Bellew Tabs Adonis Stevenson To Overcome Kovalev

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;14155023]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…

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…
