Shakur Stevenson Overcomes Shuichiro Yoshino; Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez Clinches Flyweight Championship

In the quest for success across multiple weight classes, Shakur Stevenson has once again stepped up, this time challenging Shuichiro Yoshino in a 12-round WBC lightweight title eliminator in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday. Dominating the fight, Stevenson secured victory in the sixth round, earning his position as the mandatory challenger for the WBC lightweight title.

Having been previously relieved of his WBC and WBO junior lightweight belts due to missing weight before his match against Robson Conceicao in September, Stevenson (20-0, 10 KOs) redeemed himself with a unanimous decision win and advanced to the lightweight class. This division is currently ruled by undisputed champion Devin Haney.

In other news, Saturday witnessed Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez triumph over Cristian Gonzalez, claiming the vacant WBO flyweight title in the main event of a DAZN card at the Boeing Center at Tech Port in San Antonio, Texas.

Rodriguez (17-0, 11 KOs) had previously defended his WBC junior bantamweight title twice, including a unanimous decision win against Israel Gonzalez in September. He then moved down a weight class to compete for the vacant WBO flyweight title and successfully achieved his objective.
