Shakur Stevenson is attempting to add another championship to his résumé live this Thursday. The two-weight titleholder returns to the ring at lightweight against Edwin De Los Santos for the vacant WBC world title. After months of trying — and failing — to find an opponent for his next appearance, Stevenson got paired up with De Los Santos, who he credited for wanting to fight him.
“Edwin De Los Santos is a good fighter and he’s going to come to fight,” said Stevenson via press release. “I give him credit for actually taking this fight when so many other so-called ‘fighters’ ran from it. I’m the biggest boogeyman in boxing, and on November 16, the world will see why when I put on another great performance for the fans. Come out to T-Mobile Arena or tune in to ESPN and watch me become a three-division world champion.”
Recently, Stevenson stopped Shuichiro Yoshino via sixth-round TKO this past April.
Following a split decision loss to William Foster III, De Los Santos is fresh off his third consecutive win, a decision against Joseph Adorno in July. That has earned ‘La Granada’ his first championship opportunity.
“I want to thank Top Rank, the WBC, ESPN and my promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz, for this opportunity to put on a great fight and win my first world championship. I am a proud Dominican warrior who fights for my people! Shakira, I’m going to kick your ass.”
