Adonis Stevenson: I Look Forward To Knocking Badou Jack Out!

Undefeated knockout artist Adonis Stevenson, the longest reigning light heavyweight world champion, will defend his title against two-division champion Badou Jack on Saturday, May 19 live on SHOWTIME from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.
 
The showdown between Stevenson and Jack is one of the most intriguing matches in the light heavyweight division as Jack (22-1-2, 13 KOs), a former 168-pound and 175-pound champion, has relinquished his title for the chance to challenge one of the hardest hitters in the sport. Both men are looking to make their claim as the class of the division.
 
Stevenson vs. Jack is part of a split-site SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® telecast beginning at 10 p.m. ET/PT with featherweight champion Gary Russell, Jr. defending his title against mandatory title challenger Joseph Diaz from the MGM National Harbor in Maryland on Saturday, May 19.

Tickets for the Toronto show, which is promoted by Groupe Yvon Michel, Lee Baxter Promotions and Mayweather Promotions, are on sale Friday, April 27 and will be available at www.ticketmaster.ca.
 
Stevenson (29-1, 24 KOs) owns one of the most powerful left hands in boxing and goes by the ring moniker "Superman''. The 40-year-old Stevenson has made eight successful defenses of his title since winning it with a knockout victory over Chad Dawson in 2013. The lineal 175-pound champion most recently defended his title with a second-round stoppage of Andrzej Fonfara last June and delivered a third round TKO over Tommy Karpency in his most recent defense in Toronto in 2015.
 
"I'm definitely excited and hungry to get into the ring and perform," said Stevenson. "I've trained very hard for this fight against Badou Jack. I'm looking forward to winning this fight by knockout. I'm from the Kronk Gym and we always look for the knockout. Jack is a good, technical boxer. He was a world champion and he has done very well. He's tough and I won't underestimate him. I'll be prepared for anything he brings in the ring.
 
"I'm fighting him at home in Canada, so I'm looking to give the fans a good show. I've got power and I've got the best left hook in boxing. I've got 12 rounds and I just need to touch you once to end it. It's not complicated. I don't need three or four shots. I just need one shot and you're not going to recover. I'm going to finish you."

Based on the fact that Jack is on a really strong run of good performances and Stevenson has been feasting mostly on nobodies for years (last good win imo was Bellew in 2013,) I think Jack will win convincingly. Stevenson…

I look forward to Adonis being out of the sport. Idc if someone beats him or he retires having never lost another fight. He's had a boring, who gives a f#ck career for most of his time as a title…
