Adonis Stevenson discusses win over Andrzej Fonfara

Adonis Stevenson talks about a hand injury, his body shots, and the crowd backing him in Montreal for his win over Andrzej Fonfara.

How do you feel, champ?

"I feel great. I feel good. I've kept my title, and the Ring Magazine (title), too. So I feel very good."

At times, you were fighting with your hands down, and he was following you. Was it that you didn't respect his power, or were you baiting him in?

"I hurt my left hand, so I kept my hands down a little bit, but I was hurt, so I changed my game plan. I was moving around and jabbing."

Even with a hurt hand, though, those body shots. Just devastating. What was it with him that you knew the body shot as opposed to the head shot was going to be effective?

"Yeah. Down, down, down, down. I kept working on the body shots, to catch him with the body shots."

Certainly the fans were with you this evening. How did that help you, especially in the later rounds?

"I love that! I'm a true warrior. I love that, man. I'm exciting. I give the fans what they want, exciting fights. Emanuel Steward always told me, if you're exciting, give the fans what they need. Exciting fights. It was an exciting fight."
