Name: STIVERNE, BERMANE FIGHT WORN GLOVES (2005-PRO DEBUT)
History: Bermane "B. WARE" Stiverne (born 1 November, 1978 in Plaine-du-Nord, Haiti) is a Haitian-born Canadian professional heavyweight boxer and the current WBC world heavyweight champion. Stiverne holds two notable victories over Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola. Stiverne was Canada's superheavyweight silver medallist in 2005. In 2003 and 2004 he won bronze. In international competition he beat Robert Helenius (points) and David Price (KO). His record was 49-10. He comments about his absence from the Olympics: "In a qualifying tournament in Mexico I met a Mexican fighter in the semi-finals and I was robbed. I knocked him down three times but still they gave him the decision and the place in Olympics." However no Mexican went in that category to the Olympics. He turned pro under Don King and knocked out his first 12 opponents with his trademark left hook. He is currently fighting out of Las Vegas. In 2007 he lost by TKO to Demetrice King. In January 2011, he fought and KOd Kertson Manswell in the 2 round. He won the vacant WBC International, vacant WBC USNBC and vacant WBA Fedelatin heavyweight titles. He fought Ray Austin on June 25, 2011 for the vacant WBC Silver Heavyweight title. Stiverne won the fight by a 10 round TKO, becoming the mandatory challenger for the WBC heavyweight championship, then held by Vitali Klitschko. After Klitschko vacated the title in December 2013, Stiverne was signed to fight Chris Arreola for the vacant title. On May 10, 2014, Stiverne won the title after a sixth-round knockout of Arreola, becoming the first Haitian-born boxer to win a world heavyweight championship.
