Adonis Stevenson vs. Tommy Karpency set for 9/11 in Toronto

WBC light heavyweight champion and lineal light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson will be returning to the ring on September 11th on Premier Boxing Champions against Tommy Karpency, a tough, game spoiler who is somewhat surprising of a choice to some. The light heavyweight division is truly barren of depth as even the most hardcore of fans start to stumble when thinking of fighters in the division after naming five fighters, for this reason Karpency will get his shot.
Karpency is best known for his upset split decision win over Chad Dawson last year, since then he earned a victory in May in a stay busy fight against a outclassed foe. Karpency is currently ranked number 9 by the WBC.
Stevenson would be defending the WBC light heavyweight title for the sixth time after knocking out Chad Dawson in the first round of their bout two years ago. As with all of Stevenson’s title defenses, the bout will take place in Canada, this time in Toronto at a yet to be announced venue.
