Stevenson: My Win More Impressive Than Kovalev KO

By Frank Stea

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18KOs) says his first round TKO of Chad Dawson was a more impressive victory than Sergey Kovalev's fourth round stoppage of Nathan Cleverly from last Saturday night in Wales. Kovalev (22-0-1, 20KOs) dropped Cleverly four times before the fight was stopped. Stevenson returns on September 28th against former champion Tavoris Cloud. Kovalev also plans to fight in the fall. HBO is reportedly interested in matching the two new champions.

"Who can beat Chad Dawson in 76 seconds? I fought Chad Dawson and beat him in 76 seconds. Of course it was more impressive [than Kovalev's victory]. I was at 168, I gained weight to 175-pounds. I fought the best light heavyweight in the world and knocked him out in 76 seconds. Who can beat that now?," Stevenson told ATG Radio.

I had a bad case of loser denial myself once, until the lacrosse team shoved a parking cons up my ass...

Kovalev-Stevenson is a fight that NEEDS to happen. I think Kovalev would win.

The Dawson knockout was more of a fluke. I would take Dawson to win the rematch. The Kovalev knockout was a result of a beatdown for 3 rounds.

[QUOTE=Rip Chudd;13668488]Nobody is saying it wasn't Stevenson. Is he insecure or something?[/QUOTE] This is exactly it. I'm sure he's reading the forums and comments and is jelly that [B]KO[/B]valev is all the talk now.
