The second fight on May 19th will be Adonis Stevenson (29-1, 24 KO’s0 defending his WBC Light Heavyweight title against Badou Jack (22-1-2, 13 KO’s).  The two fights will be on the same ShowTime broadcast but at different venues.  This will be Stevenson’s biggest test since the first time he fought Andrzej Fonfara back in May of 2014.  Stevenson hasn’t been in a big fight since, and it seems like he’s been avoiding dangerous opponents.  Badou Jack on the other hand has fought everyone thrown at him including Anthony Dirrel, Lucian Bute, George Groves, and James DeGale, defeating all but DeGale. He fought DeGale to a draw on paper, but in my eyes and the eyes of many, he actually defeated DeGale.  Venues will soon be announced for the two events.
