Canadian super middleweight destroyer Adonis ‘Superman’ Stevenson looked amazingly confident and poised as he absolutely walked down and destroyed the only man to ever defeat him as a professional in Darnell Boone moments ago at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada.
It was a game of high stakes Russian roulette as the two monstrous punchers traded throwing explosive knockout blows in the main event of Groupe Yvon Michel’s “Fast & Furious” card. Stevenson came storming out at the bell with little regard for Boone’s power. The Canadian charge raped his former conqueror with hard power shots looking very self assured.
He rocked Boone in the first and pounded him relentlessly in the second. To his credit Boone took some heavy fire and looked to counter in spots but he was completely overwhelmed.
Stevenson controlled the ring in the early going stalking Boone at every turn who just back peddled and looked for the occasional window to respond.
Boone made things interesting in the fourth as he opened up a bit more but Stevenson kept up his very aggressive pressure and started to go very hard to his man’s body.
Both men were loading up with absolute bombs and it made the stakes seem very high between the two monstrous punchers.
In Round 5 Stevenson really stepped it up and started to connect with some telling left hands that sent Boone reeling. The American challenger showed he has a tremendous chin but he was taking some heavy punishment.
In the sixth the punishment took it’s toll. Boone took a vicious body shot and took a knee. Despite the pain he got up and continued and shortly thereafter a big left uppercut that froze the American in his tracks. With super-hero speed Stevenson tee’d up and fired a home run of a left hand to put Boone down and OUT. He received the full ten count.
Stevenson stood towering over his fallen foe as he basked in the glory of redemption having put the only man to ever beat him out cold in their rematch. The win moved the powerful Canadian to 20-1 (17 KOs) and retained him his position as the WBC’s No. 1 contender.
A lucrative June date with light heavyweight world champion Chad Dawson could be in the works for Stevenson who also remains the mandatory for the winner of the Carl Froch-Mikkel Kessler mega fight this spring.
It would seem the sky’s the limit for ‘Superman’ after Friday’s triumphant win.
