After The Crossfire – UPDATED – Adonis Stevenson vs Dmitri Sukhotsky (with video)
Once again, it was the straight left hand.
WBC light-heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson successfully defended his title at Quebec’s Pepsi Colisee with a fifth round knockout of Russian challenger Dmitri Sukhotsky last night.
But now, the question remains louder: When will Stevenson defend against WBO, WBA and IBF titleholder Sergey Kovalev?
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Stevenson improved to (25-1-0, 21 KOs), while Sukhotskiy fell to (22-3-0, 16 KOs).
Stevenson reportedly bolted on an agreed 2013 HBO deal to fight Kovalev earlier in 2014 – disputed by Stevenson’s camp – which led to him signing with Showtime and fellow Canadian Jean Pascal moving in to fight Kovalev in March 2015.
