*Odds taken 07/31/19

Arreola contended for the WBC heavyweight title three years back in a losing effort to Deontay Wilder. Since then Arreola has rebounded to win his next two fights with the last bout being a TKO victory. Kownacki is in line for potential cracks at the upper echelon of the heavyweight division.

There were some rumors of him stepping up to fight Anthony Joshua a few months ago and Kownacki could earn a future crack at WBC gold. Kownacki foresees a future fight with Deontay Wilder and has in past implied that he has had better performances when comparing efforts against mutual opponents they’ve faced.

Kownacki Keeps Train on Tracks

Arreola has made the claim that if he loses this fight, he’ll retire. Arreola has had a respectable career where he’s collected international gold but also hardware in continental Americas as well as the United States.

Part of the potential decision to retire is rooted in how proud Arreola is of his accomplishments. He wants fans to remember him as a prolific, champion-caliber fighter. Arreola doesn’t want to be that guy who sticks around to be a scalp on the resumes of up and coming heavyweights.

Both combatants have identical height and reach. Kownacki has a near 80-percent KO rate to Arreola’s 72-percent knockout rate. One noticeable part about the tale of the tape is the unblemished record for Kownacki. Arreola has the edge in experience but I think the momentum, youth, and speed favor Kownacki. I see him being the fourth man to stop Arreola in ‘The Nightmare’s’ pro boxing career.

Kownacki vs Arreola is a quality prizefight in the heavyweight division. This bout will be a strong one in establishing the heavyweight hierarchy as an unbeaten freight train takes on imposing gatekeeper. I see Kownacki securing the TKO victory inside of eight rounds.

Pick: Kownacki (-3500)
