American-Mexican heavyweight Chris Arreola (38-7-1, 33 KOs) is a three-time contender for the WBC championship belt. The fighter suffered his debut defeat in 2009 – capitulated in a battle with Ukrainian champion Vitali Klitschko. Arreola completed his last title attempt in the same way – he refused to continue the fight with compatriot Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs).
The fighter was asked to compare the striking power of Klitschko and Wilder.
Answer Arreola: “In fact, we are talking about completely different types of punches. Their power cannot be compared for one simple reason. Klitschko hits like he’s trying to go right through you. And Wilder’s slaps are more like whiplashes. When Klitschko hit me, it seemed to me that he went beyond his body. Under his blows, I felt as if I was leaving my material body. Pi ** ets hard f ** shit.
Arreola has already exchanged his fifth decade, but is in no hurry to end his career. Last year, he sought a fight with former world champion Anthony Joshua: “Come on, don’t be a bitch!” He also shared his predictions for the most anticipated heavyweight fights: Wilder vs Ruiz and Fury vs Usyk.
