The junior lightweight division is slowly looking for a unified champion, and the process potentially takes a step forward on Saturday, June 10. No. 1 contender Shakur Stevenson and No. 2 contender Jeremiah Nakathila meet up in Las Vegas at Virgin Hotels for the WBO’s interim title. Coverage for the main card is set to start at 10 p.m. ET, with the TV broadcast on ESPN. Ring walks for Stevenson and Nakathila are expected to start sometime around midnight.
Stevenson is a heavy favorite, installed by DraftKings Sportsbook at -10000 to win the fight. If he wins, he’ll likely face the winner of the inevitable title unification bout between Jamel Herring and Óscar Valdez. If Stevenson loses, we’ll see a little more chaos with Nakathila a bit of a wild card.
