Boxing

Former world featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson (15-0, 8 KOs) and Jeremiah Nakatila (21-1, 17 KOs) underwent an official weigh-in procedure ahead of their June 12 bout at the Wejin Hotel Arena in Las Vegas. Stevenson’s weight was 129.6 lbs (58.8 kg), Nakatila – 129.4 lbs (58.7 kg).

The difference in height between Nakatila (177 cm) and Stevenson (170 cm) is 7 centimeters. The American is considered the undisputed favorite of the meeting (50 to 1).

At stake in their meeting will be the interim WBO featherweight title and the winner will most likely box with full-fledged champion Jamel Herring in the next fight.

The boxing night will be broadcast on the ESPN platform starting at 5 am Kiev / Moscow time.

Also this evening, former world champion Jose Pedraza (28-3, 13 KOs) will face Julian Rodriguez (21-0, 14 KOs) in a 10-round super lightweight bout. Pedrasa weighed 139.8 lbs (63.41 kg), Rodriguez 141.4 lbs (64.13 kg). Rodriguez was contracted to weigh less than 140 pounds and was given an hour to cut the excess weight. At the same time, the parties have already begun negotiations on compensation for Pedraza for the superiority of the opponent.
