Experience

At 40 years of age Adonis Stevenson has fought 30 times with just one shock loss coming against American journeyman Darnell Boone in 2010, one the Canadian would later avenge. Stevenson has competed in nine world title fights at light-heavyweight, having spent just under a decade at super-middleweight. Badou Jack has 25 fights on his record with only two losses and one draw. Jack made four defences of the WBC super-middleweight title he won against Anthony Dirrell in April 2015 before moving up to 175lbs where he would beat Nathan Cleverly for the WBA ‘regular’ light-heavyweight title. Jack only having one previous fight at light-heavyweight and Stevenson having eight more than his opponent at the weight the Canadian champion just comes out on top in terms of experience.
