By Luke Furman

Polis light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (25-3, 15 KOs) proved to be a solid fighter in Saturday's twelve round decision loss to WBC champion Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (24-1, 20 KOs) at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. Fonfara went down in the first round and then once again from a shot to the body, but he rallied in the second half of the contest to hurt and drop Stevenson in the ninth round.

"I'm sorry that I did not win, but I will try to do more for all my fans. I proved that Adonis is not Superman. He was better, but I still came back. The mistake that I made was throwing so few combinations. Now I have to train harder to be a future world champion. I am proud that I survived [the entire twelve rounds]. I worked hard in the last three rounds because I wanted to secure a victory, but I did not succeed. Such is life," Fonfara said.

[QUOTE=Szef99]I'm really proud of Fonfara.....I told you guys, Fonfara is tough as fuck. He'll bounce back, he's only 26. As for Stevenson...I fuckin hate that dude even more than I've ever hated Broner. B-Hop will outpoint him easily maybe even TKO him in later rounds. Stevenson has stamin...

[QUOTE=jreckoning]I think the issue with Fonfara is that he was underrated on here and at the books. He's always been tough, and tends to turn it on late. He beat the B level guys he was supposed to. People are hard on Stevenson but I think who he chooses as a next opponent will go a long ...

[QUOTE=Szef99]Give me a break, his hype started a year ago and he already thinks he's on Mayweather's level: "money comes first", "i'm the cashcow" etc. Not to mention, he openly ducked Kovalev. Him being a pimp doesn't help either.[/QUOTE] You said it!! Ghetto is a dying fashion statement. Bri...
