It was that age-old battle between the squat, bowling-ball-of-a-man and the taller dude with arms as long as a giraffe’s neck.
Less prep time, no problem.
Fans of heavyweight boxing are in for a treat September 26, when two of the most powerful big men in the division highlight a Premier Boxing Champions card in Birmingham, Alabama.
Chris Arreola is no stranger to making an early statement in his fights. And Saturday night at the Don Haskins Center in El Paso, Texas, it looked like Fred Kassi was waiting for it.
You could be forgiven if you thought you were in some Belfast pub instead of a hotel ballroom in El Paso, Texas, on Friday. The crowd worked itself up as first one, then another fighter from Barry McGuigan’s Cyclone Promotions took the scales for fights on Saturday’s card from the Don Haskins Center, which will air live on CBS (4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT).
Chris Arreola thrives on crowd-pleasing brawls, but the heavyweight contender is looking to make short work of Frederic Kassi.
"I'm my own worst enemy. I like to eat, and when people tell me to do something, I do the opposite. … My problem is that I don't give a damn about what anybody says.” – Chris Arreola
