Tony Bellew failed in his bid to become WBC light-heavyweight champions after being stopped in the sixth round by Adonis Stevenson in Quebec City.

Stevenson caught had the Brit rocking with a fierce left hook, before referee Michael Griffin stepped in to stop the bout as Bellew took heavy punishment in the corner.

Bellew has now lost twice in his professional career, while Stevenson is already looking to his next fight - which he wants in Quebec City.

"The fans of Quebec City want Carl Froch or Bernard Hopkins," said Stevenson following his victory. "Kovalev is a good fighter too.

"I don't have a problem with Kovalev, right now but the fans of Quebec City want Carl Froch and Bernard Hopkins. That's what the fans want."
