This is why the referee is there, to ensure the safety of an injured boxer," declared Griffin, after having declared the KO.

At the end of this combat, Adonis declared "I wanted to use my speed and put pressure. I wanted to mix the body and head. It worked ! Emanuel Steward, my coach told me before die, that if I faced Chad Dawson or Tavoris Cloud, I would win by KO. For me it is a dream come true ! Now I want to unify the titles with Bernard Hopkins (IBF champion heavyweight) or face Andre Ward (World Champion Classic Super Six)."

Emanuel Steward was right. Adonis Stevenson is not only become a champion, he is now a star in the world of boxing.
