Trainer Don House backs Bermane Stiverne to win WBC heavyweight title

The impending WBC heavyweight championship fight to determine the successor of recently retired Vitali Klitschko, between WBC Silver champion Bermane "B. Ware" Stiverne (23-1, 20 KOs) and Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola (36-3, 31 KOs), is extra special for Stiverne's veteran head trainer, Don House.

"First," House explained, "I've been with Bermane since the first day and that's really why this is so special for me. It's also special for me because I've been part of teams for world champions - Diego Corrales, Kevin Kelly, Joan Guzman, Frankie Liles and others - but I've never been the head trainer of the world heavyweight champion or a WBC world champion.

"Bermane has grown a lot since the beginning [pro debut July 29, 2005]. He was young and a little immature back them. The first time I saw him hitting the heavy-bag I said I could make him a champ and give him the discipline he needed.
