Big Fight preview: Stevenson V Fonfara II

adonis

Details: WBC Light Heavyweight title – Sat June 3rd,   Bell centre, montreal, Quebec

Background: So, three years after their first fight, these two light-heavy contenders do it all again. Will it be another points victory or will an upset be on the cards…

Prediction: Adonis Stevenson hasn’t fought since July ’16 when he knocked out Thomas williams jr.  Now aged 39, will he have aged overnight? and will the mauling pressure style of fonfara wear him down this time?

If Stevenson still wants to remain a major player at 175 lbs then he needs to win this fight to have any chance of lining up a big fight against the other players – Andre Ward & Kovalev. Stevenson still believes he’s number 1 at light heavy, and while he might not be the force he was a few years ago, I believe he will have enough left in the tank to outpoint fonfara yet again. I think fonfara will have his moments and gradually land some hurtful shots, but his power and speed are not on the same level as stevenson…

Outcome: Stevenson by points decision
