    Chris Areola gave him a kiss on the cheek. Cocky bastard. He forgets he lost to the last two white guys he fought. He will always be nothing more than a butter ball turkey with power. He will never be heavyweight champion of the world. He is a joke! Edited by: white lightning

    Brian Kenny was also outraged by Cris's brief homosexual act. He thought it was classless. Cris did show some restraint though. He could have bludgeoned him like Tyson did to Joe Saverse when the ref was in between them.

    I think Cris would have more than chance at Gaye. But Gaye would never ever think of fight him.

    Too bad, Joey had a chance, if waited until the middle rounds based on the boxing he displayed before getting hammered.

    Arreola is a good fighter but he'll never be heavyweight champ. He can't beat any of the top white fighters like the Klitschko's, Adamek, Boystov, Chagaev, and others. He's just fighting for money at this point because as long as the Klitschko's are in the division he will never win a title.

    While I do think it was a case of being punked by Cristobal, when George Foreman fought Charlie Polite he had kisses tossed his way by Polite when they fought in Toronto. Here is the video...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmGqsS2gG9M&feature=relatedEdited by: white is right

    I think the stoppage was way premature. I've seen too many house
    referees dive in at the first opportunity to stop the fight in favor of
    the house favorite. Standing eight count or no standing eight count I
    think he should have seperated them and counted. Abell would then
    probably have gone to one knee once they were seperated and he had room
    to fall. He had been winning the round until he was hit. He deserved
    the chance to try to come back. If the crowd wasn't 99% Mexican they
    would have been chanting BS and showering the ring with garbage.



    As for the homosexual Arreola kissing the man when he was stunned, I
    think he should be fined and/or suspended for that disgraceful behavior.
    That fat ahole was a disgrace in the Vitali fight too when he was
    crying like a baby girl and cursing on tv.



    The best reaction to a homosexual fighter kissing his opponent was in
    that Asian MMA fight when they went nose to nose at the ref's
    instruction, and one guy kissed the other on the lips, so the other guy
    KO'd him, before the fight even started!

    I'm happy Arreola won! I'm a big cannibal, Arreola lost to two white fighters so i hope
    he can knock guys out left and right, it only make's Adamek and Vitali look better!

    Tough loss. I thought the "kiss" was classless but at least he didn't cry like Crissy when he lost.

    I actually thought Abell looked good for the first half of the round. I didn't like the way he reacted to punches. He completely froze up once he got hit clean. That tends to happen to guys who've been knocked out a few times like Abell. Hope he can rebound.

    Another crossroads upset! I think this says more about Zimnocha than it says about Abell as Zimnocha now has lost twice in devastating fashion to two ESPN level fighters. It's obvious his chin is extremely fragile and it's very rare that a boxer with a chin like his ever get near the top in boxing.

    If boxing were still a real sport Abell could get a decent money fight with a Mollo or Molina. As the sport is now it's probably a rematch or another fight against another prospect.
