Colisee de Quebec, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
Morning, noon and night, for the past 12 weeks, Liverpool’s Tony ‘The Bomber’ Bellew has been thinking non-stop about Adonis ‘Superman’ Stevenson; the WBC and Ring magazine light heavyweight world champion.
Bellew (20-1-1, 12 KO’s), craves those titles so much, he is willing to do whatever it takes to get his hands on them. The 30-year-old can expect a frosty reception in Quebec on November 30, but he is not fazed one bit about his surroundings or his opponent; he certainly means business. Bellew refuses to believe the hype surrounding ‘The man of steel’ and believes he’s going to beat Stevenson up and man handle him on his way to victory.
Stevenson (22-1-0, 19 KO’s), is flying high in 2013. The Haiti-born, Quebec native has fought three times this year and won each time; looking mightily impressive in the process. The 36-year-old southpaw is a fearsome puncher (just ask Chad Dawson), but he’s also got boxing ability and a boxing brain. Stevenson’s a hungry champion and supremely confident also, fully intent on knocking Bellew out cold.
There would be no better way for Bellew to celebrate his 31st birthday then to celebrate it as a world champion, but he’s a big underdog in this matchup. Bellew does, however, have advantages in size, reach and height, so we will see whether everything can come together on the night to cause the upset.
