Adonis Stevenson Wins with 5th Rd. KO
Adonis Stevenson won today with a 5th rd. KO of Dmitry Sukhotsky. Stevenson has not shown much this year. There was a lot of hype and potential for Stevenson entering this year but he chose to take challenges Sukhotsky and Andrzej Fonfara over potential fights with other top light heavyweight contenders such as Bernard Hopkins and Sergey Kovalev.
Stevenson now taunts other top light heavyweights. Stevenson said, “Kovalev has to come to me. I’m the big champion. I’m the RING Magazine champion, I beat the man. I’m the man at light heavyweight. They have to come to me.” Kovalev appears primed for a big 2015 just like Stevenson was last year. After beating Hopkins, Kovalev and Jean Pascal have reportedly agreed to a March 14th fight in either Montreal, Pascal’s hometown, or Quebec City.
