Stevenson stops Cloud after seven, retains belt

Adonis Stevenson registered a lopsided seventh round TKO over Tavoris Cloud to retain the WBC light heavyweight belt.

Stevenson (22-1) cruised from the opening bell, picking apart Cloud (24-2) and dominating each round.

The fight was eventually stopped following the seventh round after a cut over Cloud's right eye became too much for the former IBF titlist to continue.
