If the greatest female boxing match in human history doesn't tickle your fancy for this weekend, not to worry, as Floyd Mayweather Jr's. twin, Shakur Stevenson, should have you covered for combat sports action and then some. Perhaps the PFP number 1 in the latest batch of surging, young contenders, this Olympic medalist is fresh off the heels of his dominant 10th round finish over Jamel Herring, where he was up on all the scorecards before he decided he wanted to go home early.

Shakur Stevenson vs. Oscar Valdez Prediction

Across the squared circle is the always pervasive Oscar Valdez, whose 30-0 record is impressive at first glance but upon further inspection leaves a lot to be desired. Valdez stands at a rather unimpressive 5 foot 5 with a T-Rex Esque reach of 65 inches to boot. While proportionally not horrific, if he wasn't such an unimposing dwarf the analytics would be more disastrous to the naked eye. To be frank I see a lot of incestuous padding when I delve into Valdezes strength of schedule. 

When you win regional "world" titles against cab drivers and bin men, you get a vibe no different from Julio Caesar Chavez Sr's road to greatness. I believe Shakur Stevenson is the more proficient technical skillful boxer. He will have considerable physical attributes at his disposal and has the backing of real money, something that the Canelo trained Valdez would only hope to have a fraction of. Give me Stevenson to beat Valdez from pillar to post in a lopsided decision, and give it to me now.
