Adonis Stevenson To Badou Jack: Rematch Must Be in Canada!

WBC light heavyweight world champion Adonis Stevenson retained his title on Saturday night in Toronto, in a high contact clash with Badou Jack.

The bout ended in a majority draw, which didn't satisfy either boxer.

Stevenson, 40-year-old, kept the title after two judges scored the bout 114-114 and the third saw Jack as a 115-113 winner in the title bout at Toronto.

Stevenson, who had not fought since stopping Andrzej Fonfara in their rematch last June in Montreal, dominated early but struggled late as Jack bloodied the champion's nose in the eighth round and controled the pace to the finish.

Stevenson's record went to 29-1-1 while Jack settled for his fourth career draw against 22 wins and a lone defeat.

All three judges awarded Jack the 12th round to lift him into the draw, which could set the stage for a title rematch.

Jack is ready, but wants Stevenson to fight outside Canada for the first time since September 2011.

"Let's do a rematch. Let's do it in Vegas," Jack said. "I came to his place. Now it's his turn to come to my place."

Stevenson extended the second-longest active reign in boxing. He knocked out Chad Dawson for the crown in 2013 and since then stopped six of eight prior foes with two other victories by unanimous decision.

Stevenson made it clear that any rematch would have to head back to Canada.

Because of Stevenson's criminal record, he's unable to fight in the United States - but he's not interested in fighting anywhere else either.

"The belt is in Canada, so if he wants it he has to come here to get it. It's not for him to decide [where the rematch takes place], because he's not the champion," Stevenson said.

"There are not a lot of world championship fights being held in Canada and it's good for the development of the sport. Fights like these to inspire young people."
