LOS ANGELES -- Bermane Stiverne completed his long journey to a heavyweight title with one more punishing victory. Stiverne stopped Chris Arreola in the sixth round Saturday night, claiming the WBC heavyweight title belt vacated by Vitali Klitschko. Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KOs), who was born in Haiti but grew up in Montreal, dropped Arreola twice in the sixth, and he was punishing Arreola again when referee Jack Reiss stopped the fight with 58 seconds left in the round. The Klitschko brothers had held every major heavyweight title for the past six years. Vitalis retirement into Ukrainian politics in December opened the WBC belt for the 35-year-old Stiverne, a late bloomer who hasnt lost in 13 consecutive fights. After beating Arreola by decision last year, Stiverne hadnt fought in nearly 13 months while waiting for Klitschkos decision to retire. The wait was worth it. \"I studied and studied,\" Stiverne said. \"I watched my opponent. I knew I could knock him out. ... I was patient. The plan was to let him get comfortable, and he soon as he gets real comfortable, then crack him. And thats what I did.\" Stiverne dropped Arreola (36-4) for the first time with a sweeping right hand to Arreolas left temple, sending Arreola wobbling and crashing to the canvas. Arreola rose and kept fighting, but Stiverne put him headfirst into the ropes moments later with another combination. After Reiss stopped the fight, Stiverne wept with the WBCs green belt around his shoulder while promoter Don King celebrated at the Galen Center on USCs downtown campus. \"I knew it was a wrap,\" Stiverne said. \"The way I trained, I knew I could knock him out because Ive got the power.\" Stiverne won a lop-sided decision over Arreola last April, breaking Arreolas nose in the third round. Arreola, who acknowledged training poorly for that fight, felt he lost the rematch when he got hit by the same punch that finished the first fight. \"He has a tremendous right hand, thats exactly what it was,\" Arreola said. \"I felt like I was winning the fight. He just got me with the same right hand. Couldnt get away from it, and after that, its all she wrote.\" The well-travelled Stiverne, who fought for Canada as an amateur boxer and trained in Florida earlier in his pro career, worked out of Floyd Mayweathers gym in Las Vegas for this bout. He is the first heavyweight champion of Haitian descent and the first champ not named Klitschko since Samuel Peter, who was stopped by Vitali Klitschko in 2008. Wladimir Klitschko, who holds the other three major heavyweight titles, is eager to claim all four belts by fighting the winner. But before that lucrative bout, Stiverne must fight unbeaten Deontay Wilder, the U.S. Olympic bronze medallist and the WBCs mandatory challenger. \"With all due respect, I dont give a damn about Wilder or Klitschko right now,\" Stiverne said. \"Right now, its about what I won.\" Arreola has lost both of his shots at the WBC heavyweight title, getting pounded by Vitali Klitschko in 2009 just up the street at Staples Center. The Los Angeles-area native was attempting to become the first heavyweight champion of Mexican descent. \"I could have got back up plenty of times,\" Arreola said. \"Was the fight stopped a little early? I believe so. But then again, the referee is there to protect me from myself. But I felt like I was winning the fight.\" Both fighters took advantage of the small 17-by-17-foot ring at the Galen Center, which was hosting its first boxing card. Stiverne landed the biggest shots in the opening round, but Arreola dominated the second and third rounds with a withering series of combinations, trapping Stiverne against the ropes. Stiverne laughed off the punishment and allowed Arreola to keep moving forward, content to counterpunch. \"I wasnt hurt,\" Stiverne said. \"He actually punched me, my mouth was open, and he busted my lip. I was trying to find out if there was food or something in my teeth, but it was my lip. He didnt hurt me in the head.\" Stiverne hasnt lost since July 2007, when he was stopped by Demetrice King. He fought to a majority draw with Charles Davis in 2009, but has stopped five of his last seven opponents. Custom San Jose Sharks Jerseys .

Despite good reports about his health since the end of the season, Ogando decided against pitching in winter ball.There was just too much uncertainty, and we didnt want go to through the process with that out there, general manager Jon Daniels said Tuesday night. It would have helped to have seen him in games. I fully expect hes going to go camp without any limitations. We saw off-the-mound live BP, he was healthy, ready to go.Daniels didnt rule out a return for Ogando, who made $2,625,000 this year and wanted to experience free agency if Texas didnt allow him to be eligible for arbitration.Rosales was offered a raise over this year, when he had a $750,000 salary and earned a $25,000 performance bonus, but he chose to test the market rather than agree to a deal..dddddddddddd Daniels said the Rangers will stay in touch with his agent.Closer Neftali Feliz and first baseman/designated hitter Mitch Moreland, both arbitration-eligible, were offered contracts before Tuesday nights deadline.Moreland had reconstructive surgery on his left ankle in June. The Rangers said Tuesday that Moreland had a follow-up MRI and examination and has been cleared for a running program. That will progress to full activity and he is expected to be ready for spring training.The Rangers are also close to finishing an agreement to bring back right-hander Colby Lewis, who became a free agent after pitching a team-high 170 1-3 innings last season. Daniels said he expects a deal to be finalized this week.Lewis finished strong last season after his comeback from missing 20 months with forearm and hip surgeries. While the 35-year-old pitcher was 10-14 with a 5.18 ERA overall, Lewis had a 3.86 ERA and averaged 6 2-3 innings in his last 13 starts.Texas declined to offer a contract to left-hander Michael Kirkman.
