It was long and it was bloody, but, for Adonis Stevenson, the new big storm on the boxing front, defeat was not an option in his fight against his once undefeated contender, Tavoris Cloud.

Months ago, both talented men matched up fairly equally, with zero defeats under Cloud's belt and many consecutive victories racked up by Stevenson. Plus, they both had enough youth, vim and vigor to make the boxing world their oyster.

And then they faced each other. 31 year old Cloud, a former world champion hailing from America, took on Adonis 'Superman' Stevenson, who, in his last bid to defend his world title, had knocked out his then opponent, Chad Dawson, also from the States, in just over a minute.

Haitian-born Canadian professional boxer, Adonis Stevenson

Canadian boxer Adonis Stevenson, is a jewel in the Haitian belt as he hails from the country's capital, Port-au-Prince. Born on the 22nd of September, 1977, the nearly 36 year old boxer has spent his career with the nickname of 'Superman', a moniker adopted because of his dominance in the super-middleweight category he began in. Though he now fights more often in the light-heavyweight category, Stevenson continues to make his name popular, holding a 33-5 record in amateur contests.

The current light heavyweight champion of WBC, Lineal and The Ring, Stevenson made the change to his new category in June of this year, when he took on the former champion of the titles, Chad Dawson. After missing the chance at a super middle-weight title, Stevenson faced off with Dawson and took him down very quickly in the first round with a left hook. Stevenson was awarded his eight consecutive victory, since his one and only defeat, by knockout, though Dawson made it off the mat before the referee's count to eight.
