Then, I'd go with either Kovalev or Cleverly. Afterwards, he should go after the other belts (if he does fight Kovalev (WBO))... Beibut Shumenov (WBA) and Bernard Hopkins (IBF). I think that he could be able to become a undisputed champion... and then retire.
Those two victories have turned the 36-year-old native of Haiti from a fighter with great potential into a fighter to be feared, as well as fighter who is suddenly very marketable. Fans will want to see him fight going forward, particularly if he tangles with one particular opponent.
Sergey Kovalev is creating his own buzz among 175-pounders. The hard-punching Russian reduced then-unbeaten Nathan Cleverly into his personal piñata last month, scoring a fourth-round knockout and thrilling everyone who saw it.
Stevenson vs. Kovalev would be a dream come true for those who crave action fights between tough, skillful opponents.
According to CompuBox statistics, Stevenson landed 108 of 434 punches (25 percent) and Cloud landed just 35 of 176 (20 percent). But the more meaningful statistic came in the power punch category, where Stevenson connected on 85 of 160 blows (53 percent), while Cloud landed a measly 15 of 55 (27 percent).
