Curtis Stevens Says He Doesn’t Work Overtime, Looks To KO Saul Roman


UNCASVILLE, CT – The last time middleweight Curtis “Showtime” Stevens was in the ring, something happened that he didn’t plan on. The hard-punching boxer from Brooklyn, NY was extended for the full 8-round limit. Although he won a unanimous decision that day, the result didn’t sit well with the hot prospect. If it was up to Stevens, 24-3, 17 KOs, every single one of his fights would end in a KO.

“I don’t get paid overtime,” Stevens recently said, summing up his boxing philosophy.

The exciting New Yorker gets a chance to register another knockout when appears in the 10-round main event on August 3rd at the Mohegan Sun, in Uncasville, CT. Stevens faces veteran Saul Roman, 37-9, 31 KOs, in the nationally televised contest.

The fight is the highlight bout of a triple header card on the next edition of Fight Night. The other televised bouts feature heavyweight Tomasz Adamek, 48-2, 29 KOs, and Tony Grano, 20-3-1, 16 KOs, in a 10-round heavyweight contest, and Eddie Chambers, 36-3, 18 KOs, in his first cruiserweight fight against Thabiso Mchunu,13-0, 10 KOs, also scheduled for 10 rounds.

Prior to his last bout, Stevens blasted out his previous two opponents in a single round each. However, against Roman he will find a battle-tested professional who figures to seriously test his punching power. The Mexican has been in with the best and sees Stevens as the final hurdle to the world title shot that has eluded him during his 13-year career.

With Stevens on the brink of big things in the middleweight division, he will certainly bring his “A” game into the ring against Roman. And for Stevens that means only one thing – a knockout. However if Stevens wants to add another flashy KO to his record, he’s going to have to work for it against Roman.

But that’s exactly what Stevens has done throughout his boxing career. His penchant for punching surfaced early in his amateur days, when he was first labeled as a dangerous knockout artist. This reputation has stuck in the professional ranks, and Stevens would like nothing more than to make another statement in the nationally televised main event.

With both fighters in hot pursuit of victory, their fight on August 3rd should prove to be an explosive encounter.
