Stevenson vs. Karpency

Stevenson vs. Karpency
Stevenson is an imperfect fighter, but compared to Karpency he’s the rebirth of Joe Gans.

Stevenson hasn’t lost a fight in five years. The men he beat had winning records, and in some cases were undefeated…

Adonis Stevenson and Sergey Kovalev need to fight each other. Both have knockout power. They’re the two best light heavyweights on the planet.

What in are they waiting for?

Stevenson and Kovalev fight men of lesser talent. Kovalev did it in his last fight against Nadjib Mohammedi. Stevenson does it in his next fight against Tommy Karpency.

On September 11th at the Ricoh Coliseum, in Toronto, Canada, WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (26-1, 21 KOs) from Blainville, Quebec, Canada, by way of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, will defend his title against WBC #9 rated contender Tommy Karpency (25-4-1, 14KOs), from Adah, Pennsylvania.

The fight will be televised live by Premier Boxing Champions on Spike TV.

Stevenson hasn’t lost a fight in five years. The men he defeated had winning records, and in some cases were undefeated, but none of them, not Sakio Bika, not Andrzej Fonfara, not Tony Bellew, not Tavoris Cloud, not Chad Dawson, have anything approaching the star power and raw talent of Kovalev.

Karpency is riding a four-fight win streak, including victories over former WBC champion Chad Dawson and 23-26-2 Rayco Saunders in his last two fights. But he has gone 6-3 in his last nine contests. Those three losses were to Andrzej Fonfara and Nathan Cleverly in 2012 and Karo Murat in 2010.

No one expects Karpency to beat Stevenson. Stevenson is an imperfect fighter, but compared to Karpency he’s the rebirth of Joe Gans.

After Stevenson stops Karpency, the talk of his fighting Kovalev can resume. If that fight can’t be made, for whatever reason, Stevenson can fight Jean Pascal. He’s not Kovalev’s caliber, but Pascal’s light years better than the men Stevenson has faced.

    Mismatches just as shitty and dirty as PEDs in this so called sport….Thompson found to be a dirty dog bastard after destroying Price and Paulie says Manny was juiced to the gills when he literally buzz sawed his way through Dela Hoya, Hatton, Cotto, Clottey, Margarito, and Mosley….no real complaints from these guys who were probably dirty too. The devastating KO by an obviously enhanced Marquez was like Karma for the brutal KO of Hatton who still thinks he was hit by a Goddamned meteorite..
