Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson 29-1 (24) insists he will defeat Badou Jack 22-1-2 (13) by knockout when the two meet on May 19 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.

“I’m looking forward to winning this fight by knockout,” said Stevenson. “I’m from the Kronk Gym and we always look for the knockout.

“Jack is a good, technical boxer. He was a world champion and he has done very well. He’s tough and I won’t underestimate him. I’ll be prepared for anything he brings in the ring. I’m fighting him at home in Canada, so I’m looking to give the fans a good show.

The 40-year-old Stevenson has held the WBC title since defeating Chad Dawson by KO in June 2013. He has made eight successful defence since, but has only fought once a year since 2015.

“I’ve got power and I’ve got the best left hook in boxing,” continued Stevenson. “I’ve got 12 rounds and I just need to touch you once to end it. It’s not complicated. I don’t need three or four shots. I just need one shot and you’re not going to recover. I’m going to finish you.”

Swedish-born, Las Vegas-based Jack is a former WBC super middleweight and WBA light heavyweight champion. His lone loss was a first round boilover against the unheralded Derek Edwards in 2014. In January last year he was held to a majority draw by James DeGale.

“I’ve been asking for this fight for a long time and was willing to fight him anywhere, including his backyard,” said Jack, who holds wins over Anthony Dirrell, George Groves, Lucian Bute and Nathan Cleverly in world title fights.

“I know he’s good and very dangerous and that’s the reason I want to fight him. I’m all about the best fighting the best and come May 19th, I’m bringing the WBC belt back to Las Vegas.”
