Saturday night, at the Bell Centre in Montreal, was a disappointing night.

The main event, with Adonis Stevenson defending his WBC light-heavyweight title, against Andrzej Fonfara, was a one-sided disappointment with Stevenson taking under two rounds to stop his challenger.

Perhaps the writing was on the wall with Fonfara strangely being given a shot at the title after losing his last fight by a first round knockout at the hands of Joe Smith Jnr.

But what made the night doubly disappointing was that Stevenson was willing to proclaim himself as the king of the division but without issuing a challenge to the other key fighters in the weight division, Andre Ward and Sergey Kovalev who clash again soon.

This sport of ours needs these great match-ups to keep it thriving but Stevenson seems content to fight whoever Al Haymon puts in front of him with Stevenson boasting afterwards,

?I?m the king. I don?t have to call anybody.

?I?m Superman, baby. Whoever Al Haymon puts me with I?m ready, baby.?

At 39-years-of-age is Stevenson taking the easy option before hanging up his gloves?
