Photos: Stevenson Presser Regarding Carl Froch Fight

MONTREAL - Finally, after much speculation about his next opponent, International Boxing Federation (IBF) super middleweight Carl "The Cobra" Froch (30-2-0, 22 KOs), of Great Britain, is forced to defend his belt against mandatory contender Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (19-1-0, 16 KOs). Photos by Robert Levesque/AR Photozone.

In a letter from IBF representative Lindsey Tucker, dated January 2, 2013, sent to the promoters of Froch and Stevenson, both parties were invited to negotiate and Jan. 15 was imposed as the deadline. If at that time the parties were unable to reach an agreement a purse bid would be held in the IBF offices in New Jersey.

If Froch, for whatever reason, decided to withdraw from this process then it would he removed as champion and Stevenson would be invited to fight for the vacant title against the next highest-ranking available IBF challenger. If Stevenson withdrew he would be excluded from the IBF's top 10 contenders for six months and the highest-ranked available contender would replace him.

"I'm finally realizing my goal of a world championship fight, facing a great champion like Carl Froch," Stevenson said about the turn of events. "I know he's had great victories during his career, particularly against two other Quebec fighters, Jean Pascal and Lucian Bute, but I have all of the tools needed to emerge victorious in a great fight. I would obviously like the fight to take place here in Quebec, but I have no problem winning the title in England, if necessary. "

I'm hoping for a brutal KO by Froch to take out that pathetic excuse of a human being Stevenson. I'd be even happier if Stevenson's legs do a quiver while he is prone on the canvas. Low life punk. Getting…

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;12889770]Part of me feels this way, but the guy was 21 in 1998. Everyone makes mistakes but given some of the stories coming out (like him KO-ing girls and the fact these girls did not want to become…
