  Stevenson Floors Marshmallow Legs
Pryor Jr. Four Times To Win By TKO

By Daniel Cloutier

Adonis Stevenson, a southpaw from Montréal, should be in the Top 5 of the IBF, WBA and WBO ratings by the beginning of next year. Saturday evening in the ring of the Bell Center Theater, Stevenson (16-1-0) won the most important fight of his career, a NABA, NABO and IBF International championships fight. He sent the American Aaron Pryor Jr. four times on the canvas, and won this fight by TKO in the 9th round.

Stevenson had problems with the Pryor’s long arms in the first minute of the bout, but he surprised his opponent in the second minute of the fight. He floored him with a power shot.

Pryor got up in smiling.

In the second round, Pryor did a pretty good job to keep Stevenson away, but in the third, Adonis put on pressure as he chased his opponent constantly, the result was he floored him for the second and third times of the fight.

Clearly, Stevenson knew that he was stronger physically than Pryor.

Stevenson hit Pryor very hard at the end of the 5th round, and the American staggered. Same situation at the end of the 8th round. Pryor had marshmallow legs in returning in his corner.

In the 9th, Stevenson floored Pryor for the fourth time of the evening, and at this point, Pryor’s trainers asked to the referee to stop the fight. Pryor was bleeding from the mouth and the nose after his fifth lost (16-5-0).

“I just got the most important win of my life, and watch me in 2012,” said Stevenson before leave the ring. “My dream is to fight Lucian Bute. I want to inflict him his first lost, and put my hands on his IBF belt. He never fought a strong puncher like me. Believe me, 2012 will be my year. Pryor beat the tough Mexican fighter Librado Andrade last May, and I just destroyed him. Don’t forget that Librado came so close to beat Bute in October 2008 here in Montréal.”
