Stevenson-Karp

 

TORONTO, September 11, 2015 — It’s been 30 years since a world championship title fight was fought in Toronto – and the exuberant crowd at Ricoh Coliseum welcomed boxing back with hard-hitting action on the main televised card of the Premier Boxing Champions on Spike.

“Superman” Adonis Stevenson (26-1), the light heavyweight world champion put his coveted belt on the line in front of his fellow Canadian countrymen against the gritty American challenger Tommy Karpency (25-4-1). Attempting to be kryptonite to “Superman,” Karpency was out-classed by the stronger and quicker Stevenson. In the first round, Stevenson began his onslaught with a big left that buckled Karpency’s legs. A straight left hand at the end of round 2 knocked Karpency to his knees. With a boisterous partisan crowd behind him, Stevenson finished Karpency off with a devastating TKO at 21 seconds of round 3. (continue reading…)

CHICAGO, November 16, 2012 – Some say that boxing is dead and mixed martial arts is its successor.  Judging from tonight’s packed UIC Pavilion, that’s clearly not the case. Yet, in an ironic twist, the main event was abruptly won with an inadvertent martial arts move:  A simple Judo-like throw. 

Led into the boxing ring by two men bearing the Polish and American flags to the strains of Polish rap music and 4,224 cheering fans, this was Polish-American Andrzej Fonfara’s homecoming party. (continue reading…)
