Haitian brethren inspires Bermane Stiverne – Ring TV

Long before Bermane Stiverne’s sixth round technical knockout of Chris Arreola secured the vacant  WBC belt, making him the first heavyweight titleholder of Haitian descent in May, he had drawn inspiration and support from his compatriots.Sitting at ringside at the University of Southern California’s Galen Center was two-time welterweight titleholder Andre Berto, whose disaster relief efforts have supported victims of the earthquake that ravaged Haiti four years ago.Stiverne also heard from countrymen like former RING light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal as well as reigning RING/WBC 175-pound champion Adonis Stevenson, the latter prior to his own unanimous decision over Andrez Fonfara in May.“Of course I heard from them. Actually, Berto was there that night and Adonis couldn’t make it because he was getting ready for his next fight, which was two weeks after I fought. But I did get a lot of calls from a lot of people and that was well appreciated. There were things like, ‘Congratulations,’ and things like that,” said Stiverne. via – Ring TV
