Avenge and Revenge

Stevens avenged the only defeat in his career (at the time) with a rematch against Primera in November of the same year.  Although fans and friends pushed for the knockout, he won after the eighth round, illustrating  “composure and patience” in what boxing promoter Lou DiBella said was “one of his best fights.”
