Adonis Stevenson – Boxer: The powerfully built Hatian (5’11” 72″) is a deadly bomber with massive power and excellent dexterity. Along with huge ammunition, the southpaw can box effectively from the outside with a stiff jab that he fires from the hip. Blessed with natural athleticism, Stevenson, 36, moves his head fluidly and launches combination from unusual angles. Occasionally this bomber leaves himself vulnerable with low hand positioning and owns a good but not great chin. Best wins are a blowout over a shot Chad Dawson (KO1) and beatdown of crude but hard-punching Tavaoris Cloud (KO7). Stevenson vs Fonfara Betting Odds Over/Under is at 7.5 Rounds with the Over at -250 (Bet $2500 to win $1000)
Andrzej Fonfara – Boxer: The tall (6’2″ 77″) Polish fighter with a following out of Chicago is a cruiser-weight sized, light-heavyweight, with good power in both mitts. Fonfara, 26, comes to fight with a big heart and goes to the body well for a tall fighter. For a world-class fighter Fonfara eats to much leather and does not move his head effectively. Has only average athleticism and his foot speed is ordinary. Fonfara’s best wins are over a past his prime 44-year old Glen Johnson (UD10) and 34-year old, light-punching slickster, Gabriel Campillo (KO9).
Expert Boxing Picks Predictions: Fonfara has only gone 10 rounds once but the tough Polish kid with a strange name will be able to handle Stevenson’s early power. Stevenson has been know to let his focus wane outside the ropes and there is already an after party planned for his “win. Adonis might be overlooking Fonfara and at this level of the game that difference can be huge. Take the + money on the Over 7.5 Rounds prop and a flier on Fonfara at +1200 moneyline.
