Fonfara: I Proved Adonis Stevenson is No Superman!

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=jreckoning;14589589]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…

[QUOTE=Szef99;14590471]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…
