Light heavyweight contender Andrzej Fonfara (28-3, 16 KOs) is hungry to get his hands on WBC champion Adonis Stevenson (27-1, 22 KOs) for a second time.
They fought eighteen months ago in Canada. Stevenson got off to a fast start, dropping Fonfara twice and dominating him in the early rounds. Fonfara slowly came back and finished strong in the championship rounds when he had Stevenson down and in trouble. Stevenon won a unanimous decision.
Fonfara is returning from a hard-fought twelve round decision victory over Nathan Cleverly. The bout broke the CompuBox record for punches thrown in a light heavyweight fight.
The Polish boxer feels Stevenson is starting to decline in the ring. The Canadian puncher is already 38-years-old. Fonfara is ten years younger at 28.
"My next fight is looking like late March or early April. Stevenson is showing his age. I hope that we'll get another [fight] with him soon. We're trying. However, this time I want our fight to take place in Las Vegas," said Fonfara.
