Stevenson stops Boone in 6th! Fury stops Whittom

boone22By Jeff Sorby: Adonis Stevenson (20-1, 17 KO’s) was able to avenge his defeat against journeyman Darnell Boone (19-21-3, 8 KO’s) by giving him a terrible beating and stopping him in the 6th round on Friday night at the Bell Centre, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

It’s rare that you see a fighter ranked as high as the #1 IBF Stevenson dipping into the 2nd tier ranks to fight a journeyman like Boone, but for Stevenson it was personal because he had been knocked out in the 2nd round by Boone three years ago.

Stevenson paid him back on Friday night by giving him a furious beating that ended with Stevenson hurting Boone with a left uppercut to the head, and then knocking him out with a straight left hand finisher. The shot put Boone down face first on the canvas where he laid for some time before getting back to his feet. The fight was halted at 2:43 of the round. Continue reading
