Adonis Stevenson vs Don George Set For October 12

Adonis Stevenson vs Don George has been rescheduled for October 12 in Montreal.

An IBF super middleweight title eliminator between Adonis Stevenson and Don George is officially set for October 12 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, meaning that the fight will not be going head-to-head(-to-head) with two top-flight U.S. cards on October 13.

Wealth TV has the fight in the States, and whatever you may or may not think about their involvement in boxing right now, they're making some moves on a good number of fights, and with this one, they've actually signed up for something good instead of Anthony Mundine or Tyson Fury vs Vinny Maddalone.

Stevenson (18-1, 15 KO) and George (23-2-1, 20 KO) were set to meet on August 17, but that fell through when Stevenson suffered an injury in training. George instead fought and easily defeated Dionisio Miranda that night, and now they've swung back around for a make-up date, with the winner in line for a shot at the IBF belt next year.

Currently, the title is held by Carl Froch, who won it from Lucian Bute in May. But there's a whole plan laid out around the title right now, too. Both of those two will be fighting tune-up bouts in November, with Froch facing Yusaf Mack and Bute taking on Denis Grachev. If they both win, a rematch between Froch and Bute is scheduled for next spring in Montreal.

That means that the winner of Stevenson vs George, at best, is looking at a summer 2013 title shot. And if Bute were to beat Froch, there would undoubtedly be serious demand for a rubber match between the two.
