  1. I thought Cleverly would be an easy victim for Fonfara, but I was wrong! Great bout, I think there are two winners in such a fight. They made the Compubox machine explode :D

    1. Well said, Matt. Three winners, in fact, if you count the doctor who charged Cleverly for a new nose!

      Neither guy has much sense of defense, being Gatti-Ward reincarnations — walking highlight reels who make little distinction between taking a blow and dishing one out. So it wasn’t boxing of the highest order. It was simply great, gobsmacking fun. Can’t be gourmets every time, can we, haha.

  2. this was the best PBC card to date.
    Both fights were phone booth type fights. And tonight we get the GGG Vs Lemieux and Gonz Vs Villoria – THE BEST WEEKEND IN BOXING for the entire year.

    Most of us probably though the same mattsnow81.
    Having scene Kovalev run him (Cleverly) over and his subsequent bouts at higher weights. We assumed Fonfara, after his Stevenson fight and also post fights, would KO him. This shows why Stevenson avoids Kovalev.

    Cleverly has the hand speed but lacks the pop.

    1. Yeah, nobody was staggered in the fight, except maybe the crowd :) 2183 combined punches thrown. A record for the 175 lb. weight class, according to PBC. Also, Cleverly sustained a broken nose I read.

      Given that they are both managed by Haymon, and Stevenson is staying far away from Kovalev as you said, I think Stevenson-Fonfara 2 may be on the horizon.

      Their 1st encounter was pretty good, Stevenson visited the canvas once.

      1. I don’t think that Stevenson-Fonfara 2 is going to happening soon if would happen.
        It is about time for Stevenson to concentrate and fight the best competition in this category. Fonfara is a good boxer but in my opinion has very low chances of winning the bout.
        So, there aren’t many choices currently and the best guy is really though. Also Ward can get in the picture.

        1. well, yesterday it was announced Pascal- Kovalev 2 would take place at the beginning of 2016. Chickenson had until Friday to accept a fight against Pascal and refused. So that leaves few options of a big fight for Stevenson

    2. “This shows why Stevenson avoids Kovalev.” Absolutely.

      And Fonfara, who I like, would do well to avoid the Krusher too. But I think he just might get his own back against Stevenson in a rematch.

      First he’s going to have to start moving that stationary head. He was popped with so many uppercuts it looked like his ears would fall off.

      1. I just can’t wait for Lemieux vs GGG tonight :D Lemieux is a Quebecer :) I can’t believe he is still being neglected at 14-1, I put some money on him, not a lot, but just for fun :)

      2. I agree (couldn’t read this until a few hours ago – as I didn’t watch either fight (GG and Fonfara) until Sunday evening).

  3. Excellent fight with incredible action from both opponents. Cleverly was just trouble for Fonfara and the fight was very close but with the correct outcome.
    I really liked Cleverly’s style, his punches combinations, his determination, and above all his big hearth. Unfortunately, he has not pop in his punches at all.
