Adonis « Superman » Stevenson is born with God given power.

 

The anvil-fisted puncher laced the gloves for the first time when he entered karate master Tiger Paul’s kickboxing gym, in Montreal. Paul became Adonis spiritual father and a mentor.

In his first amateur bout, he rocked a Canadian championship silver medalist. In less than five fights, he had also won the Quebec Golden Gloves.

Dominant but inexperienced, he still gave Canadian star Jean Pascal two grueling wars in 2003, before winning the Canadian championship in 2005 and 2006.

In the amateurs, his best success was to win the silver medal at the Commonwealth games, in 2006. After this success, he made his pro debut with Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM).

After a setback in the United States while not under contract with GYM, Adonis Stevenson came back with the Montreal stable in 2011.

But it is really only when ‘‘Superman’’ decided to train with legendary trainer Emanuel Steward that his career skyrocked.

In 2013, after avenging his only pro loss, he made a smashing debut in the major leagues with a homerun K.-O. in only 76 seconds over The Ring and WBC light-heavyweight world champion, Chad Dawson. A star was born!

IBF ex-champion Tavoris Cloud and mandatory challenger Tony Bellew also both tasted the medicine of the new champion.

To cap this fabulous 2013 year, Adonis won the honors of ‘‘boxer of the year’’ and ‘‘K.-O. of the year’’ of the prestigious The Ring magazine. The WBC also named him ‘‘revelation of the year’’.

In 2014, Stevenson improved to 4-0 in championship bouts to retain his title.
The 175-pound champion won a 12-round unanimous decision over Andrzej Fonfara in Montreal in May, followed by a fifth-round KO of Dmitry Sukhotsky in Quebec City in December.

Stevenson made his Premier Boxing Champions debut in Quebec City on April 4, 2015, fighting Sakio Bika in a bout that aired live on CBS.

Stevenson put Bika on the canvas in the sixth and ninth rounds with big left hands, and controlled most of the 12-round bout to win by unanimous decision.

According to CompuBox statistics, Stevenson landed 229 of 635 punches for a 56 percent connect rate, while Bika landed 113 of 390 punches (34 percent).

September 11, 2015, in Toronto, Superman stormed Canada’s biggest city and stopped American southpaw Tommy Karpency in the third round.

July 29 in Quebec City, Stevenson scored a violent fourth round KO over the American power puncher Thomas Williams Jr. in a spectacular brawl, live on Spike TV.

Even at the age of 38, Stevenson is still pursuing his goal of becoming the first undisputed 175-pound world champion since Roy Jones Jr. in 1999.
