Good news for boxing if ESPN makes a substantail investment.
Wow, Stiverne vs. Arreola is going to be an awesome matchup. Way to go, ESPN. The first time they fought Stiverne broke Arreola's nose in the 2-3rd round but it was still an exciting fight. I love Arreola, a real tough ass dude... honest as hell, too. I'd like to see the winner of Malik Scott/Deontay Wilder face the winner of this one.

Lmao... sorry, I didn't know. I'm so used to boxers ducking each other and not fighting the obvious challenger that it's second nature for me to think like that.

I think Scott is the best American heavyweight, to be honest. He got robbed against Glasgov jn what was ruled a Draw and he was dominating Derek Chisora before the worst British Stoppage ever seen. Wilder has wicked power but he's sloppy and the competition he's faced has been bad, and that's being nice. The one thing that worries me about Wilder is his chin. I've seen him get rocked several times by stiff jabs... would hate to see what happens if he had to take a beating from Chris Arreola or liver shots from Bermane Stiverne. His camp is smart, though... while Malik Scott is really talented he lacks any real power, so I see Wilder eventually walking him down and KO'ing him.
so Top Rank just announced that the winner of Alvarado/Marquez would fight the winner of Pac/Bradley

This is great news, but I can't help but think that ESPN will be working out a PPV scenario. No way we get title fights for the basic cable rate. This has to be a teaser.
