STEVENSON MAKES STEP-ASIDE DEAL WITH MANDATORY CHALLENGER ALVAREZ

The WBC has received official communication from mandatory contender Eleider Alvarez advising that he entered into a step-aside agreement allowing WBC champion Adonis Stevenson to make a voluntary defense. Following is the letter received by the WBC which is self-explanatory:

Dear Mr President,

By this email, I wish to confirm that the WBC Silver Light heavyweight champion, #1 and mandatory contender to WBC champion Adonis Stevenson, has voluntarily agreed to step aside from his privilege, to give the opportunity to Adonis Stevenson of making a voluntary title defense in is up and coming fight.

It is understood both fighters, Stevenson and his opponent, are going to confirm, in writing, their commitment to defend the WBC light heavyweight title against Alvarez, in the very next fight, if they are the winner of this voluntarily title defense.

Thank you very much for your collaboration,

All yours,
Yvon

Stevenson will reportedly be facing Seanie Monaghan on April 29 at the newly renovated Nassau County Coliseum on Long Island.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 15 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
