Shakur Stevenson lost his belts on the scale, but tonight’s main event in his hometown of Newark still goes ahead, with his opponent Robson Conceicao hoping to snatch the now-vacant titles up.
Stevenson – 18-0-0, 9 KOs- may no longer fit into the division- and has already announced he will move up after this- but he wants to cement his status as the best fighter at the weight and prove he belongs on the pound-for-pound lists. Conceicao meanwhile wants to gatecrash the party after a slow start to his pro career. Both will be looking to put some slick boxing skills to use to prove their superiority.
This post will provide live play-by-play of the main event. The preliminary card starts at 6pm ET on ESPN+, the main card begins at 10pm on ESPN and ESPN+
update: the main card will be delayed till the conclusion of the football on ESPN. New estimated start time around 10.45 ET
