World Boxing Council (WBC), The Ring Magazine and linear world light heavyweight champion, Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (21-1-0, 18 KOs), as well as his opponent for his first title defense on September 28, former International Boxing Federation (IBF) light heavyweight champion, Tavoris “Thunder” Cloud (24-1-0, 19 KOs), recently submitted to the WBC regulatory weigh in.
At his training camp in Traverse City, Michigan, Stevenson tipped the scales at 186 pounds, while Cloud weighed in at 188 pounds at his Florida training camp. Both fighters were below the 193-pound mark permitted by sanctioning body rules.
The next mandatory weigh in will be held seven days prior to their Sept. 28 fight at the Belle Centre in Montreal with the weight limit at 184 pounds.
Tickets are on sale at the Bell Centre, on www.evenko.ca, at GYM (514) 383-0666 or club Boxing Champion (514) 376-0980. Ticket prices range from $50 in the red up to $300 on the floor.
Stevenson vs. Cloud is a nice match-up, and a fight which has fallen a bit under the radar due to the upcoming Floyd Mayweather vs. Saul Alvarez bout, which has served to dominate the sport right now. But in the wake of that, this will be a solid fight to look forward to, with each man bringing something to the table to challenge his opponent.
