Shakur Stevenson vs. Robson Conceicao: LIVE round-by-round analysis, results, full coverage

·2 min read

ROUND 1

Mostly a feel-out, get-year-range round. Both guys jabbed some and threw power shots here and there, but not much landed. Stevenson, a southpaw, connected on a few straight lefts. One appears to get Conceicao’s attention.

Minutes away from the main event. The fighters are in the ring.

Lightweight prospect Keyshawn Davis of Norfolk, Virginia, stopped veteran Omar Tienda at 1:38 of Round 5 of a scheduled eight-round bout.

Davis (6-0, 5 KOs) outclassed Tienda (25-6, 18 KOs) with his superior boxing skills for four-plus rounds. Then, midway through the fifth, he put Tienda down with a right to the side of the head.

The Mexican was able to get up but was greeted with a flurry of hard punches that forced referee Earl Brown to stop the fight.

Davis won a silver medal in the 2020 Olympics in Japan, which took place last year because of the COVID pandemic.

Unbeaten 130-pound contender Henry Lebron (16-0, 10 KOs) of Puerto Rico defeated Andy Vences (23-4-1, 12 KOs) of San Jose, California, by a unanimous decision in an eight-round bout.

The scores were 80-72, 79-73 and 78-74.
