Kovalev 2, Pascal O: The Krusher Easily Defeats Pascal In Rematch

MONTREAL, QUEBEC – In front of the overwhelmingly pro-Pascal crowd, Sergey Kovalev once again proved he is THE light heavyweight champion of the world by defeating former champion Jean Pascal by seventh round TKO. With Roy Jones Jr. rapping him to the ring, and new trainer Freddy Roach flanking his side, Pascal emerged hoping to capitalize on his pre-fight insistence that a reinvigorated fighter would debut at the Belle Centre and challenge Kovalev. Once the participants were ready for action and the opening bell sounded, it was clear the rematch would progress and end just as the first pairing. Despite a commendable start from the challenger, Kovalev easily withstood Pascal’s hard looping shots and relentlessly battered him into submission.

Main Events Trolls Adonis Stevenson For His Bday

It’s no secret in boxing that Main Events (run by Kathy Duva) wants to see their champion, light heavyweight Sergey Kovalev fight WBC champion Adonis Stevenson (managed by power manager/advisor Al Haymon). After year long talks of Stevenson ducking Kovalev, the fight reached a turning point and was headed to purse bid.

Mismatch KO’s of the Weekend Courtesy of PBC

In addition to Saturday night’s Pay-Per-View from Las Vegas where Floyd Mayweather pitched a shut out against Andre Berto, the PBC banner presented two fights headlined by painfully obvious mismatches. The result, to brutal knockouts that were cringe worthy. Mismatch KO number 1: Adonis Stevenson vs. Tommy Karpency Yes, Karpency defeated Chad Dawson and “earned his spot to fight Stevenson” or whatever the current argument is for this match-up but lets be honest, this bout was ridiculous. Absolutely no disrespect to Karpency but we’re ready to see Stevenson vs Kovalev. I can’t speak for Stevenson but I’d become bored with these bouts. The mark of the best is earned by defeating the best and while…

Adonis Stevenson Goes The Distance To Defeat Bika

QUEBEC CITY — Although it went to the score cards, Adonis Stevenson managed to evade kryptonite once more. Before a capacity crowd in Quebec City, Stevenson defeated former super middleweight champion Sakio Bika by unanimous decision. Judges final scores, 115-111, 116-110 and 115-110. Fighting for the first time at light heavyweight, Bika’s power didn’t follow him along on the trip. Repeatedly falling victim to Stevenson’s powerful left hook, the blows that didn’t drop him left him struggling to find his footing. “I worked hard to be able to go for 12 rounds. I dropped him twice. He’s never been knocked out and I knew he’d come prepared to fight. I said I would be happy…

Stevenson: “Performance v Pascal didn’t impress me”
