Curtis “Showtime” Stevens
On April 20th, Main Events will be staging a nationally televised card from the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, featuring a heavyweight contest between British prospect Tyson Fury and Steve Cunningham. Making his official Main Events debut on that undercard as the opener on NBC will be their newest signee, middleweight Curtis “Showtime” Stevens, who officially inked a promotional pact with the company on Monday.
In a press release sent out by Main Events, Stevens said, “Everybody on your team isn't always in your corner but now I'm signed to Main Events and I have a great team in my corner. I had two years off and now I'm back. Now I'm going to take over the middleweight division. All glory be to God.”
In his last outing, Stevens stopped Elvin Ayala in one round on January 19th on the NBC Sports Network. In a relatively thin middleweight division, he is an intriguing wild card, one who can punch and is known to American audiences. And if you've seen the difficulty the likes of Gennady Golovkin has had in getting guys to step up and face him, Stevens can be a valuable player on the chess board.
On that same press release, Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO, said, “Curtis has the potential to go all the way. He has power, skills and miles of personality. His stunning first round KO of Elvin Ayala on ‘NBC Fight Night’ in January made quite a statement and we listened. We are so pleased to make Curtis part of the Main Events family and look forward to having much success together.”
