Asked if Klitschko's retirement disappointed him, Stiverne said:
"I'm not disappointed that I will not fight Klitschko. All that matters now is get my hands on the green belt and become the first heavyweight champion of Haiti."
"I've got the best team to take care of these matter's. Not my concern about where or when. My job is to be ready when the time and date arrives..."
"My performance will be flawless. I'll will knock Chris Arreola's ass out."
