Adonis Stevenson's father 'died from fighting'

Long before his birth, RING/WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis "Superman" Stevenson said that his father dreamed that he would be a fighter, even though he died doing just that while his son was still in his mother's womb.

"I didn't know my father. When my mother was pregnant, my father died. So I didn't know my father. It wasn't easy," said Stevenson, 36, in an HBO video that can be viewed by clicking here.

"My father was in a karate tournament. He got a punch in the heart. Close to the heart. One or two weeks after that, he died from it. He died from fighting. And now, I'm a fighter. That was the dream of my father. You know, in boxing, anything can happen."
