Gvozdyk: Stevenson is great fighter but it's my time

"I respect Adonis Stevenson as a fighter, he's a great champion. But I am ready to accept this challenge […] I have one of the greatest trainers in the history of boxing so I'm very confident. We have a good strategy. We had an excellent training camp and I'm ready. Adonis is a great fighter. He's a dangerous southpaw and this is a real step-up for me but it's my time," Boxing News 24 quoted Gvozdyk as saying.
