The storylines that come out of boxing are reason enough to keep up with the sport. This weekend, fans will get another episode from one of the most exciting current storylines: Young superstar Shakur Stevenson looks to cement his place as one of the world’s best pound-for-pound boxers, defending his unified WBC, WBO, and Ring Magazine junior lightweight titles against Robson Conceicao.
For Conceicao, a victory this weekend would mean earning the first world titles of his career. The Brazilian boxer had a shot at the WBC belt last year, but lost to defending champion Oscar Valdez in the first defeat of his professional career. Earlier this year, Stevenson succeeded where Conceicao failed by taking the WBC title from Valdez.

Stevenson vs. Conceicao Fight Undercard, Odds, Prediction
Although Shakur Stevenson and Robson Conceicao have relatively similar records (18-0 for Stevenson, 17-1 for Conceicao) Stevenson enters Saturday’s fight as the heavy favorite with moneyline odds of -1200, per FanDuel Sportsbook. This gap is largely due to Conceicao’s defeat at the hands of Oscar Valdez last year, and perhaps also because he’s 33 years old — eight years older than Stevenson.
When betting odds were released in July, Stevenson took to Twitter to defend Conceicao’s place across from him, writing “Robson is a solid fighter he’s a Olympic gold medalist and arguably beat Valdez before me.”
Besides the Stevenson vs. Conceicao bout, viewers will also get a co-feature with lightweights Keyshawn Davis and Omar Tienda, as well as a few exciting undercard matchups. Check them out here:
