In a little blurb from Lem Satterfield of The Ring, it was announced that Chris Arreola is being added to the February 18th card on Showtime. Headlining this event is a junior middleweight fight between Paul Williams and Nobuhiro Ishida, with an undercard already including a good matchup between Tavoris Cloud and Gabriel Campillo. The opponent for Chris Arreola is not yet known, but I doubt he will give Chris any trouble.

Arreola is coming off of a good year where he rededicated himself to boxing and managed to shed much of his extra weight. For his last four fights, Chris managed to come around 240 lbs., off from he previous highs around 260. Also Chris managed to have a busy schedule last year, fighting a total of 5 times. I remember Chris saying that he really likes to have a busy schedule because then he doesn't have time to blow up between fights. Finish a fight and then head straight to the gym in order to keep in shape. Whatever he needs to do to keep in shape and keep away from the cerveza and the burritos.

Chris has a likable personality and it seems like his dedication to boxing is real if he can manage to keep his weight under 240 for this fight. I would like to see Chris step up in competition this year with a fight with either Tomasz Adamek, David Haye, Alexander Povetkin, or Dereck Chisora. All of these fights would be a step up and most of them have the potential to be good scraps. Arreola has reformed his ways and deserves to get another shot at a big money fight.
