Default Whats with all the hype around Bermane Stiverne?

I just don't see it.... He was getting outboxed easily by Ray Austin until he KO'd him in the 10th, and he got stopped by a complete bum a few years back.. Looking at his record Ray Austin is obviously his best win, and he looked like shit in that fight. why the hype? are there really people hung on the fact that he beat Price and Helenius in the amateurs a long time ago? I personally think this is a fairly easy fight for Arreola to win....

he's a typical slugger with huge power, no defense and almost no skills, but when he throws punches, it's fun to watch

There's hype around Stiverne? From whom?

Stiverne has about half as many hypers as Mitchell had, bringing him to a total of one.

Hype?

I think no one who has seen Stiverne vs Austin even takes him serious as a contender.

Maybe because Vitali has avoided fighting him mandatory.

The reason this has happened, however, is because Jose Suleiman wants to set up a fight between Arreola & Stiverne for the wacant wbc when Vitali retires. And while Stiverne would be a step-up from Charr, he would be a step down from Chis-...um...

yeah

I've post a positive comment or two about Stiverne, so I may be included in the so called "hypers".

It's a sport and I'm a positive kind of guy. I love good competitives fights and I prefer to see a fighter succeed, than struggle. Stiverne is more than limited, that's a fact, but he's got a really good left hook and his countering abilities are above average. I prefer to talk about that, because I'm a fan of this sport and I don't see the fun of talking about how fat Arreola is and in what condition Haye's toe is.

Stiverne will never be the champion, but he's better than 99 % of the heavies nowadays so he must be good at something. He KOed David Price in the amateurs and also won against Helenius, why shouldn't we talk about that ? Because he's not the second coming of Wlad Klitschko ? Everybody knows that, nobody care.

Hype? I've seen more dentists hype not chewing Trident than I've seen suggesting Stiverne's a future champion.

Stiverne will brutally KO Arreola and send geriatric Vitali into retirement. And if Fury wants it, B-WARE is more than happy to shatter some British glass, I'm sure. He already shattered Price's chin, don't forget.

Don King. So take it with a grain of salt

King bid $1.1 million for the Stiverne - Arreola fight; twice as much as the next highest bid. Seems he believes in Stiverne, then again King has not much else at HW.

Not a day goes by that I don't see one respected poster or another saying that Stiverne is going to be the best post-Lewis heavyweight. It's disgusting.
