[QUOTE=McDonough;19028528]What's wrong with Stevenson's shoulders?[/QUOTE] Cupping therapy. A lot of athletes in other sports use it. Stevenson is the first boxer I've seen use it though.

Will try tune in for Teslenko. He's a HW I have high hopes for. No idea who his opponent is but hopefully he can give Teslenko some good rounds.
