Shakur Stevenson wins WBC lightweight belt with unanimous decision over Edwin De Los Santos
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Shakur Stevenson won the WBC lightweight world championship on Thursday night via unanimous decision over Edwin De Los Santos in a fight that had fans booing the lack of action. Stevenson (21-0, 10 KOs) picked up a title in a third weight class, winning by scores of 116-112 on two cards and 115-113 on the other. De Los Santos, who dropped to 16-2, kept Stevenson moving backward for much of the fight and found himself chasing and missing when opportunities presented themselves.
