Adonis Stevenson with a Massive KO against Sukhotsky

Post by God of Thunder on Sat Dec 20, 2014 6:07 am



Linear light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson took his time in his Showtime-televised main event against Russian challenger Dmitriy Sukhotskiy, but he eventually delivered on his promise of a sensational knockout.

The capacity crowd inside the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Quebec, was expecting fireworks from the start on Friday, but Sukhotskiy’s awkward defensive posture and lack of offense did not leave too many openings for the Haitian-born, Montreal-based champion. Stevenson scored a knockdown in the second round, but the lack of action for the next two frames left his hometown fans uneasy.

Midway through the fifth round, a sizzling straight left hand floored Sukhotskiy. He beat the count but was quickly knocked to the canvas moments later by a flurry. The challenger beat the count again, but he was clearly shaken. From there, “Superman” was all over his prey, throwing caution to the wind and gunning for the stoppage.

Stevenson just keeps getting better.

I've watched basically all his available fights.

I haven't seen the whole fight. But even just based on the clip, he looks sharp.

But based on watching his fights over time, I think he has yet to peak, honestly.

Or perhaps he's at his peak now.

He's a very exciting and talented fighter.

I hope he fights Sergey Kovalev in the coming year.
