Best of Shakur Stevenson – Blood, Sweat, & Tears: Stevenson vs. De Los Santos

11/10/2023 - No comments

This weekend, get ready for a bit of a telly treat, courtesy of ESPN. They’re rolling out the red carpet for the Stevenson vs. De Los Santos fight – a real humdinger of a scrap, I tell you. Tune in next Thursday, November 16, at 10:30 p.m. ET for a bit of fisticuffs live from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It’s all happening live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and ESPN+.

So, who’s on the card? We’ve got Shakur Stevenson, undefeated with 20 wins, and 10 of those by knockout. He’s squaring up against Edwin De Los Santos, a lad from the Dominican Republic with a record of 16-1, 14 KOs. They’re duking it out for the shiny vacant WBC lightweight world title. As if that’s not enough excitement, there’s also a little sideshow: Emanuel Navarrete from Mexico, with a record that reads like a bloke who doesn’t mess about – 38-1, 31 KOs. He’s up against Brazil’s very own Olympic golden boy, Robson Conceição. Should be a decent scrap, that.

Now, for the buildup, ESPN’s got a few specials to get you all revved up:

Best of Shakur Stevenson: A whole hour dedicated to Stevenson’s greatest hits – and no, I’m not talking about his music. We’re revisiting his journey to becoming a world champ, including that memorable night against Joet Gonzalez, and his dance – sorry, fight – against Jamel “Semper Fi” Herring.

Explosive European Middleweight Title Defense: Tyler Denny vs Felix Cash

Blood, Sweat & Tears: Stevenson vs. De Los Santos: A snappy 30-minute special that gives you a sneak peek into their training camps.

Trading Leather: Shakur Stevenson & Ochocinco: Ever wondered what happens when you put a boxing prodigy and a retired American footballer in a ring together? Me neither, but we’ll find out in this 30-minute special featuring Shakur and Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.

Don’t forget, these specials aren’t just airing once – they’re available for replay on the ESPN App and on ESPN.com and ESPN+. So, in case you’ve got nothing better to do, you can watch them over and over again.
