Montreal, CAN - Adonis Stevenson retained the WBC light heavyweight title Saturday night at the Bell Centre when Tavoris Cloud failed to answer the bell for the eighth round after sustaining a cut over his right eye.
Stevenson (22-1) successfully defended the title he won in June with a first-round knockout of Chad Dawson.
Cloud (24-2), the former IBF champion, also was cut on the left eyelid in the opening round.
Stevenson, from Blainville, Quebec, is the only Canadian currently with a world title.
