  Adonis Stevenson became an internet and boxing sensation in 75 seconds with a devastating KO of Chad Dawson. Now the Light Heavyweight champ sits down with BSO’s Kel Dansby to discuss his upcoming fight against Tavoris Cloud. Kel: So Adonis, what was your mindset heading into your last fight with Chad Dawson? Adonis: I was focused for the fight. I was focused to win the title for Kronk gym and my family. Kel: What did you see early in that fight that made you go for such an early knockout? Adonis: I saw a mistake. He came after me aggressive and tried to jab me and put pressure on me. I caught the hands, the right hand, down and I hit him with a good punch. Kel: How does your mentality change now that you have the belt; opposed to being the one chasing after the champ? Adonis: It’s just more training and more focus. Kel: Next up you have Tavoris Cloud. Is their any similarities between him and Chad Dawson? Is there anything that you will change heading into this fight? Adonis: Tavoris Cloud is a power puncher and a good boxer that will put more pressure. I’m going to do the same thing (I did) with Chad, I’m going to knock him out. Kel: Do you feel that this Cloud fight will be the fight to take your career to the next level? Adonis: Yeah of course. I think Cloud is a good name in the sport and a good boxer. That’s why I picked Cloud; he’s a former champion and still has a big name in the sport. Kel: Against Cloud would you be disappointed if you don’t win by knockout? Adonis: I’m going for the knockout. I don’t have to look for the knockout because he will come to me, that’s his style. Sooner or later he will come to me and I will knock him out. Kel: How important is it to have your fights in Canada? Adonis: I love Canada and I love my fans. They give me more motivation to fight. When you have your crowd and you have your fans it’s very good. Kel: Is there anything you’d like to tell your fans heading into this fight? Adonis: I’d like to thank my fans and tell them to watch the fight on HBO. I want to thank HBO, KronkGym, and my trainers. I’d also like all of my fans to follow me on Twitter, @AdonisSuperman. Adonis Stevenson will be defending his WBC Light Heavyweight title against former champion Tavoris Cloud September 28th on HBO. Follow @HBOboxing and @KelDansby for fight night Twitter coverage.

The Week’s Boxing Schedule, Featuring Adonis Stevenson, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. And Humberto Soto

It might not be the best timing, but Tyson Fury uppercutting himself in the face will never not be funny. Fury was meant to fight this week but his opponent, David Haye, got cut. That would have been a nice fight, but I suspect Fury would have had no need to punch himself with Haye there to do it for him. There are still a fair few good fights on, though, including Adonis Stevenson...
