Badou Jack, Adonis Stevenson entertain in fighting to majority draw in Toronto

Badou Jack had an entertaining showing in Toronto against Adonis Stevenson, despite the bout resulting in a draw.

Badou Jack had the right strategy on Saturday to wear down light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson. Unfortunately for the former two-division titleholder, he started too late.

After giving away the first half of the fight in hopes that his 40-year-old opponent would tire, Jack mounted a furious rally that left Stevenson barely able to stand at the final bell. But Jack (22-1-3, 13 KOs) was once again forced to settle for a draw in a big fight as Stevenson (29-1-1, 24 KOs) made the ninth defense of his WBC and lineal 175-pound championship.

Two judges scored the fight, which headlined a split-site Showtime doubleheader from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, 114-114. The third judge had it 115-113 for Jack. CBS Sports also scored the fight even.

“I thought I definitely won the fight. Nobody is complaining and no judge had him winning,” Jack said. “I have no idea [why it was a draw]. It could be [the judges] are jealous of [promoter] Floyd [Mayweather]. I am one of Floyd’s top fighters. Maybe they don’t like Floyd. To be honest, I don’t know. I can’t do anything about it.”
