Adonis Stevenson Upset Over Focus on Criminal Past

WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson is upset with some of the press clippings in Canada, where several articles focused on his criminal past. Stevenson, 36, was in trouble with the law in 1990s. During that time he spent four years in prison for charges stemming from pimping and assault.

During the pre-fight build to Saturday's fight with Tony Bellew, one article in particular detailed Stevenson's days as a gang member. There was even an interview with a prostitute who was pimped by Stevenson and his crew.

The popular Canadian boxer felt there were certain people, behind the scenes, who were trying to place these items in the press to affect his concentration in the fight. Stevenson was very focused during the contest and knocked out Bellew in six rounds.
