Riverside, CA – Yesterday was another “consecutive day” in camp for heavyweight world contender Chris Arreola, a training camp which he and his trainer Henry Ramirez are taking a “one day at a time” approach.  This training streak reminds Ramirez of the hard work Arreola put in during the early stages of his career, beginning each morning with road work and ending with a hard and complete workout in the gym.  The only difference between Arreola’s early success and his new found commitment to training is the ESPN2 camera crew following him around to document a glimpse of his training regiment for a special piece which will air on August 13th as part of the show featuring his highly anticipated match against Manuel Quezada.

Friday night, August 13, Riverside’s Cristobal “The Nightmare” Arreola (28-2, 25 KOs) will have the opportunity to take his first step towards redemption when he squares of with   Bakersfield’s Manuel “El Toro” Quezada (29-5, 18 KOs) for the Mexican National Heavyweight Championship at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA in the scheduled 12-round ESPN2 “Friday Night Fights” main event presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions and sponsored by Soboba Casino.

“I need to keep my mind focused on taking it one day at a time and not get too proud of the fact that I haven’t missed a day in training for this bout.  It’s what I should have done the last two years and I apologize to all of my fans for letting them down.  I’ve got a God given talent and I have to nurture it if I want to re-emerge as a true World title contender; there is no other option.

Tickets are priced at $79, $59 and $29 (parking included with purchase) and can be purchased at the Citizens Business Bank Arena Box Office and  For more information please visit A full card of fights underneath the Arreola-Quezada bout will be announced shortly.  Doors open at 5 p.m. with the first televised fight starting at 6 p.m.
