American Shakur Stevenson is one of the best boxers in the world, and this Thursday, November 16, he will have one of his most important fights of the year against Edwin De Los Santos.
Stevenson is the current lightweight champion in two organizations, but now he wants to win the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt against the Dominican De los Santos in Las Vegas.
In addition, the North American is looking to make more of an argument to get the fight he is searching for against undisputed lightweight champion Devin Haney.
But the Latino southpaw is also on the road to making a name for himself at the elite level. He is currently riding a three-fight win streak, and interestingly enough, he came into this fight because Frank Martin pulled out due to contract problems.
It should be noted that De Los Santos, 23, has never won a world title, so this may be a turning point in his career.

Where To Watch:
Why bet on Shakur Stevenson?
Shakur Stevenson is one of the best boxers in the world, but he is still looking for more recognition and titles so the experts can place him as the best pound-for-pound in the world.
At 26 years old, the American has great favoritism since his fighting style is very complete, with great defense and enough punches to get knockouts.
In addition, the record favors Shakur, who has won all of his fights (20), scoring 10 KOs. The New Jersey native defeated Shuichiro Yoshino in his only fight in 2023, earning a win by knockout.
Stevenson was an Olympic champion at the 2016 Rio Games and has been a professional since 2017. His career has always had to endure comparisons to Floyd Mayweather because of the way he defends and especially because he relies heavily on offending his opponent as a way of counter-attack.
Shakur’s height is 1.73 meters, which is the same measurement as his reach, which could start as an advantage for his fight against the Dominican.
Why bet on Edwin De los Santos?
Dominican Edwin De Los Santos came into this fight against Shakur Stevenson on an emergency basis since Frank Martin pulled out of the fight due to contract problems.
But it must be said that the Latino was able to recover since his first fight in the United States ended with a loss to William Foster III by split decision. However, he later defeated Luis Acosta, Jose Valenzuela, and Joseph Adorno.
He currently holds the World Boxing Council Continental Lightweight title of the Americas, a belt he will defend.
De los Santos, who has a 16-1 record, is a southpaw, and his main characteristic is his punch. That is why he relies on his aggressiveness to try to outbox his opponents, a style opposite to what his opponent does this Thursday.
The Dominican has a height of 1.73 meters, while his reach is 1.78, better than that of his rival.
