One of boxing’s youngest stars returns to the ring on Friday.
Shakur Stevenson looks to maintain his meteoric rise when he defends his WBC, WBO and Ring Magazine junior lightweight titles against Robson Conceicao.
In his last outing in April, Stevenson showed drastic improvements from his worst performance ever, beating Mexico’s first-time title challenger Oscar Valdez. Now, the rising contender will face to prove he has arrived amongst the top fighters in the world.
According to history, Conceicao lost the World Boxing Council championship twice in a row after defeating Valdez in 2021. Between this loss and an unanimous decision victory over Martinez, he has gone on to recover.

One of the champion’s last TKO wins came against Herring before that fight against Alberto Guevara. The first round knockout by Holmeside in 2019 seems to be the indicator that this fight could end at any minute due to fatigue or an effective strategy.
