Yesterday we along with others reported that a potential bout between Adonis Stevenson and Badou Jack had taken a turn for the worse. After spending quite a bit of time yesterday they’ve worked out the kinks to get a deal together.
Stevenson took some heat yesterday on social media after several outlets reported it was likely he would be facing Eleider Alvarez instead of Jack. Alvarez would’ve arguably been the right thing to do but Jack was the fight fans wanted to see.
Stevenson vs Jack is NOW set to take place on May 19th in Canada. Alvarez is expected to appear on the undercard as well after pulling out of his scheduled purse bid with Oleksandr Gvozdyk last week.
