    If we all had the same opinions about everything, this would be one boring life!

    cant see it, something about adonis rocket launcher left hand very explosive, but predictable, smaller and less tough.

    By the time they would have fought Beterbiev would have been a heavy favourite to clock Stevenson out. Obviously a puncher as big as Stevenson, you cant write off but the writing was on the wall for him, dropped and hurt by Fonfana, life and death with Jack, wobbled by Williams, hard night with Bika (as everyone does tbf). Old and inactive bad matchup for Stevenson at that point.

    Beterbiev wins six days a week and twice on Sundays. The moment he lands Adonis is hurt. Beterbiev isn’t Adonis usual defense where he could cruise. You are simply, objectively, wrong. Everyone here has told you that.

    You stated your belief and beliefs are harder to change than opinions. Opinions can be changed with new information. Reading what you’ve read you might want to open yourself to the idea that you sold Beterbiev short.

    Beterbiev isn't getting nailed by a 1 trick pony. He's way too crafty for that. Some people have such a hard time seeing good defense from pressure fighters. Its appalling how anyone can think Stevenson could land the left at will.

    Not in a million years.

    If Stevenson fought Beterbiev instead of Gvozdyk, he would be in a permenant vegetative state or probably never woke from his coma.

    I just see Beterbiev walking into left hands over and over.

    I'm going to be perfectly honest, I really don't know what the rest of you see in Beterbiev.

    Could you be overrating Stevenson a bit? Stevenson could box a bit and he had TNT in his left hand but he lacked variety in his offense and he was somewhat hittable (even more so than Beterbiev to be honest).

    Adonis was a one handed fighter which is simply not enough for someone of Beterbiev's pedigree.

    Beterbiev probably would've beaten the guy that Stevenson was scared to death of, which says it all.

    I have a strong feeling that a derp should have been added at the beginning and end of the OP. Like parentheses.

    He beat The Nail into almost submission stoppage, who coincidentally did the same (The Nail) did the same thing to Stevenson. So he must not be too bad.

    It's not true at all, he has a much deeper competiton and a lot better opponents than Bertebijew:
    Dawson was the lineal champion and daddy of Hopkins, Belew became Cruiserweight WBC title-holder, Bika was Super-Middleweight world champion, Fonfara was top 10 as well. Froch avoided a mandatory defence against him. In fact he had superior challengers than Kowalev.

    Not a chance. Stevenson gets knocked out early. Not even a good warm up for Beterbiev/

    Quite possibly, he is an all-time great puncher however when you look at Stevensons career and saw him getting dropped by men like Fonfara & Boone it is more than feasible to suggest that Beterbiev could take his head off too. I doubt Stevenson would even have the balls to fight AB anyway, he wouldn't even face Alvarez or Kovalev & only really fought Gvozdyk cos he had run out of SMWs & B & C levellers..
