Price per head sportsbooks were very surprised when they saw Adonis Stevenson and Tony Bellew almost come to blows during a weigh-in for their WBC world light heavyweight title fight at the weekend in Quebec.
The fighters were dragged apart when their encounter almost spun out of control after Stevenson shoved his forehead into Bellew’s face, and pay per head services were glad to know that they were separated quickly, as things could have badly escalated.
The Liverpool boxer, who had irritated Stevenson when he brought up his criminal past, responded in the same way before members of both camps and security staff had to separate the fighters from coming to blows.
“He got into my face so I butted him,” Bellew told the Liverpool Echo. “He tried to put his face into me so I slammed my head into his nose.”
Price per head sportsbooks saw that southpaw Stevenson was a bit lighter that Bellew at 174.4lbs, who was on the light heavyweight limit of 12st 7lbs.
On Saturday night, Bellew, whose only loss in 22 fights was on points to Nathan Cleverly, will also have a height and reach advantage over his rival, and price per head sportsbooks would like to see how this could affect the outcome of the fight.
Price per head sportsbooks know that Stevenson also lost only one time when he was knocked out by Darnell Boone, a journeyman whose record of 43 fights has more losses than wins.
But the Haitian-born Canadian fighter, who’s nickname happens to be Superman, is 1/5 favourite with price per head sportsbooks and bookmakers all over the world, and has a very solid reputation for being a big-hitter after he knocked out Chad Dawson in the first round, winning the title in June.
