The American boxer failed the control weigh-in before the fight with Robson Conceicao.

The WBO and WBC super featherweight titles are now considered vacant. The fact is that belt holder Shakur Stevenson cannot invest in the mandatory weight limit before the fight with Robson Conceicao.

The undefeated American boxer failed at the weigh-in, exceeding the norm for the second featherweight by 725 grams, according to ESPN.

Immediately after such humiliation, Stevenson announced that he would no longer compete in the second featherweight division and move up to the lightweight division.

“I gave it my all. I’ve been a pro all my career and make weight, but my body can’t handle second featherweight anymore. I have to prioritize my health. In my next fight I will move up to lightweight,” Nag- Stevenson tweeted. .

It will be remembered that Stevenson’s fight with Conceicao will take place and will take place on the night of September 23-24 in Newark. But now for Shakur, he will only have monetary value. The WBO and WBC championship titles are only at stake for the Brazilian boxer.
