AFTER a bout of see-saw excitement and guts aplenty, Adonis Stevenson clung on to his WBC light-heavyweight title after two of the judges scored his 12-rounder with Badou Jack a draw.

The decision, when one considers the current 10-point must system, was fair yet it was easy to have some sympathy for the challenger, whose periods of domination appeared more telling than those of 40-year-old Stevenson.

The champion made a strong start, though, boxing smartly before the tireless Jack turned things round at the halfway point and by the end Stevenson – in his ninth defence – was reeling under intense pressure.
