Some blind people still not recognizing just how strong Adonis Stevenson is. Most boxers would not have survived that fifth round – but Donavan George appears to be a very resilient dude.He prepared well defensively for the head shots, but he may not have seen some of the earlier Stevenson fights where he just taps the guy on the liver with his left and the guy collapses like he was shot. Under Steward and Hill, Stevenson doesn’t fight as squared up as before and was landing rights to the kidney and that monster left to the solar plexus was the difference in the fight.

He’s no Boon Kirkman.. Especially now that he’s learning something… The 168 pound division looks more and more interesting… Or as Stephen A Smith says, “Interestinger and interestinger.”

Don’t count George out, he’s still young, if he can overcone his bad habits and get his footwork under controll he can be a force to be reckoned with. I didn’t get to see the fight, but from what I’ve read it sounds likehe was getting hurt to the body for the most part. You can toughen up the body, not the chin, so there may be hope for him yet.

How about Stephenson challenging Commonwealth champion George Groves?

I’m counting Don George out… He can’t get past the top rated 168-pounders. He just doesn’t have the skills. I would love to see a Rodriguez-Stevenson fight—a tremendous matchup. I’m a little doubtful Froch will fight Stevenson, despite the fact that Stevenson is just now finding his ring legs. Froch is in a fairly safe position to make money, either against big name opponents or safe opponents. Stevenson showed in this fight he’s not safe. He’s willing to take chances to get you out.

People don’t count out Don Da Bomb George! He may have lost but the guy can put a loss on anybodys record with time. George is the kind of guy to come back and learn from his mistakes and before you know it, he’s back on Top again. He will be World Champion one day soon. It’s just a matter of Time!!! Mj

Scary KO from Lemieux on the co-feature, but I still wonder if he’s learned yet how not to burn himself out. IF he has, then he’s unstoppable, but he’ll keep getting knocked back the top men if hasn’t.

Stevenson showed some power, but George is a stand in front of you slugger who turned out to be the one with the weaker chin when they traded. Bute would KO him. Froch would KO him. Ward would probably KO him after befuddling his one dimensional style for six or seven rounds. Stevenson deserves his shot, but he won’t ever win a title because even when the top men go, this division is still ripe with top guys who would beat him still.

I can’t see Stevenson beating Froch or Bute.

Stevenson is a glass jawed joke. He gets killed b anyone that has a punch and decent workrate. Everytime George landed a significant shot he hurt him. Boon KTFO’d him in one round!!! a guy with a 50% winning record and a less than 50% KO rate. Stevenson gets sparked by Froch, Bute and embrassed and shut out by Ward.

Take MY advice and stay away from Ward.

Big win for Adonis. And for once we had a worthy title eliminator bout with both Adonis and George quality boxers.

Congrats to Stevenson but at 35 yrs. old , time is not on his side. If he wants to be a notable fighter in this division he needs a big fight now.

The fight went exactly the way I thought that it would. with Donovan George gradually being weaken, broken down and eventually stopped in the later rounds.

George showed a lot of courage but he was eventually outgunned.

KO KIDD

I dont think he would have more than a punchers chance vs Ward…who knows Ward has been down and shook up before….Vs Froch i dont know if he could hurt Froch,,,Froch took Bute and Abrahams shots just fine

KO KIDD

The first half of that fight was amazing and looked like it would be a fight of the yr type. Then Stevenson took over. I thought George recovered in between rounds after 2 KD’s. Then in the next round he was hurt to the body again…Stevenson looked like he punched himself out in nearly stopping the fight. Then Stevenson seemed to be content to box to the decision and George had no idea how to close the gap and couldnt land more that 1 shot at a time always missing his next shot

@ ANYONE who thinks Froch would NOT steamroll Stevenson………

George threw a combined 25 punches in the first 2 rds. Froch would land 25 in the first. I like George. He a chitownfightfan. He rules my old haunts. But he’s no world beater. FROCH is.
Carl Froch would literally steamroll Adonis Stevenson. LITERALLY!

I was impressed with Adonis ability to maintain pressure. I thought he was done early in the fight, but he looked even stronger in the 12th round…….If I was Froch, I’d try to stall my title defense with him as long as I could since Adonis is 35…..and he might not be as strong in 2/3 years. But, right now, is confidence is scary, and REAL!

Man Stevenson was simply amazing. Never would I have thought he could box like that, so diverse and so damn steady. He sure put the brakes at the right time when he was trying to finish him, after the liver shot, kuz he almost drained out . but showed remarkable “boxing ” skills by recovering from that, without slacking off enough to let George take flight.
That whole card will assuredly make noise, and Stevenson just jump right atop on boxing network “I want” lists.

Great boxing event, great for the sport and fans.
