Heavyweight Chris Arreola, who faces Adam Kownacki on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, has a 44-fight career filled with entertaining moments. It hasn't been perfect, but it has been memorable.
Say what you want about Arreola, but he has been a trailblazer of sorts. Before there was Andy Ruiz (the first heavyweight champion of Mexican descent), there was "The Nightmare," who competed at the highest levels of boxing's glamour division. No, he wasn't always the most dedicated or disciplined fighter -- something he would readily admit -- but Arreola was a fun-loving character who generally gave the fans their money's worth when he stepped inside that ring.
Coming off a third-round TKO of Jean Pierre Augustin on March 16, the 38-year-old says he has no regrets. He has, however, recently moved under the tutelage of Joe Goosen, his new trainer.
"People tell me, 'Do you wish you would have changed your trainer a lot sooner? Do you think you should have made your move?' Y'know, possibly, but what's done is done," said Arreola. "I'm not living in the past."
