(Editor's note: Stevenson weighed in on Thursday at 131.6 pounds, 1.6 pounds over the weight class limit. Because of the miss, Stevenson has been stripped of the belts. The fight is still on, but only Conceicao is the only one eligible to win the titles.)
Shakur Stevenson looks to continue his meteoric rise when he defends his WBC, WBO, and Ring Magazine junior lightweight titles against Robson Conceicao.
Stevenson produced a career-best performance in his last outing in April when he beat Mexico's Oscar Valdez to claim the WBC and Ring Magazine, and will be looking to cement himself as one of the world's best pound-for-pound fighters.
Friday's fight will be Conceicao's second shot at a world title after losing to then-WBC champion Valdez in 2021. The Brazilian then bounced back from this loss with a unanimous decision win over Xavier Martinez in January.
