  1. This was not a draw, Stevenson held for a majority of the fight. The blame has to be put on Jack though, he didn’t put him away like he should have. Can’t let the fight get to the score cards in AD’s hometown. Badou jack is going to have to wait 6 months + to retire Stevenson…

    1. Nice observation, but Toronto is not Adonis’ hometown. It was a neutral town since Adonis is kinda hated in his hometown of Montreal and Quebec City.

  2. Jack needed to step it up just one round earlier, but he played it safe too long. I wonder if Stevenson, who now gasses after six, will be back for a final payday or two? Meanwhile, the division is packed with talent.

    1. I’m sure a rematch will be made, the payday is gonna be good and this match was good enough to generate interest :) BTW, Chicken said Jack made 1.5M$, and would not disclose how much he made himself (which was kind of classless). Probably 2.5-3M$.

  3. I can’t believe Stevenson has done it again!… He was a lucky man tonight. The fight was very close in the first 6 rounds and I gave most of them to Stevenson, as he occupied the center of the ring and was able to keep Jack at bay with a good pace and the use of both hands. But clearly he punched himself out. The second half of the fight was all Badou Jack. I think 115-113 Jack was fair (could’ve been 116-112) and I felt he had done enough to secure the win in the last two rounds at the end of which he left Stevenson almost out on his feet in total exhaustion. Overall it was a tough and sluggish fight, lots of grabbing and wrestling.

    1. Haha, that cat has more than nine lives! He’s lucky he was in against a cautious veteran like Jack and not one of the young guns like Bivol. Or, for that matter, Kovalev, which is the only fight I’d ever want to see Adonis in again. My only complaint about last night was how much holding Supergrab was allowed to do.

      1. So it seems we’re stuck with Stevenson for another year or so as the WBC LHW champion… I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes another optional defence against à bogus contender… even if the WBC orders a rematch. Stevenson is so blessed by this organization.

        Lots of grabbing by Stevenson indeed, lots of low blows by Jack. Bivol, Kovalev, Beterbiev, and that new guy… I forgot his name… Ramirez? All better than these two.

      2. The ref told him repeatedly to stop holding. If he should have taken a point away, the reign of this clown would be over. :/

  4. Stevensons power has dwindled a bit even tho they say its the last thing to leave … he landed flush a few times on the suspect chinned jack in the second half and other than the rd10 body shot nothing seemed to affect jack much. This fight was 50/50 coming in and ended so. Jack should have pressed more and stevenson benefitted off the huge early lead. Adonis being 40 and rusty proved his heart, chin, warrior mindset and champ mentality. In a rematch if he works on his cardio and doesnt take another long layoff i think he takes it!!!! Also adonis showed he is in fact not one trick pony with long straight left hand. Great fight by todays standards!

  5. Good fight with a nice control of its first part by Adonis where. in my opinion he won all the rounds but one. However, after round # 6 Badou took the lead attacking Adonis with good efficiency till the point I though he may quit due to his decaying energy. Anyhow, he get some recovery being able to put Badou in jeopardy when he hit him in round # 10 with an excellent body punch. From there one the fight get some balance but with a Badou having a good 12 round and finishing in much better shape than Adonis. The fight was really close and draw result is probably Ok but i have Adonis winning by 115-113.
    I realized today that Adonis has no much more on his bag and may need to think soon in retirement.

    1. Nice view of the fight, Tango. I had the same score. Jack is a smart and skillful fighter, but to win he had to take more of the first half. That’s a big risk against even this older version of Adonis. As you say, retirement is on the way.

    2. @@tango2042:disqus you live in Ontario, isn’t it , my man? We can send you Stevenson. I follow him on his Facebook (which is mainly French) and you would not believe how stupid Chicken is. Not a nice person. :(

  6. this was domestic affair. Bivol, Betterbiev, KOvalev, Gvozdyk. Any of those fighters would be great challenge for those two probably too much. I think Bivol could close the show in 6. Those are the figters on fire looking great.Chickenson wont fight any of those figthers and with Jack being with Floyd it might be the same.

  7. Well, it’s kind of an obvious observation, but the first six rounds really belonged to Chickenson and the last 6 to Badou. It doesn’t make me like Chickenson more though! :) The rounds Chicken won were generally boring, whereas the rounds Jack won were exciting.

    1. Badou Jerk lost, get over it. Adonis is the champ and the champ should never lose his belt unless he is entirely dominated. Your reasoning is that of a 2 year old.

  8. Contrary to the biased announincig pair Jack was taken to the cleaners in all rounds but two. Jack is much overrated. A younger superman would have taken him out within a couple of rounds. its about time that some new unbiased announcers were commentating.
    Neither of these two would stand up to the younger generation in this weight bracket. Age catches everone, except perhaps george!
