Manny Montreal’s ‘Shootout’ Gallery

This past Friday night in Quebec City it was another Premier Boxing Champions card, with Groupe Yvon Michel presenting a night of fights called “Shootout” for Spike TV. And indeed the title was apt as Adonis Stevenson and Thomas Williams Jr. gave boxing fans a real, ‘shoot ’em up’ kind of battle, a fast-paced brawl that saw both men absorb heavy shots before the final blow was struck by “Superman” in round four.

It was an exciting finale to an otherwise routine night that saw some of GYM’s best fighters showcase their talent. Stevenson shows no signs of slowing down despite the fact he will be 39 next month; his strength, reflexes, power and aggression all look to be as potent as ever. And his destructive performance left some boxing fans hoping that, instead of the Andre Ward vs Sergey Kovalev showdown set for November, the powers that be could finally put together a Kovalev vs Adonis clash.

But welterweight prospect Custio Clayton, heavyweight Oscar Rivas, and top light heavyweight contender Eleider Alvarez also got the attention of Manny and his trusty camera as they were both ringside for all the action. Check out his gallery of exclusive photos and visit The Fight City facebook page for more great shots!
