The postponed super-middleweight eliminator bout between Adonis Stevenson and Donovan George wasn’t postponed for too long — what was once scheduled for Aug. 11 in Montreal will now be taking place Aug. 17 in Tulsa, Okla., according to Stevenson’s promoter, Yvon Michel, who posted that news on his Facebook page on Wednesday night.

Stevenson-George was initially scheduled for the undercard to Tavoris Cloud vs. Jean Pascal. But when the main event was postponed after Pascal suffered an injury in training camp, the co-feature was left, for the moment, up in the air.

It didn’t remain up in the air too long. The season finale of ESPN2’s “Friday Night Fights” was originally slated to take place in San Francisco and feature Karim Mayfield vs Mauricio Herrera. But Herrera got hurt during training camp and pulled out as of July 21. And Mayfield himself pulled out at the end of July, also citing an injury.

That apparently opened up room for Stevenson-George. The winner of that fight will become the mandatory challenger to the International Boxing Federation belt currently held by Carl Froch.

Stevenson, 34, is 18-1 with 15 knockouts. He last fought in April, stopping Noe Gonzalez Alcoba. George, 27, is 22-2-1 with 19 knockouts and is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Edwin Rodriguez in March.

Carl Froch already disposed of a dangerous Canadian boxer in spectacular fashion. You would think that Mikkel Kessler would be willing to do the same, but Adonis Stevenson appears to be too much risk with too little reward for him at this time.

[QUOTE=BattlingNelson][URL=""][/URL][/QUOTE] That was a mean punch. No wonder Adonis is scared.
