I'm too old to be doing that, man.</em></p><p><em>So it's a make-or-break kind of fight. It's a win-or-go-home thing, and I know Adam has intentions to retire me, and I'm not planning to retire no time soon. I know Adam worked his butt off to get me out of this boxing, but I worked hard myself."</em></p><p>Chris Arreola has more experience but Adam Kownacki has the edge in momentum, youth and speed. 'The Nightmare" Arreola is sort of a gatekeeper for an unbeaten Kownacki who wants to establish himself in the division. Arreola has a lot to prove and although both fighters are known for their punching power and aggressive styles, I see this fight reaching round seven.</p></div>
