2 Star RatingReview by AllTheBestFights.com: 2016-07-16, some good exchanges but it is not enough to gets three stars: Deontay Wilder vs Chris Arreola gets two.

The undefeated Wbc champion Deontay Wilder entered this fight with a perfect record of 36-0-0 (35 KOs=97%) and he is ranked as the No.3 heavyweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Tyson Fury). He won the Wbc belt against Bermane Stiverne in 2015 (=Stiverne vs Wilder) and he defended it three times, the last one against Artur Szpilka (=Wilder vs Szpilka).
His opponent, Chris Arreola, has a boxing record of 36-4-1 (31 KOs=86%) and he entered as the No.46 in the same weight class. He lost twice to Bermane Stiverne (in 2013 Arreola vs Stiverne I and in 2014 Stiverne vs Arreola II) but then he has collected two victories and one draw. Actually, Arreola’s second victory, against Travis Kauffman (=Arreola vs Kauffman), was overturned to No-Decision, as Arreola failed the post fight drug test. Wilder vs Arreola is valid for the WBC World heavyweight title (Wilder’s fourth defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!

  1. I watched this mismatch just to see how has Deontay progressed and what would happen if there was Povetkin standing in the ring instead of Arreola. Wilder still keeps making the same basic mistakes (dropping his right when he throws his left and vice versa, being too stretched out when he throws his punches, especially the jab…..). He is a good champion but he needs someone who is the same size (Fury, Joshua) or someone who can get in range and land shots (Povetkin). Wilder keeps improving his technique and movement but he is still very flawed, hope he corrects that in the future.

    1. Im afraid that he is too cocky , i think hell be like klitcho, he will need to be ko’d at least once before he realizes he needs to use his reach and stay in good positions. But he looked great against stiverrne not anywhere the mistakes i see him make the last 3 fights. One of these guys is going to land the punch and lay him out, than hell wake up and learn its not just about being big. I like him but he doesnt seem to take it seriously, and he hasnt fought any real stivernne is the biggest name and hes more of a class a-/b+ fighter-top competition and i feel he will be woken up when he does if he continues to fight like this and i dont think he will stop until someone takes his ego down a bit.

      1. Exactly. Molina, Duhaupas, Szpilka they all managed to catch him with some clean shots, but they couldn’t capitalize on that. Al Haymon is afraid to put there some real puncher who moves forward and can fight on the inside like Ortiz or Povetkin. Fighters lose to Wilder because they either swing their punches wildly and get countered or they just WAIT in the middle of the ring till he lands his lethal right hand. Wilder has a good team around him, he is entertaining and I’d like him to beat Povetkin, but it’s a 50-50 fight.

  2. Arreola made his pizza money, anyway. Wilder looked unmotivated in the bits I could stand watching before I fast-forwarded to the foregone conclusion. Put Luis Ortiz in with him and I think the protected Deontay will be in for an awakening.

  3. @ATBF: Unfortunately, as it is posted, this video isn’t accessible to me. Could you be so kind to solve this problem. Thank you host.

  4. Not a championship level fight. I wasn’t expecting much of Arreola who clearly didn’t deserve a shot at the title at this stage of his carreer, but Wilder’s performance was also quite sluggish. Anyway, I never really liked him. Okay.. he’s got that tremendous physique, but that’s it. Technically, he’s weak.

  5. Purses: Wilder $1.4M, Arreola $150K, Vasquez $225K, Diaz $125K Arreola basically fighting for Corona and T-Bone steak money. His very low purse kinda proves he knows he doesn’t deserve a shot.

  6. According to Wilder: “After a torn muscle, two dislocated fingers and bending the pin in my hand into a “V” shape in the 3&4 round I still fought thru the horrible pain. “

  7. Very slow pace fight but interesting to evaluate Wilder’s current conditions and development. He controlled the full fight keeping the right distance per his reach by using profusely his excellent jab. He is a very good technical boxer but too captious in spite of noticing he was very confident during the whole fight. This is good symptom since this confidence was absent on his latest bouts. However, he is missing the killing instinct that made Tyson great since after the knock down obtained in the 4th round he started the 5th with caution again.
