Would you say he has a good shot to beat the best out there Ward Froch Kessler...etc. Was Steward just hyping up one of his students or did he really believe Adonis could wash out the super middleweight division in the near future??
An article from Feb 2012
He's ok, but not the fighter guys have made him out to be, he's strong and athletic. I could see him beating a few of the top 10 but make no mistake, the guy would get smoked by Froch or Ward. Not that that's anything to be ashamed of, as their great fighters. I'd like to see him fight George Groves or Tommy Oosthuizen.
