    Great fight for Vitali. I hope it happens. He will destroy Arreola.

    Isn't an Arreola part of a woman's anatomy? In any case, he will get killed against Vitali.

    I like Arreola, he comes to fight, but he has nothing to beat Vitali with. He'll be eating Ukrainian jabs and right hands all night.

    I hope that fat Mexican shlub (I don't know how I know he's fat, he's just gotta be) that predicted Austin over Vlad on Eastside has a front row seat.

    Arreola will put up a better fight than Haye would for sure. He is a decent fighter but now he is stepping up his competition too much by fighting Vitali.

    I see this fight quite competative for the first 5 rounds. Then the telephone pole jab of Vitali's will start to wear down Cristobal. I know Christobal recently hired a condition coach to improve in stamina and rid himself of his man boobs but it will not bring him success. [​IMG] I do believe Cristobal is the best American Heavyweight. I sse this fight ending like the Cooney v Holmes fight. Cristobal wearing Cooney's shoes of course. Should be interesting.

    Vitali will batter Arreola!

    The more aggressive Arreola comes out the sooner he will get knocked out. If he sits back and tries to box he'll get beat on round after round like Peter. Edited by: Blue Devils

    Look at how out of shape this guy is and the fight is only a few weeks away. The video was taken last Saturday.

    Arreola fights too far over his feet( meaning he leans in too much), exposes his chin when throwing punches (usually wide, sweeping "style") and essentially, follows his opponents around the ring like a ,stupid chihuahua puppy. He will eat jabs and counter rights/hooks until the fight is stopped by TKO or cuts.

    My God, just look at his face in the video, he's already starting to puff up, by the time he reaches the ring ropes his eyes will be half swollen shut.

    Vitali should easily defeat the obese Arreola. I am surprised Arreola is undefeated up to this point. He has fought some decent opposition and has a very high knockout percentage in the 80's.

    His biggest win is Jameel McCline who came out of retirement and probably didn't train for one second so he could collect one last paycheque.

    Arreola is a slow, obese fighter. He sure is ugly as well.

    It was evident at the presser yesterday that both Vitali Klitschko and Chris Arreola have a lot more class than David Haye:

    No. From his interview he seems like a nice guy. He doesn't trash talk and like Parody said both fighters have respect for each other.

    He will win this fight. Nobody beats Vitali. Even the "great" Lennox Lewis couldn't so he retired.

    Interesting how black sportswriters/commentators/analysts like Doug Fischer who wrote that article, or Manny Steward and Fran Charles on HBO are fair about white fighters (unlike the Jewish writers/commentators/analysts like Eric Raskin and Ivan Goldman at the Ring, and Max Kellerman and Teddy Atlas on HBO and ESPN).

    Manny Steward is very fair to white fighters. One black commentator I enjoy is George Foreman. He is very fair to white fighters and even said Golota could beat anyone in the heavyweight division when he was battering Bowe.
