Adonis Stevenson and Noe Gonzalez on track for April 20th clash

South America's World Boxing Council (WBC( Silver Super Middleweight Champion Noe "El Carbonero" Gonzalez (28-1, 20 KOs) weighed in at 180.78 lbs and his opponent, Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (17-1, 14 KOs) weighed in at 176.37 lbs at the WBC-mandated 30-day safety weigh-in for their April 20 fight.

The two will meet in the 12-round main event of a Groupe Yvon Michel/Sampson Boxing blockbuster night of boxing at the Bell Centre, Montreal, Quebec, that will also be televised live on ESPN Friday Night Fights.

The WBC No. 2-rated Gonzalez and IBF No. 2 ranked Stevenson will also be competing for Stevenson's IBF Inter-Continental, NABO and NABA titles.

The match-up has "potentially explosive" written all over it. Gonzalez has stopped his last 11 foes dating back to 2008 and Stevenson is coming off of a February 18 first-round knockout over Jesus Gonzales that is a strong candidate for knockout of the year.

"Noe knows how much this victory means to his career and he is ready for war," said Gonzalez promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing.
