BoxingScene.com reported earlier today that WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20KOs) retained the services of very influential boxing adviser Al Haymon. Stevenson will be back in action on May 24th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. He will face top contender Andrzej Fonfara.

HBO, who Stevenson has a multi-fight deal with, wants him to take part in a unification fight with WBO champion Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 20KOs), who faces Cedric Agnew on March 29th.

Stevenson is interested in facing Kovalev, but now that he has Haymon at his side - he wants to be properly compensated for the match.

"I want to be paid at the height of what I've accomplished. I was named boxer of the year, I had the award for best knockout of the year. With a manager like Al Haymon, I do not have to worry about my salary. There is obviously Mayweather [in Haymon's stable], but after him I'm going to be [Haymon's] priority," Stevenson said to Nicolas Martineau.

"I'll be the first one to unify the titles [at 175-pounds]. The only thing that will change is that I'm going to get paid what I'm worth. I want to fight with Kovalev but I'm not going to fight with him for $1 million dollars. A fight of this magnitude is worth a lot more than that."

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny]Stevenson has options, Kovalev not so much. I can get why Stevenson would want to wait on a Kovalev fight, but it just straight up sucks for boxing fans if he does...expect Kovalev to plow a trail of destruction through the Agnews of the LHW division while Stevenson gets the...

[QUOTE=kombayn]I honestly don't think that it's that far-fetched. In Al Haymon's stable who can really generate a name like Adonis Stevenson? He's a KO artist, HUGE in Canada and the lineal Light Heavyweight champion of the world. If he can keep this up, then his name only gets bigger. I think Ad...

Is Stevenson this incompetent that he needs another agent to simply say "I want more money"? When it is said "he's dumber than he looks", it seems to apply to Stevenson.
