Shakur Stevenson vs Robson Conceicao – In tonight’s main event, Beltless Shakur Stevenson will square off against Robson Conceicao at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. The fight will be broadcast on ESPN.
At the weigh-in on Thursday, Stevenson, who had an undefeated record of 18-0 with 9 knockouts, came in at 131.6 pounds, which caused him to lose his WBC and WBO super featherweight belts.
The fact that Stevenson wanted to go up to 135 pounds after the fight has led many boxing fans to assume that he never meant to make weight in the first place. Some people believe that Stevenson wanted to make sure Conceicao didn’t boil down to meet the 130-pound limit so that he could take advantage of his size advantage and toughness.
This demonstrates how brilliant the Brazilian Conceicao is, since he was able to overcome the Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko while they were both competing in the amateur levels. In 2016, Conceicao was successful in bringing an Olympic gold medallist to justice.
Conceicao’s sole loss on his record as a professional boxer came in the form of a disputed decision against Oscar Valdez in September of last year. As did a great many other individuals, Conceicao came away from the battle feeling victorious.

If Stevenson loses tonight, it is extremely possible that he will have to fight Conceicao again, and this would postpone his step up to 135 pounds.
“You never know what kind of struggle is going to be the hardest. When asked who would be the hardest battle for him at 135, Shakur Stevenson responded by saying, “You may go there, and they’re talking about Tank and Devin being the toughest fight because that’s who I would look at it.” Shakur Stevenson was speaking on the DAZN Boxing Show.
“Now that I’m growing older, I’m also becoming wiser. What if I get there and find out that they aren’t that difficult, and then I face Lomachenko, and he gives me everything he’ll break free in a battle? When it comes to fighting, you will never know who your fiercest opponent is until you actually face them.
“Being able to compete in the Olympic Games and come away with a gold medal is one of the most difficult things a person can do in their lifetime. You have no choice but to respect him. I’m not looking beyond him.
“I am aware that he is an excellent fighter, and he has a number of outstanding abilities. It seems like we’ll be going head to head, but I’m certain I can win.
“I believe that a pay-per-view bout between Lomachenko and I should take place. That is a massive, massive struggle; in particular, given that I’m going to show there and sell it. However, we cannot ignore Conceicao’s importance. I’m going to do all in my power to win that battle.
“I’m a superstar. I am so certain that people all around the globe are falling in love with me that I will eventually become a major sensation in the sport of boxing. I’m simply going to sit tight and see how things play out on their own.
