Stevenson: I'd Face Ward in Oakland, Rematch in Montreal

By Ryan Burton

Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (21-1, 18KOs) saw his fan base significantly increase with his emphatic first round knockout of Chad Dawson on June 8th in their HBO televised fight. The Montreal resident  spoke to us on BoxingScene Radio about the many options he has for his next fight. 

"The fight I really want is Bernard Hopkins. The people here in Montreal know him. We could have two fights. I want to unify the titles and defend the WBC and IBF titles," Stevenson revealed.

Another fight that Superman is interested in is against Andre Ward. Stevenson has proposed that they fight once in Ward's hometown of Oakland, CA and stage the rematch in Canada. 

"I have no problem going to the United States.  It isn't far for me. I said I would go to Oakland and fight Andre Ward at 168 and then we have the rematch at 175 in Montreal. I still haven't got a response from Andre Ward," Stevenson told BoxingScene Radio.

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;13486755]He wants that Froch money and possible Chavez money.[/QUOTE] So Ward can't go up and than go down??? Froch isn't fighting Ward again, that won't happen. Ward doesn't need it, and certainly doesn't need to go to the UK, and…

Ward will thoroughly dominate Stevenson.

[QUOTE=4Corners;13486749]Ward needs to go up to 175 and fight Stevenson. I know he can make 168 probably, but god damn Andre.....if he doesn't go up to 175 for Adonis, I'll start losing respect for him. He should have gone up…
