Adonis Stevenson destroys Andrzej Fonfara in rematch: A real fight next?

Andrzej Fonfara - The above headline might seem harsh, but it is written as a result of frustration. WBC light-heavyweight king Adonis Stevenson, just how good is he? This might come across as a pretty dumb question; after all, Stevenson has been champion for four years and he has made eight successful defences of his green belt, but his big title winning KO over Chad Dawson aside, “Superman's” quality of opposition has not exactly been elite level.

Stevenson vs. Fonfara 2: Sounds About Right for Adonis

Andrzej Fonfara - There's not much buzz or anticipation floating around the boxing twitter-sphere about the Showtime doubleheader coming up this Saturday. There are a few reasons why mainly due to Adonis Stevenson career being stuck in neutral since he shocked the world via first round KO versus then respected Chad Dawson in 2013.
