Adonis “Superman” Stevenson: My dream is to unify all the titles

To prepare for ferocious Cameroon native Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika and their World Boxing Council (WBC)/The Ring light heavyweight world title bout, airing April 4 live on CBS from the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, defending and reigning champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson came back to Montreal to train at his new boxing gym in the northern part of the city.    

“My first trainer, Tiger Paul, choose the place,” Stevenson explained Tuesday before training for the media. “It is near highways and all of the major roads. It will also allow me to spend more time with my kids and family. I want to help the kids in the gym, too.”

Light heavyweight world champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (25-1, 21 KOs) returns to the ring Saturday, April 4 at Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City to defend his title against former super middleweight world champion Sakio “The Scorpion” Bika (32-6-3, 21 KOs). The April 4 event marks the debut of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on CBS (3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT).

“I am excited to be the headliner for first PBC event on CBS,” Stevenson said. “I know Bika will stop at nothing, so the fight will be spectacular and extremely offensive-minded. I predict that Bika will lose by knockout for the first time in his career.”

“After all these years fighting at 168 pounds, it was becoming increasingly difficult to make weight and that was a major factor in my defeats,” Bika said. “I see no problem making the jump to light heavyweight to face Stevenson and I do not feel I’ll be at a disadvantage because the champion made this transition successfully himself less than two years ago against Chad Dawson. I promise you that I will be the new champion on April 4.”
