HBO boxing will return to Canada when Adonis Stevenson faces Andrzej Fonfara this Saturday, May 24th in Montreal. Read a breakdown of Stevenson vs Fonfara and see all the betting odds, along with the prop bets on offer for this fight...

This is an interesting matchup of body types, where you have a tall, lanky fighter having a reach advantage over the shorter, stockier opponent. In most instances the fighter with a reach advantage is the favorite, but this is not the case because although Fonfara has the 5 inch reach advantage, he finds himself a large underdog to Adonis Stevenson.
Part of the reason that Adonis Stevenson is such a large favorite is it is still unclear if Fonfara can stand up to the proven power of "Superman". Fonfara started his career at welterweight, and slowly worked his way up to light-heavyweight, and many think his light frame cannot absorb the punches if Stevenson lands flush.
Adonis Stevenson just recently faced an orthodox opponent with a similar height and reach advantage in Tony Bellew, and he was able to stalk Bellew until ending the fight in the 6th round. That is why most boxing fans are uninterested in this bout and instead want to see Adonis Stevenson matched up with the much more dangerous Sergey Kovalev.
