Stevenson vs. Bellew

Stevenson obliterates Bellew; Kovalev crushes Sillakh

stevenson54WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20 KO’s) hammered Tony Bellew (20-2-1, 12 KO’s) at will with power shots en route to stopping him in the 6th round tonight at the Colisee de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. The fight was embarrassingly one-sided from start to finish, and it probably would have been over much sooner if Bellew hadn’t moved as much as he did.

In the 6th round, Stevenson hit Bellew with a big left to the head that sent him down on the canvas badly hurt. To Bellew’s credit he was able to staggered back to his feet, but Stevenson was on him right away in hitting him with a hard left hand that caused Bellew’s legs go stagger and look like noodles. Stevenson then hit a defenseless Bellew with two more left hands to the head that caused the referee to stop the fight to save Bellew from getting knocked down a 2nd time. Continue reading

Bellew will need a miracle to beat Stevenson

bellew45British fighter Tony Bellew (20-1-1, 12 KO’s) is going to need a miracle knockout to beat WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (22-1, 19 KO’s) on November 30th because he’s out of his league in every way you can imagine in this one. Bellew has wanted this fight for ages, and now that he’s got it he doesn’t look nearly ready.

While Bellew talks like he’s got the skills to beat Stevenson, the fact is Bellew doesn’t look like he’s in the same class as him. In the last two years of Bellew’s career, he hasn’t shown improvement from his defeat to former WBO light heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly. Continue reading
