Stevenson a huge favorite tonight in Montreal

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (23-1, 20 KOs), of Montreal, will make his network debut when he defends his title for a third time when he meets Andrzej “The Polish Prince” Fonfara (25-2-0, 15 KOs), of Chicago by way of Warsaw, Poland. Stevenson has won his last 10 fights by knockout. Fonfara has won 15 in a row, 12 inside the distance, and has never been defeated as a light heavyweight.

Stevenson enters the bout as a prohibitive favorite at -1700, while Fonfara backers can get +1100. Stevenson is also -900 to win by KO. The over/under is 7.5 rounds with under at -255 and over +215.

In an interesting co-featured fight, power-punching Montreal middleweight David Lemieux (31-2, 29 KOs) meets battle-tested Fernando Guerrero (26-2, 19 KOs) of Salisbury, Md., in a 12-rounder for the vacant NABF 160-pound crown.

Lemieux, who has been in somewhat soft in his last six fights, is at -500 against former world title challenger Guerrero, who could be a live dog at +400.
