Chris Arreola’s training camp moved to Phoenix for Seth Mitchell fight

Trainer Henry Ramirez has tried and tried to get his fighter, heavyweight contender Chris Arreola, to train hard. In Ramirez’s mind, poor camps are directly responsible for two of Arreola’s three losses – to Tomasz Adamek and Bermane Stiverne.

What’s a trainer to do? Ramirez moved training camp from Arreola’s Riverside roots, to Phoenix, Ariz. for Arreola’s big fight against fellow contender Seth Mitchell (26-1-1, 19 KOs) on Sept. 7 at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio (on Showtime).

“I didn’t move the training camp to Phoenix because we were having great training camps at home,” Ramirez said Wednesday via telephone from Phoenix. “He needed to get away from home.”
Ramirez said Arreola (35-3, 30 KOs) has been working harder than ever in the 2 1/2 weeks he’s been in camp.

Chris Arreola-Seth Mitchell moved from Sept. 6 to Sept. 7 in Indio

Golden Boy Promotions on Tuesday announced it has moved its card featuring a main event between heavyweights Chris Arreola and Seth Mitchell from Friday, Sept. 6 to Saturday, Sept. 7 at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio.

Golden Boy did not give a specific reason for the move. But it’s obvious it was made because a Top Rank Inc. card that was to feature super middleweights Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Brian Vera on Sept. 7 at Staples Center was postponed Monday because of a cut sustained by Chavez in sparring.

Arreola-Mitchell will be televised by Showtime. It will include a featherweight bout between former bantamweight/super bantamweight champion Rafael Marquez of Mexico and Efrain Esquivias of Carson.

Chavez-Vera was going to be televised by HBO.
