Undefeated featherweight prospect Shakur Stevenson (8-0, 4 KO’s) has a lot of buzz behind him these days. The 21-year old returns to the ring this Saturday night vs. tough featherweight Viorel Simion (21-2, 9 KO’s) on the Terence Crawford vs. Jose Benavidez Jr. undercard in Omaha, NE.

Prior to Thursday’s Crawford vs. Benavidez final presser, we spoke to Shakur about his training camp, which included sparring some rounds with Crawford, being mentored by Andre Ward, and other aspects of his boxing journey.
