"Superman" Adonis Stevenson (26-1) continued his winning streak as he successfully defended his light heavyweight title against Tommy Karpency (25-4-1) with a 3rd round TKO victory. Attempting to be kryptonite to "Superman," Karpency was out-classed by the stronger and quicker Stevenson. In the first round, Stevenson began his onslaught with a big left that buckled Karpency's legs. A straight left hand at the end of round 2 knocked Karpency to his knees. With a boisterous partisan crowd behind him, Stevenson finished Karpency off with a devastating TKO at 21 seconds of round 3.
A jubilant Stevenson chanted "Oh Canada!!" before calling out champ Sergei Kovalev. "C'mon Kovalev - it's time to fight for the unified title."
In the co-feature, welterweight Errol Spence Jr. (17-0) defeated Chris Van Heerden (23-1-1) with a TKO victory in the 8th around. Spence Jr. was too fast and skilled for the overmatched Van Heerden.
