We will see but for now, Stevenson has proven he can box.

He has much improved his boxing from two years ago.
He was good but he just dominated Cloud with his boxing.

I think it is the first time Cloud can not finish a fight.

Where? Was it hidden behind the pool of blood?

Corner said "Cut over both eyes, can't continue". I think all those massive body blows in the 7th had something to say too. Strong chin, okay, but if you can't breathe...

That was a great fight for Stevenson, especially technically. Outlanded Cloud in punches 5 to 1. Ridiculous.

That British commentator was thinking that Bellew could outbox Stevenson but he now changes his view.

Not sure Froch would want to face Adonis.

They are talking about Kovalev vs Adonis
I don't know much about that guy, just heard his name here and there but never seen some of his fights. He's 22-0-1 (20ko) Seems like he's solid too.

Tony Bellew will be fighting Stevenson next. It will be late November, early December most likely.

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.

After the second round, in Cloud's corner they said : Let the clown run about.

They forgot to mention the clown is SUPERMAN in disguise lol

Cloud had a good defensively but not offensively. If it wasnt for the cuts he was going to go 12 rounds

Pretty sure he would have gotten knocked out before it got to the 12th round.

Certainly not November. Even December seems near.
Maybe January in the same program as Pascal-Bute.

****kk missed the fights because of work.

My mom got me the autograph of Jean Pascal! Nice guy! She also could have asked for Adonis' but she did not know who he was. Great guy too!

Yes but WBC accepted to let Adonis do a fight before forcing him to face Bellew. I guess HBO did some representation and there was more money against Cloud than against Bellew.

Bellew is most likely next. He was hoping to outbox Stevenson but now he may not be so sure

We now have four Light heavyweight in the top (Top-10 of Boxrec):
Stevenson, Bute, Pascal and Alvarez.

His corner probably wanted him to avoid to be knocked off.
It is better to come out of a fight because of injuries than KO.

Still only the second time Cloud lost a fight.

Pretty sure Hopkins will never face Adonis.
He did win every round in this fight.

Not much wear and tear on Stevenson.
He can probably fight Bellew in November.
Not sure, Bellew can.

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).
