The WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18 KOs) will defend his title for the first time against former champion Tavoris Cloud (24-1, 19 KOs) on September 28 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The Haitian born Canadian resident Stevenson won the WBC 175-pound title when he defeated Chad Dawson by KO in the very first round and he wants to unify the titles but first he must take on the former IBF champion Tavoris Cloud.
Cloud is from Tallahassee, Florida and is looking to bounce back after suffering his first professional loss last March to aging legend Bernard Hopkins. He is best known for his aggressive style, and durable chin which will help him in this fight.
If Stevenson wins tonight he wants to face the name fighters such as Bernard Hopkins, Carl Froch, and Andre Ward and for Cloud he needs this win to make him a player in the 175 pound division again.
The Adonis Stevenson vs. Tavoris Cloud WBC light heavyweight championship fight will air live on HBO Sept. 28 at 10:15/7:15 PM ET/PT.
