Shakur Stevenson record

Stevenson has an unbeaten record from 21 pro fights, with 10 of the 26-year-old’s victories coming via KO.

After winning a silver medal at the 2016 Olympics at Bantamweight, Stevenson turned pro in 2017 and won his first fight in April of that year against Edgar Brito.

Stevenson then won his next eight bouts before taking on Jessie Cris Rosales in January 2019, who he beat by TKO to secure the vacant IBF Inter-Continental and WBC Continental Americas featherweight titles.

In October of that same year, he extended his winning record to 13 with a unanimous decision success over Joet Gonzalez to claim the vacant WBO featherweight title.

In 2020, he fought twice, seeing off Felix Caraballo and Toka Khan Clary, before, in June 2021, he beat Jeremiah Nakathila to pick up the vacant WBO interim super featherweight title.

The WBO super-featherweight title soon followed when Stevenson defeated Jamel Herring and his superb form continued when he unified the WBC and vacant The Ring super-featherweight titles with his WBO belt when he overcame Oscar Valdez by unanimous decision in April 2022. 

Another unanimous points decision was secured with victory over Robson Conceicao in his first championship defense as a unified super-featherweight in September 2022.

After announcing his move to lightweight, Stevenson beat Japanese fighter Shuichiro Yoshino thanks to a sixth-round stoppage in April 2023 and was last in the ring in November, winning the vacant WBC lightweight title by beating Edwin De Los Santos on points.

Artem Harutyunyan record

Harutyunyan, who is 33, has a record of 12 wins and one loss from 13 fights with seven of those victories coming via KO.

Harutyunyan represented Germany at the 2016 Olympics, winning a bronze medal at light-welterweight, before his first victory as a pro came against Avelino Vazquez in November 2017.

He won the vacant IBO Continental light-welterweight title in June 2019 when beating Argentinian Hugo Alfredo Santillan and then picked up the vacant IBO International light-welterweight title five months later by seeing off Islam Dumanov.

A split-decision win over Vladyslav Melnyk in April 2021 gave him the vacant WBA International lightweight title and he secured the vacant WBC title later that year when knocking out Spaniard Samuel Molina in the fifth round.

In his most recent fight last July in Las Vegas, Harutyunyan suffered his only defeat when going down to American Frank Martin by unanimous decision in their WBC World Lightweight eliminator.
