Adonis Stevenson is Not Taking Andrzej Fonfara Lightly

By Ryan Burton

WBC/Lineal light heavyweight champion Adonis "Superman" Stevenson confirmed to BoxingScene.com that he will indeed face Polish contender Andrzej Fonfara on May 24th in Montreal, Canada.

The fight appeared to be a done deal over a month ago but after Stevenson's recent signing with powerful boxing adviser Al Haymon, there were rumors that Stevenson may go in another direction.

"My next fight is May 24th.  I am going to fight Andrzej Fonfara," Stevenson confirmed.  "That fight is going to happen.  Now that I am with Haymon I don't have to worry about the business part of boxing.  I just have to worry about training hard and fighting in the ring."

Fonfara is known as a tough fighter but isn't regarded as being close to the same caliber of fighter that Stevenson is.  Nevertheless, the Montreal based Haitian said that he isn't taking any chances against the Pol, saying that he won't take him lightly.

"Fonfara is a good fighter.  At this level you can't overlook anyone. I will be ready for him.  I know he is working hard and he will be coming to win," Stevenson stated.

The 36-year-old Stevenson finished our conversation by thanking his growing fan base for their support.

"Thanks to all my fans.  I appreciate all of the support.  Everyone can follow me on Twitter @adonissuperman," Stevenson told BoxingScene.com.

Fonfara is coming to fight for his life against Stevenson. I wouldn't be surprised if Fonfara pulls off the win.

Does anyone know that if Stevenson signed that HBO extension or not? I wouldn't be surprised if Stevenson is also moving to Showtime and go after the Hopkins/Shumenov winner.
