Shakur Stevenson vs. Robson Conceição goes down on Friday night on ESPN. In this fight the undefeated Stevenson will be staking his WBC, WBO, and The Ring super-featherweight titles against the former Olympic gold medallist from Brazil.
Stevenson comes into this fight as a huge betting favourite. Last time out he handed Oscar Valdez the first loss of his career, taking a unanimous decision to claim the WBC and The Ring titles. The 25-year-old is considered the consensus best super-featherweight on the planet.
The only loss on Conceição’s record was a decision defeat to Valdez in 2021, for the WBC title Stevenson would later win. He was the first ever Brazilian boxer to win a gold medal at the Olympics, which he did on home soil at the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro.
