Stevenson to defend against Cloud September 28

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson (21-1, 18 KOs) will defend his belt against former IBF champion Tavoris Cloud (24-1, 19 KOs) on September 28 in Montreal. Contracts have been signed and fight was confirmed by promoter Yvon Michel. Former champion Jean Pascal could fight on the undercard. HBO will televise. There was talk of a split-site doubleheader on that date with WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward on the other end, but Ward’s fight is in limbo after HBO rejected former champ Dimitri Sartison as an opponent.
