Many regard Stevenson as one of the top boxing talents out of the US. Stevenson, a former world featherweight champion is undefeated in 16 professional fights. He has not lost a match since winning an Olympic Silver medal in Rio 2016. The 24-year-old will look to establish his name by defeating the current WBO champion.

Jamel Herring is a former US marine, despite being 11 years older than his opponent, Herring has been on a red hot run of form. His last opponent retired after getting knocked out by Herring.
