Stevenson, Kovalev Doubleheader in Play For Nov. 30

By Rick Reeno

Promoter Yvon Michel is working hard to finalize the date of November 30th for the next title defense of WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (22-1, 19KOs). Michel tells BoxingScene.com that mandatory challenger Tony Bellew (20-1-1, 12KOs) will indeed be the next opponent. The Bell Centre in Montreal will not be available and Michel is trying to set the fight down in Quebec.

In the HBO televised co-feature, Sergey Kovalev (22-0-1, 20KOs) would make the first defense of his WBO light heavyweight title against a yet to be determined opponent.

HBO is slowly building a mouth-watering unification between Stevenson and Kovalev, potentially for 2014.

Kov vs Stevenson would be a fight where both sides would want to be paid handsomely. That cannot happen without making the fight mouth watering to the Montreal fans. Having them both fight on the same card is a big…
