From the day he turned pro, this kind of performance from Shakur Stevenson was inevitable

Stevenson kept a jab in Valdez’s face from the opening moments. He didn’t “run,” as many in the Valdez camp had derisively predicted

Oscar Valdez never had a chance against Stevenson in their bout Saturday for the WBC and WBO super featherweight

He’s not at their level yet, but he’s only 24 and neither Mayweather nor Ward were nearly a finished product at that age.

Stevenson connected on an astounding 53 percent of his power shots and held Valdez to 29 percent.

Vs Moment During Fight

"He was just the better fighter this night," said Valdez, 31. "He did what he had to do to win the fight. He's a great fighter. His speed is there, power is there."
