Shakur Stevenson vs. Edwin De Los Santos preview

On November 16, Shakur Stevenson will take on the hard-hitting Edwin De Los Santos in an attempt to win the vacant WBC lightweight world title, and can help you in finding the best betting sites to wager in this highly anticipated fight.

The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will host the match. Shakur is taking on a power puncher with an 82 percent knockout percentage, who is widely considered to be his toughest opponent to date.

Being a pressure fighter, Edwin would want to take Shakur out right away. Shakur needs to use his aggression to his advantage by trapping him in misses and then successfully countering him.

Edwin is a young, competitive fighter who is only focused on winning his first world title. He has nothing to lose. He'll put Shakur under a lot of strain in an effort to kill him quickly.

Stevenson is a superb boxer with excellent vision who can precisely and methodically control his opponent's range. With one of the lowest opponent connection percentages in boxing (13.4%), he is hard to discover for his opponents.

Edwin is a powerful puncher who usually loses steam as the battle goes on despite starting strong in the first few rounds. Edwin's lack of endurance allowed William Foster III to take advantage of him, as he survived the early assault and defeated him via 8-round split decision.

Shakur would have analyzed Edwin's rhythm and timing if he can maintain the early attack. Stevenson will then go on to land his punches with accuracy and efficiency.

Even though he lost, Jose Valenzuela showed Edwin's defensive flaws by landing a left hook that stopped De Los Santos in the second round. De Los Santos may be careless, moves his head little, and is vulnerable to counter attacks since he is such an offensive player that he forgets to defend when he is attacking.

Shakur is devious and nimble, and using these qualities against Edwin will be crucial to beating him. This will be Edwin's first 12-round fight; he is younger and less seasoned than Shakur.

Shakur is capable of taking advantage of De Los Santos's shoddy defense, trying his stamina, and then frustrating him with lateral movement. Shakur has to be careful not to become overconfident and give Edwin an opportunity to take advantage of him because this is his battle to lose.

Shakur will become a terrific fighter, a third-division world champion, and possibly one of the best at 135 pounds if he can carefully outbox Edwin.
