Adonis Stevenson kept rolling tonight on Friday Night Fights in Montreal, stopping Argentina's Noe Gonzalez in the second round, and while the stoppage was definitely premature, it didn't seem like anything other than the inevitable was being prevented. Gonzalez didn't really protest the stoppage much, and was hurt, but the hook was quick, and the Bell Centre crowd didn't voice much approval of referee Michael Griffin's decision.

Stevenson (18-1, 15 KO) put himself in line for a title shot with any of the major sanctioning bodies, as minor belts from the WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO all were on the line tonight. There wasn't a lot to take from this fight, other than Stevenson's already-known power being quite real.

Stevenson was asked about fighting Quebec's most popular fighter, current IBF super middleweight titlist Lucian Bute, but didn't commit to anything in particular, or make any big statements. Bute faces Carl Froch on May 26 in England.

Gonzalez falls to 28-2 (20 KO) with the loss.

In the co-feature, former Colombian Olympian Eleider Alvarez won a boring eight-round decision over Rayco Saunders, who was brought in to give the Quebec-based Alvarez rounds and did so. Scores were 80-72 across the board. Alvarez (8-0, 5 KO) showed power and speed early, but as the fight wore on, Alvarez played it safe and didn't wow anyone with the performance. Bad Left Hook also scored the fight 80-72.
