Adonis Stevenson Eyes Braehmer, Then Hopkins-Kovalev

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (24-1, 20KOs) is mapping out his career until mid-2015. Stevenson is going to return on September 27th at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Stevenson had hoped to face IBF/WBA champion Bernard Hopkins. He received some bad news last Friday, when Hopkins finalized a November unification against WBO champion Sergey Kovalev.

The opponent has not been set for September, but Stevenson wants WBA 'regular' champion Juergen Braehmer (44-3, 32KOs) of Germany in December or January. If he wins his next two fights, he wants the winner of Hopkins-Kovalev.

"The next fight after September 27 is a unification with WBA champion Juergen Braehmer in December or January. After this fight, I will take on the winner between Hopkins and Kovalev," Stevenson said.

I'd prefer Pascal over Braehmer.

If he's not facing Braehmer next, this makes Campillo even more likely. This makes me happy.
