  • Shakur Stevenson holds a record of 20 wins, with 10 TKO/KOs and no losses.
  • Stevenson is a former Olympic silver medalist.
  • Stevenson's next opponent is Edwin De Los Santos for the vacant WBC Lightweight world title.

Shakur Stevenson is fresh off his sixth-round TKO victory over Shuichiro Yoshino in the main event of the boxing card inside Prudential Center in April 2023. It was Stevenson’s 20th career victory in the professional ranks after winning the silver medal in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Because of this unbeaten and impressive run, the 25-year-old is slowly becoming a household name in boxing odds.

That win over Yoshino was Stevenson’s maiden victory in the lightweight division. But is that enough to earn him a title shot next? Or does he need to fight the other contenders and win in a big way to rightfully challenge the big names in the stacked weight class?
