BADOU JACK is waiting for a rematch after he drew with Adonis Stevenson. Jack admits that the WBC light-heavyweight champion is biggest hitter he’s ever faced but maintains that Stevenson did not hurt him.

“Everyone has got different styles so it’s kind of hard to compare. In terms of biggest puncher – it would be Adonis Stevenson,” he said. “He didn’t hurt me at all apart from one body shot which was a little low. He caught me with a good shot.

“His left hand was nothing crazy but he’s got two hands. People only ever talk about his left but he had a pretty good right hand too. I took his power no problem but he’s a strong guy.”
