Shakur Stevenson vs. Edwin De Los Santos preview
Stevenson (20-10, 10 KOs) is widely regarded as one of boxing’s preeminent talents based on his mastery of the fundamentals, his speed and his general ring. But his star power so far has been limited due to his low finish rate and relatively few opponents.
The 2016 Olympic silver medalist has finished just two of his last six opponents but has made a concerted effort to be more aggressive offensively and provide a more fan-friendly style. This was evident in his WBO featherweight title defense last year against Oscar Valdez in which Stevenson’s size drowned out Valdez’s edge in power punches. Stevenson appeared close to the finish a couple of times but settled for a unanimous decision in an entertaining battle.
But Stevenson lost his titles when he missed weight to defend his WBO and WBC super featherweight titles against Robson Conceicao last September. He scored another decision victory before moving up to lightweight. In April, Stevenson made his lightweight debut with a sixth-round stoppage of previously unbeaten Shuichiro Yoshino, setting the stage for Thursday night’s opportunity.
Although De Los Santos (16-1, 14 KOs) is only ranked No. 6 by the WBC, he was awarded the title fight because the competitors ahead of him were either ranked before or rejected the fight with Stevenson.
The 24-year-old Dominican Republic is a southerner known for its power and stability. His last fight resulted in a unanimous decision over Joseph Adorno in July. His only loss came by split decision to William Foster III last July. See who’s back at SportsLine.
