Friends become foes on Oct. 23 when Jamel Herring defends his WBO super featherweight championship against undefeated rising star Shakur Stevenson at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
Herring (23-2, 11 KOs) was last seen in April when he sent Carl Frampton into retirement with a sixth-round TKO. This will be Herring’s fourth defense of his world title but he’ll be facing a young and hungry fighter who has extraordinary talent.
The 24-year-old Stevenson (16-0, 8 KOs) will be facing his toughest test to date as he aims to be considered as one of the elite young fighters in the sport. In his last outing in June, he defeated Jeremiah Nakathila, which lined him up for this title opportunity.
