Stevenson is the longest-reigning current world champion in the sport (since 2013), but he doesn’t get the respect you’d expect a man with his resume would receive. There is a belief that Stevenson fled his arrangement with HBO to avoid facing a surging Sergey Kovalev.
The two men never met in the ring. Kovalev went on to lose to Andre Ward twice, and Eleider Alvarez stopped him in his last bout. Meanwhile, the 41-year-old Stevenson has done nothing but win–sans a majority draw in his previous fight with Badou Jack in May. Despite his victories, Stevenson is still on the hunt for respect. Perhaps he can get a taste of it with a memorable performance against Gvozdyk.
Chances are it won’t be an easy mission for Stevenson. The 31-year-old Gvozdyk is ten years younger. He’s also hungry and determined to remove the interim tag from his title reign. He last fought in March when he scored a unanimous-decision win over Mehdi Amar. Experience could be a factor as Stevenson has had nearly as many championship fights (10) as Gvozdyk has had total bouts (15).
Will this be the night Stevenson hits the wall and is forced to consider his future in the sport, or does he continue to show himself to be amongst the best at 175 pounds? We’ll find out on Saturday night in Quebec City.
