Adonis Stevenson: I'd Beat Bellew's Ass Again, KO Him in The UK!

WBC light heavyweight world champion Adonis Stevenson (29-1-1, 24 KOs), 40-years-old, went to a twelve round majority draw with Badou Jack (21-1-3, 13 KOs) last weekend at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

Stevenson faded in the late rounds of the fight, but managed to hold on to the final bell.

In the aftermath, Stevenson has no shortage of options on the table.

The two most immediate options is a rematch with Jack or a WBC mandatory obligation against Oleksandr Gvozdyk.

Other options include the winner of the August clash between Sergey Kovalev and Eleider Alvarez, or a catch-weight bout against Tony Bellew, who recently stated that he's willing to drop down in weight for a rematch. Bellew was stopped by Stevenson back in 2013 - which still remains as the last defeat on the Liverpool boxer's record.

There is also IBF champion Artur Beterbiev or WBA champion Dmitry Bivol.

“I’ve got a lot of options,” Stevenson said to Premier Boxing Champions. “I’ll take anyone, no problem, if the money is right.

“I can fight the winner of Kovalev-Alvarez. If Kovalev gets into the ring with me, I will knock him out. Or I’ll unify against somebody and be undisputed, whether it’s Bivol, Kovalev, Beterbiev … I can fight Tony Bellew and beat his ass again. I could go to England and fight at a catch-weight and knock him out again.”

Everyone believes Stevenson is nearing the end of his career. But, he's now 16-0-1 with 14 KOs since tasting defeat at the hands of Darnell Boone in 2010. Stevenson got revenge when he stopped Boone in their 2013 rematch.

“People wrote me off after losing to Darnell Boone. I came back, knocked Boone out and got revenge,” said Stevenson. “There’s no other man in the division who is on my level. My body’s healthy. I’m focused to train. I’m the king of the division.”

Funny how some think this should be at CW... Hell, Stevenson said he could make SMW anytime still... Let's drain Bellew to death and see how he does ... :) Any rematch should absolutely take place at LHW... Bellew doesn't…

bellew looks terrible vs a clearly out-of-shape drained cleverly, beats unproven makabu for a vacant paper belt, has a razor close fight vs masternak, and then beats one-legged haye twice and now people think he beats stevenson at any weight…

Stevenson was always overrated...i knew Jack was going to be on his ass. Tbh i think Bellew sparks him in a rematch if its at cruiser
