The rematch between Adonis Stevenson and Andrzej Fonfara left little to no doubts about who was the better man on Saturday night.
Stevenson toyed with Fonfara and landed several big shots in the first round. Eventually the Polish fighter got dropped to the canvas. Stevenson then backed his opponent against the corner and Fonfara was eating heavy shots until he was saved by the bell.
Stevenson was landing countless heavy lefts in the second round and Fonfara was showing very little resistance. The referee eventually stepped in and stopped the fight. The Polish fighter did not go down but he was simply not showing enough push back to have kept the fight going.
“I was focused on the fight, and you saw what happened. My hands were moving very good, and you saw what happened. Fonfara tried, but I was ready for this fight. I know Fonfara is very dangerous. He’s a good fighter, so I was very focused on him. When I had the chance to catch him I caught him. I took my time and I finished the job,” said Stevenson according to worldboxingnews.net.
The WBC light heavyweight champion has now defended his title nine consecutive times. Stevenson is currently on a sixteen fight win streak and his stoppage win against Fonfara was his 24th TKO/KO victory.
