Adonis Stevenson hospitalises Jesus Gonzales with hadouken first round kayo

19 Feb

Denzil Stone – Atlantic City

An early nomination for knockout of the year will have been submitted on Saturday, February 18 as Adonis Stevenson knocked Jesus Gonzales unconscious after just one half of a completed round at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec in Canada. The devastating punch was by no means a fluke as the flush left cross was a shot that been executed in the build-up to the stoppage, as is evidenced by the footage below.

Gonzales was flat on his back, arms still in the air while Stevenson celebrated a devastating victory. The fallen fighter was then taken to a waiting ambulance where he was carted off to a local hospital where he received a precautionary check-up.

The fight followed an unsavoury build-up as Stevenson had accused Gonzales of making racially disparaging comments, however, with the thumping win, the Haiti-born Quebec-resident retains possession of the IBF Intercontinental super middleweight belt and occupies the number two spot in the IBF rankings having succeeded in their official eliminator.

Stevenson (17-1-0, 14ko) is building increasing momentum for a mandatory fight with the IBF’s current champion, the long-reigning Lucian Bute, an undefeated pugilist who has also made Canada his fighting home. A match-up between the two, therefore, would be momentous.
