Chris Arreola stops Jean Pierre Augustin – RESULTS


By Mike Smith: Former two time heavyweight world title challenger Chris Arreola (38-5-1, 33 KOs) made easy work of previously unbeaten little known Jean Pierre Augustin (17-1-1, 12 KOs) in stopping him in the third round of a scheduled 10 round fight on Saturday night on Fox Sports pay-per-view at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.


After Augustin, 31, got back to his feet, Arreola drove him to the ropes and unloaded on him with a small flurry of ramrod shots to the head one after another until the referee Neal Young stopped in and waived off the contest.


He’s got a ways to go, but he’s a viable option for one of the heavyweight world champions due to his name recognition with the casual and hardcore boxing fans.


Arreola that fought tonight would have a very good chance of beating the Stiverne we saw recently getting stopped by Joe Joyce.


He needs to be facing quality opposition rather than wasting time on prospects with limited talent, and who don’t belong fighting someone of his class level.


Going into tonight’s fight with Corbin, Martin had lost his previous contest against the hard hitting Adam Kownacki last September by a close 10 round decision.
