Adonis Stevenson has become a much-talked about fighter these days. The light heavyweight champion from Canada on Saturday gave people even more to talk about with yet another defense that ended inside the distance.
Stevenson, 36, stopped Tony Bellew of England in the sixth round of their main event in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
That gives Stevenson a record of 23-1 with 20 knockouts; he has a knockout ratio of 83.3 percent.
The fight was televised by HBO.
Another light heavyweight champion – Sergey Kovalev of Russia – also defended his title in impressive fashion in the semi-main event. Kovalev knocked out Ismayl Sillakh (21-2) of the Ukraine in the second round.
Kovalev, 30, is now 23-0-1 with 21 knockouts. He has a knockout ratio of 87.5 percent, leaving one to wonder what a fight between Stevenson and Kovalev would produce.
