Shakur Stevenson 133.8 vs. Edwin De Los Santos 134.3 – weigh-in results

Shakur Stevenson & Edwin De Los Santos and, Emanuel Navarrete & Robson Conceicao all made weight on Wednesday for their event this Thursday night in Las Vegas, live on ESPN+

Stevenson (20-0, 10 KOs), the fighter that Top Rank is hoping can become a PPV attraction, weighed in at 133.8 lbs, and the more powerful, rugged underdog De Los Santos (16-1, 14 KOs) weighed in at 134.3 lbs for their 12 round fight for the vacant WBC lightweight crown.

During the face-off, Shakur appeared considerably taller than the barefooted De Los Santos because he wore thick sandals, which gave him a good inch of height.

It’s unclear if this was a bit of gamesmanship on the part of Shakur to wear elevator sandals, but probably because he’s appeared insecure & nervous about this fight.

Shakur puts up a good front when talking, but he betrays his fear with his shifty eyes, which reveal some serious worry about the outcome of this fight with the dangerous puncher De Los Santos.

We saw the same shifty eyes from Stevenson before his fight with Robeisy Ramirez in the 2016 Olympics, and he lost badly and was crying afterward.

Both fighters are 5’8″, so there is no height difference apart from Shakur having the size of a welterweight once he’s rehydrated.

“It’s hard to be in an unfamiliar place because I’ve always had my family, but that does not limit me because everything has its time,” said Edwin De Los Santos to Top Rank Boxing.

“I am already here for a better future, and every sacrifice has its reward. Something that is always, always going to be needed in boxing is discipline, and that’s what boxing has taught me,” said De Los Santos.

“There’s a bunch of things standing in the way of me achieving at that level that I want to, but the ducking for sure frustrates me,” said Shakur Stevenson. “They all see me in the gym. They all sitting back and watching my fights. They know that I’m the truth.

“A true fighter only takes his craft serious. He can fight, and I think that’s what it boils down to. Everyone knows that I can really fight. So, they’re going to do everything they can to get out of fighting me.

“I think I’m the best fighter in boxing. That’s my opinion. I believe that. No, there’s never been a time where, ‘I don’t want to fight that guy because that guy is the guy’ or ‘It’s not time yet.’ It’s never not been the time because I believe in myself.

“I believe 100% that if you put me in with any fighter that is fighting in the same weight class as me, I’m going to beat you. I checked off a couple of boxes. Becoming a world champion, becoming a two-weight world champion, unifying the belts. Them boxes are checked off,” said Shakur.

“Now what’s next is undisputed, pay-per-view superstar, become one of the biggest fighters in the sport of boxing. I want to run boxing and be the face of boxing. That’s on my checklist. Whenever I’m able to do that, I’ll feel real proud of myself.

“I just got to stay disciplined, stay focused, keep doing what I’m doing, and let everything take care of itself. I got a tough fighter in Edwin in front of me, and I got to go get him right now. So, let’s just focus on Edwin,” said Shakur.

“My opinion of the ability of Shakur? A tremendous boxer, good defense, but as my trainer always says, ‘Defense doesn’t win fights,'” said De Los Santos. “I have to break through his defense. Whatever style he brings, I have to break through every style.

“Of course, it is. For me, this would be a big life change. I have nothing to lose, and I am going, going after that to make a change in my life,” said De Los Santos.

“I am hungry still. I’m very hungry,” said Shakur. “Me at my best; it’s hard to deal with for anybody. Anybody that stands in front of me at my best is going to have a hard time. Let’s get it banging. Let’s see who the hungriest is.”
