Stevenson Says Carl Froch's Deadline is Running Short

Super middleweight Adonis Stevenson is counting down the days until Carl Froch makes a decision on his next move. If Froch (30-2, 22 KOs) reaches a deal for a rematch with Mikkel Kessler, they will have a unification in the next few months. If not, Froch has to defend his IBF title against Stevenson or face the possibility of being stripped.

If the belt is left vacant, Stevenson (19-1, 16 KOs) could battle IBO champ Tommy Oosthuizen (21-0-1, 13 KO) for the vacant belt on March 2 in Connecticut, and HBO televising.

"Froch is in talks for a unification against Mikkel Kessler, but no contract has been signed," said Stevenson to QMI Agency.

"Should Froch, Kessler, the IBF and WBA all agree - I need confirmation that I will face the winner. That's a lot of pieces to the puzzle and they have 15 days to file the contract. Otherwise, I will fight for the vacant IBF title, since Froch's crown would be vacant. I'm waiting. Whether it's Froh or someone else, what I want is the title."

From what I've seen of Tommy (which isn't a huge amount), he looks like he gets clipped easily. Took a few punches in the Rowland Bryant fight.

[QUOTE=MJ223]If Froch is stripped I wouldn't mind Ward vs the Stevenson-Oosthuizen winner though that would seem unlikely.....[/QUOTE] I think Ward would fight Stevenson if he would travel to Oakland. Not so certain on Oosthuizen since he is not as popular.

I think Froch beats Stevenson.
