Duva Comments On Curtis Stevens-Main Events Split


Brooklyn bred Curtis Stevens, promoted by the NJ-based outfit since early 2013, has parted ways with Kathy Duva and company.

The 29-6 boxer put out word via social media that he’s looking at a new chapter in his boxing life, and that means, among other things, that he is looking to hook on with another promoter.

The 32 year is 4-3 in his last seven outings. In his last date, he met David Lemieux, and was stopped out by the Canadian in round three of their March clash, which ran on HBO. It was a candidate, the left hook thrown by Lemieux, for KO shot of the year. One figures the winner would have and will be one step closer to getting the winner of the upcoming Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez bout.

Wrote Steven (curtis_showtime_stevens) on Instagram Monday: “Looking forward to moving on with my career and making big things happen! Thank you Main events for everything, the next chapter will be the best. Any promoters interested in one of the hardest hitters in boxing get in touch!!! The get back is important.”

Kathy Duva validated the news, and acknowledged that her company and Stevens have split. “We love Curtis,” Duva told NYF. “We have always loved Curtis. And he and Main Events had a great run together,” she stated of a stint which included a bout against Golovkin, at the Madison Square Garden Theater. “We decided it was in both of our best interests to part ways at this time.”
