Stevenson too strong for Bellew

Stevenson too strong for Bellew

Tony Bellew has lost his bid to take the WBC light-heavyweight title from Canada’s Adonis Stevenson in Quebec City.

Stevenson won in a sixth-round stoppage as the Canadian’s punches proved too powerful.

A huge left-hand knocked Bellew to his feet, and the fight was stopped when the Liverpudlian was boxed into a corner moments later.

The 31-year-old Bellew, who lost a world title challenge to Nathan Cleverly in 2011, had been ranked as the underdog against the 36-year-old Stevenson.
