By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20 KOs) has been given the green light by former opponent, Tony Bellew. Last November Stevenson stopped Bellew in six rounds, and now the fans are demanding a light heavyweight unification between Stevenson and WBO champion Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 21 KOs). Although Bellew likes Kovalev as a person, he feels Stevenson's defensive abilities will be the difference in a potential match.

"I like Kovalev he's a great guy and good for the sport and that's on a personal level, however on a professional level I feel Stevenson's defense is a major underrated weapon. He's hard to hit, that'll be the difference I feel, both have got serious power and could wipe each other out in an instant, so I just feel that Stevenson's elusiveness will be the difference. I genuinely hope I am wrong though, because if they do clash I'll be cheering for Kovalev as he's a top fella," Bellew voiced on the social networks.

[QUOTE=guitarboyled]Ok so, Cleverly was probably in some top 20 when Kovy faced him! Still doesn't make him a great fighter in my book! The first time he faced a little competition, he lost his belt. And we all know he'll never be champion again. Obviously Kovalev has power but will it be enou...

[QUOTE=guitarboyled]Adonis is taking a fight or two before Kovalev for financial reasons! You need to calm down with these scenarios in your heads! Once he beats Kovy there's no where else to go! He would be an idiot for taking that fight right now! Luckily for him he has better management ...

Yeah..I vaguely remember reading he thought Cleverly was going to beat Kovalev and even after the fight I remember him saying something like "he would have won if...." theres always something to learn from fighters but predicting the outcomes of fights is tough for anyone
