Tonight in Montreal, Quebec Canada; superstar Adonis “Superman” Stevenson puts his lineal light heavyweight title on the line against Polish contender Andrzej Fonfara. This marks Stevenson’s first venture over to HBO’s rival network Showtime. Should he win tonight he will likely pursue a lucrative showdown with living legend Bernard Hopkins.
Stevenson has the edge in punching power, speed, and experience. Fonfara has the superior chin and mental makeup. This is a much tougher fight for Stevenson than he likely realizes. Fonfara has underrated power and boxing skills. Stevenson will likely have to gut through some shaky early moments. Although, look for him to turn it on in the middle rounds and stop the game Fonfara in the 9th or 10th round.
What do you think of this weeks pick?
