Tony Bellew Picks Stevenson to beat Kovalev should they meet


Former light heavyweight world title challenger Tony Bellew weighs in his thoughts on a potential Adonis Stevenson v Sergey Kovalev match.

 

Bellew who lost by knockout to WBC champion Stevenson in December is picking his conqueror to topple the unbeaten Russian puncher. Responding to fans who asked the liverpudlian’s opinion on a potential unification match between the two big punching world champions, on social networking site Twitter, the ’Bomber’ stated:

 

"On a professional level I feel Stevenson’s defence is a major underrated weapon! He’s hard to hit, that’ll be the difference I feel, both have got serious power and could wipe each other out in an instant so I just feel that Stevenson’s elusiveness will be the difference." he continued "I genuinely hope I am wrong though cos if they do clash I’ll be cheering for Kovalev as he’s a top fella, just my opinion"

 

It would be a mouthwatering clash for fans should it come off, but with Jean Pascals recent victory over Lucien Bute, Stevenson could be tempted for a massive payday in an all Canadian showdown.
