“Whatever one may think of his past—his well-documented immersion in a flesh trade far more heinous than the one he now embraces—Stevenson, Longueuil, Quebec, Canada, has made every effort to keep that shadow cast behind him. However ironic his relationship with violence may be, Stevenson has found his salvation in hurting people, and he is enjoying a career year. In March, Stevenson knocked out Darnell Boone, avenging his only professional loss. A fight with light heavyweight Chad Dawson followed. Dawson, who had made a living off the seniors circuit, was blown out by the older Stevenson in just over a minute. Snarling Tavoris Cloud was next, but he could barely muster a whimper against Stevenson, who beat the bully out of Cloud for seven merciless rounds. Bellew, Liverpool, Merseyside, United Kingdom, swore to be different. And for the first few rounds, he made good on his promise.”
