Chris Arreola promised to ‘embarrass’ Seth Mitchell prior to their heavyweight showdown at the Fantasy Springs Casino In Indio, California on Saturday night.
A massive right hand by Arreola, connected after just a minute of the first bell, which had Mitchell visibly hurt before being pushed to the canvas as he desperately tried to stay upright. However, Arreola, 6-3-(31), kept up the pressure to eventually rock Mitchell again with a series of right hands a minute or so later which had hid momentarily turning his back before the referee stepped in to stop the fight after 2.26 of the opener.
Not satisfied with his premature workout Arreola hit the canvas immediately afterwards to show how much energy he had left by doing press ups.
Arreola, who lost a heavyweight title eliminator Bermane Stiverne back in April has now put himself back in the mix whilst Mitchell will be having a think about whether he has a future at the heavyweight top level.
