Shakur Stevenson won two times Saturday night.
The primary success came when he crushed Oscar Valdez in a consistent 117-110, 118-109, 118-109 choice. Stevenson ruled from minute one before an antagonistic horde of 10,102 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, wrecking Valdez in the 6th round. Valdez wound up holding tight yet never genuinely undermined Stevenson. The outcome moved Stevenson to 18-0 in his profession and dropped Valdez to 30-1.
The subsequent success came during the postfight interview. Stevenson stopped, got on one knee, drew out a ring and proposed to his better half, rapper Young Lyric … what’s more, she said OK.
Stevenson and Lyric have been dating for quite a while, and had a little girl together, Leilani Asha Stevenson, in December.
Stevenson addressed Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, winning a silver award. He is as of now positioned No. 1 in ESPN’s lesser lightweight divisional rankings.
“I’m a whiz in this game,” the 24-year-old Stevenson said after the battle. “Line them up. I’m prepared for whoever.”
