December 1, 2018 will be the evening for boxing fans with the presentation of the fight headlining Adonis Stevenson at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City.
Adonis Stevenson will be at the Videotron Center in Quebec City on December 1, 2018 to defend his WBC (World Boxing Council) light heavyweight title against Ukrainian Oleksandr Gvozdyk. This will be the 10th title defense for “Superman” who has a professional record of 29 wins, one loss and one draw while putting his opponents out of action 24 times before the bell. His opponent, bronze medalist at the 2012 Olympic Games presented in London, holds for his part an immaculate record of 15 wins with 12 KO since he made the leap among professionals.
During his most recent visit to the Videotron Centre (link to website https://www.lecentrevideotron.ca) on July 29, 2016, Stevenson hit Thomas Williams Jrr in the fourth round with his terrifying hand left. He has since KO’d Andrezj Fonfara and won a majority decision against Badou Jack.
Many were hoping his next title defense would be against another boxer from Group Gym, Colombian Eleider Alvarez who holds the World Boxing Organization (WBO) belt, in a fight that would undoubtedly have been the most important in the history of boxing in Quebec. Unfortunately, for monetary reasons and not to displease Stevenson, the owners of the group that trains the 2 boxers decided to oppose Gvozdyk, who is the mandatory challenger to the Stevenson belt according to the WBC. Boxing is strange, isn’t it?
But, probably for the same reasons, there is a good chance that this super-fight between two athletes who consider Quebec as a land of adoption will materialize in the event of a Stevenson victory on December 1st.
The undercard will once again feature several rising Quebec fighters in the boxing world. Mikael Zewski (31-1, 22 KOs), Marie-Ève Dicaire (13-0, 0 KOs) and Sébastien Bouchard (16-1, 6 KOs) will all be there.
This is another very high quality card that GYM presents to us on the evening of December 1, 2018, for the fight of Adonis Stevenson at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City.
