Andrzej Fonfara: Stevenson can be knocked out, he's not Superman like he thinks

New, 9 comments

Andrzej Fonfara isn't new to the underdog role, and says that Adonis Stevenson has been knocked out before, and can be again.

Andrzej Fonfara is the underdog for tomorrow night's light heavyweight championship main event on Showtime, where the Polish-born Chicagoan will enter a hostile environment in Montreal to face Adonis Stevenson for the WBC and Ring Magazine titles.

Fonfara quotes

"It's a motivation for me. I think so. I'm prepared for this fight. It's not my first time I'm the underdog. It's normal for me. I'm ready for this fight, and I want to show my boxing on Showtime this Saturday."

"Of course. I've got a good punch in both hands. He's gotten knocked out. This proves he can go down, too. He's not Superman like he thinks, you know? Because he's gone down and he lost the fight. He can lose the second time. I'm glad he's in the best shape of his life. This is good. Because I want to know I'm fighting Adonis Stevenson in the best shape of his life."

"Mentally, I'm well prepared. I'm focused on just him and my corner, not on the crowd."
