Shakur Stevenson vs. Artem Harutyunyan pick and prediction

In boxing, rightly or wrongly, fighters are judged on what they have done lately.

Unfortunately for Stevenson, his last showing was a painfully dull victory over Edwin De Los Santos last November. Winning is not enough for the three-weight world champion, he must look good doing so while fighting in front of a hometown crowd.

Harutyunyan may not be a household name, but the 2016 Rio Olympian proved he can provide a stern test to the best when he dropped a tight decision loss to Frank Martin a year ago.

Martin struggled with the pressure and awkward style of the Germany-based Armenian, but ‘The Original’ ran out of steam late in the fight and was forced to take a knee in the final round.

Stevenson’s hand speed and accuracy will like take a toll on the challenger as the fight goes on.

I think there is value in backing the Newark native to stop Harutyunyan in the second half of the bout at +150.

Pick: Shakur Stevenson to win in Rounds 7-12 +150
