Adonis Stevenson, the talented light heavyweight who chooses to have a light schedule, and has gloved up seven times in four years, will step in the ring again, on Dec. 1st.

The WBC boss, Mauricio Sulaiman, Tweeted out that the 29-1-1 WBC champ, based in Canada, will meet Oleksandr Gvozdyk (15-0) in December, in Montreal.

In his last outing, Stevenson fought to a draw with Badou Jack. He’s held the ‘BC belt since 2013.

Gvozdyk is a Ukraininan born hitter, age 31, who last gloved up in March. He scored a decision win over Mehdi Amar, in NYC. Adonis would be, on paper, a step or more up from anything he’s seen since turning pro in 2014.

Gvodyk’s manager is Egis Klimas. He touched base with NYF, after being asked about this December 1 news.

“This is what we were told,” Klimas said. And his thoughts on the matter? “Not very happy dragging a date, but hoping it will happen.”
