Fonfara: Stevenson Showing His Age, I Want Rematch

By Luke Furman

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.

I wouldn't mind seeing them go at it again. There's good fights to be made at 175, but they aren't being made...so this rematch as an alternative his decent IMO.

[QUOTE=Real Talk85;16211260]How has he not fought Kovalev yet? He is clearly better than anyone not named Stevenson or kovalev.[/QUOTE] It's all dumb boxing politics..

Doesn't it sound a little pathetic/cowardly for a fighter to point out another fighter is starting weaken and so they want to fight them? Also, why Vegas uhhhg. That fights belongs in so many other places than Vegas.

If you watch Stevenson last fight again his legs wobbled from a punch from Karpency.
