WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (24-1, 20 KOs) won an exciting, knockdown-filled twelve round unanimous decision over WBO #1, WBC #3 Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara (25-3, 15 KOs) on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. Fonfara came out aggressively but was dropped by a Stevenson left hand in round one. Stevenson pummeled Fonfara for the balance of the round. The “Polish Prince” got back into the fight over the next three rounds, but Stevenson put him down again in round five with a body shot. Fonfara started turning the tide in rounds seven and eight, then floored the champion with a right hand in round nine. Stevenson rediscovered the body attack to take round ten. Good two-way action the rest of the way. Scores were 115-110, 115-110, 116-109.
