But can he take it?” Stevenson now 40 years of age has an 80 percent KO ration for his fights as a pro, and has won 14 of his past 16 fights by way of KO

“I can go 12 rounds. I can box. It’s not a problem for me. But the first thing is the knockout. And that’s what I’m looking for, for the knockout.”
Stevenson is a favorite over Jack in the 175lbs fight which will air on Showtime Boxing.
