Stevenson Retains Title

Tweet

The night of the Southpaw was the proven kryptonite in a Showtime Boxing Special Addition. The man of Steal, Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) successfully defends his title against Dmitry “The Hunter” Sukhotskiy (22-3, 16 KOs) Saturday Night in his adopted home, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Pepsi Coliseum was filled with hometown fans rooting on their beloved Countryman. While the fight would get off to a slow start, Sukhotskiy would fall for the second time in his career during the 2nd round. ‘The Hunter’ would sail to the canvas another three times in the 5th round. Stevenson put an end to the competition by KO with a sharp straight punch which left the referee no other decision but to stop the fight giving Stevenson the official KO victory time of 2:42 in Round 2
 
The only rematch of the evening appeared more like a made for TV. Event, than it did a professional boxing bout. This welterweight eliminator proved a success for a second time; in favor of Jo Jo Dan (34-2, 18 KOs) who pulled out a split decision win over Canadian son, Kevin Bizier (23-2, 16 KOs). The action never stopped with more than 600 punches thrown between the two. Both fighters would repeat the same rough housing antics displayed in their first conflict. Although Jo Jo would get floored in the 7th, the match would remain close, with Dan edging out his rival, by fighting stronger in the middle rounds.   
 
 
The show stopping fight of the night would come when Super Middle Weight Andre “The Resurrected” Dirrell  (24-1, 16 KOs) out boxed opponent Derek The Black Lion” Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs).  While the 2004 Olympic Bronze winner struck gold with the southpaw stance, Edwards would stay on the grind, completing all 12 rounds. The action inside the ring was overshadowed by the Edwards corner sideshow performance, coupled with the mystery, of the Dirrell Brothers Grandfather being denied entry into the Country. The “Resurrection” put on an outstanding boxing clinic, getting the Unanimous Decision win. Scores were 120-108, 119-107, and 119-109
 
 
The first live broadcast of the evening set the stage for a literal jaw dropping night of fights. The scheduled 10-round bout came to a halt in round 2, when Artur Beterbiev (7-0, 7 KOs) floored Jeff Page (15-1, 10 KOs), adding another KO victory to his unblemished record. Both brawlers would eat the mat for the first time in their careers, but Page would visit the canvas a total of three times.  Official Time was 2:21
