Former two-division world champ Badou Jack has arrived in Toronto, Canada and says he is honoured to be able to dethrone WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson in his own country and also be part of the biggest fight in Canada for 30 years.

 

Speaking after arriving in Toronto, Jack, 21-1-3-(13), said: “To have my fight here in Toronto, and for it to be the biggest fight in the city in 30 years is amazing,” Jack said. “I will become the new WBC Light Heavyweight Champion in his own country, in his backyard.”

 

Jack is the former WBC super middleweight and WBA Light heavyweight king, the latter title he relinquished for the opportunity to challenge Stevenson.

 

Jack added: “It’s become more of a reality now that I’m here in Toronto. Now it’s just the countdown to fight night. My focus is making weight and becoming the new world champion. I’m younger, I’m stronger, I’m faster. I’m the better guy.”

 

The fight will be broadcast in the US on Showtime.
