In a highly anticipated bout set for November 16 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Shakur Stevenson is going to challenge Dominican knockout artist Edwin De Los Santos for the vacant WBC lightweight title. Stevenson is aiming to become a three-division-champion. De Los Santos, a 24-year-old pressure fighter, known for his knockout power, will likely seek an early finish.

But Stevenson’s defensive prowess positions him to use De Los Santos’s aggression to his advantage by making him miss and expertly counterattacking. Recently, Stevenson said, “Edwin De Los Santos is a good fighter and he’s going to come to fight. 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.
