DETROIT, MI (June 5, 2020) – Top Rank’s undefeated WBO Featherweight World Champion, Shakur Stevenson (13-0, 7 KOs), will be the featured guest on “Stars and Champions”, airing tonight Friday, June 5, 2020, on the Impact Network. Veteran boxing writer Dan Rafael, will host the 30-minute broadcast beginning at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT.
“In this edition of 'Stars and Champions,' Stevenson, who was at his training camp in Houston, talked about his excitement for headlining the return of boxing against Felix Caraballo on Tuesday night and his desire to eventually fight Leo Santa Cruz,” said Dan Rafael. “He also gives us his current pound-for-pound list and his thoughts on promoters working together.”
Stevenson captured the vacant WBO crown when he defeated Joet Gonzalez (23-1 14 KOs) in November of 2019.
