Shakur Stevenson vs. Christopher Diaz

10 rounds, featherweights

Shakur Stevenson captured an Olympic silver medal in Rio 2016 when he was only 18 years old. He is a true blue-chip talent and has been equally impressive a professional prize fighter. He has had 10 fights so far, all victories and with 6 of them coming by way of KO. His opponent Christopher Diaz (24-1) looks like a big step-up but it´s actually good matchmaking. Stevenson is an elite boxer with great concentration. Look for Stevenson to outbox Diaz and befuddle him. If he wears him out he might get a late stoppage otherwise a clearcut decision win. The Pick is Shakur Stevenson.

The Pick: Shakur Stevenson to win fight
