter Stiverne wins.

It won't see the 12th, however. Arreola will fall.
