Adonis Stevenson vs. Tony Bellew: Preview and Prediction for Title Bout
Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports
Adonis Stevenson will make the second defense of his light heavyweight title after blowing out former champion Tavoris Cloud in September.

Adonis Stevenson vs. Tony Bellew will take place this Saturday night at the Colisee de Quebec in Quebec City, Canada, and the WBC Light Heavyweight Championship will be on the line.

Stevenson captured the title this past June with a stunning one-round demolition of then-champion Chad Dawson. He successfully defended the title for the first time in September by stopping former champion Tavoris Cloud, and he enters this fight having scored nine straight victories inside the distance. His punching power is, in a word, lethal.

Bellew is the WBC mandatory No. 1 contender, but he isn't really well-known outside of his native United Kingdom. He's fought some solid opponents—including a close majority-decision defeat against Nathan Cleverly in 2011—but most are considering him a long shot to unseat the champion.

So here it is, all you need to know about Saturday night's big clash for the light heavyweight championship. This is your complete preview for Stevenson vs. Bellew!
