In Montreal, Canada, last night, we didn?t quite get the fight we were hoping for.

In their first meeting Adonis Stevenson was taken the full twelve rounds by Andrzej Fonfara and last night we were expecting a close fight.

Instead, Stevenson defended his WBC light-heavyweight title in emphatic fashion, bludgeoning Fonfara to defeat in the second round.

Those in attendance at the Bell Centre, saw Stevenson execute the counter-punch with lethal effect, waiting for Fonfara to throw a lead and then counter-punching with deadly accuracy with his left hand.

The power was devastating and it looked as if Fonfara wasn?t going to make it through the first round when he hit the deck in round one. But survive he did but when Stevenson unleashed another barrage of punches, at the start of the second, Fonfara?s trainer, Virgil Hunter, asked the referee to stop the fight.

The win takes Stevenson to 29-1 with 24 wins coming by knockout whilst Fonfara sees his record slip to 29-5 with 17 wins coming by knockout.

After the fight Stevenson had this to say to the media,

?I know Fonfara is very dangerous. He?s a very good fighter.

?I take my time and I finish the job. I?m the greatest at 175. I don?t have to call out anybody. I?m Superman. Whoever, I?m ready for anybody.?

Can anybody live with Adonis Stevenson in the light-heavyweight division?
