Adonis Stevenson is likely heading to a unification with Sergey Kovalev in the fall or late summer, according to Stevenson's promoter Yvon Michel of GYM. For now both fighters are returning on separate dates in the coming months, with Kovalev (23-0-1, 21KOs) defending his WBO light heavyweight title on March 29, and Stevenson (23-1, 20 KOs) going against Polish contender Andrzej Fonfara (25-2, 15 KOs) on May 24th. HBO is pushing hard to have both of the boxers face each other this year.

"Adonis wants to unify the WBC and WBO titles and demonstrate without a doubt that he is the best boxer in the light heavyweight division. He gave me the mandate to organize this fight this year and we have already begun discussions. It's obviously a fight that will spark a lot of interest. It could even be the most anticipated fight on the international scene this year. HBO is doing everything in its power to bring us closer to an agreement," Michel told the Canadian Press.

"Adonis wants to have three fights. He wants to beat Kovalev, he wants to be considered in the top 5 pound for pound and he wants to be the most spectacular and the most feared boxer in the division. There is a lot of work ahead, but fasten your seat belts. Adonis is going to have an incredible year."

[QUOTE=J The UnBiased]I smell a Garcia/Matthyse repeat. I got Stevenson by UD.[/QUOTE] Does that mean you suspect Kovalev will suffer an eye injury and be forced to fight with one arm?
