Fight time 

Shakur Stevenson returns to action tonight to face Robson Conceicao in an ESPN main event from Newark, N.J., but the fight has admittedly lost some luster as of yesterday.

Stevenson missed weight on Friday, so the WBC and WBO junior lightweight titles are on the line for Conceicao only.

The main card is scheduled to start at 10/7PM ETPT, with ringwalks expected around 11:30/8:30PM ETPT.

All the same, we’ll be here, and our live coverage will start at 6 pm ET with highlights and results from the prelims, then continue at 10 pm ET with round-by-round for the main card fights from Wil Esco.

Both fighters here had standout amateur careers—Conceição in fact arguably the more so, winning a lightweight gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, as well as medalling at two world championships.

Shakur won silver at the same Olympics, losing a featherweight final against Robeisy Ramires.

It’s been a different story since both turned pro, though. The younger of the two by eight years, Stevenson moved quite rapidly up the ranks, fighting good international level opponents within 10 fights and winning his first world title (at featherweight) in just his 12th pro bout.

Shakur Stevenson Weight 

Shakur Stevenson has been stripped of his super-featherweight world titles after showing up 1.6lb over the 130lb limit for his defence against Robson Conceicao.

The Newark, New Jersey native was set for a world title homecoming at the Prudential Center in his hometown, but now will have to move on without his WBC and WBO belts.

He was given two hours to drop the extra pound-and-a-half by the commission in New Jersey, but was unable to get the final amount off and has forfeited the titles.

He now faces Conceicao, who himself tipped the scales just under the limit at 129.6lb, without the belts on the line, although the challenger can still win them.

However, a Conceicao win would be a monstrous upset, with bookmakers offering odds as wide as 8/1 on him to leave the home crowd stunned, while Stevenson is an unbackable 1/20 favourite.

In a statement on Twitter, Stevenson said: “I gave it my all. I’ve been professional my whole career and made weight, but my body just can’t make 130 anymore. My health has to come first. I’m moving up to 135 in my next fight.”

Net worth 

Stevenson’s net worth is around $3.5 million dollars in 2022. Most of the income comes from his fight purse and endorsement.
