The WBC Light Heavyweight Championship will be on the line this Saturday night from the Bell Centre in Montreal as champion Adonis Stevenson defends against former belt-holder Tavoris Cloud.
Stevenson won the title this past June with a shocking one-round demolition of former champion Chad Dawson. The fight lasted only 76 seconds and ended when a Stevenson left cross nearly ejected Dawson from the arena. It was a statement-making victory and one the champion hopes he'll continue to build upon this weekend.
Cloud is a former light heavyweight belt-holder who has fallen on hard times his last two fights. He struggled to retain his IBF title with a hotly disputed decision victory over Gabriel Campillo in early 2012 and then lost the title to Bernard Hopkins by clear unanimous decision this past March. He'll be looking to rebound and re-establish his position in the 175-pound division with a win.
The fight is sure to be exciting, and both guys have great punching power, so it might not last long. Read on for our complete preview and prediction for this Saturday's big championship fight!
