Adonis Stevenson stops Darnell Boone in 6th round

Adonis Stevenson avenged his only loss, knocking out Darnell

Boone with a pair of lefts in the sixth round Friday night at the

Bell Centre.

Stevenson (20-1), from nearby Longueuil, lost to Boone (20-20-3)

on a second-round TKO in 2010.

The left-hander, fighting at 173 pounds, forced Boone to take a

knee with a right shot to the body early in the sixth, then stunned

him coming out of a corner with a left uppercut and followed with a

straight left that sent the American to the canvas.

In the co-feature, Eleider Alvarez (12-0) unified two minor

belts with a third-round knockout of Nicholson Poulard (19-3) in a

match of world-ranked Montreal light heavyweights. Alvarez added

Poulard’s NABA title to his own NABO belt.
