Shakur stevenson became Interim Super Featherweight World Champion of the OMB when defeating by triple card of 120-107 to Jeremiah Nakathila.
The American fighter showed those defensive skills that have characterized him so much by never being in danger against the African, but despite the dominance he had and that he connected the best fists, he was not close to knocking out Jeremiah.
Nakathila he was outmatched from the first moment the bell rang as he was totally outmaneuvered by speed, technique and more.
He tried to go forward, trying to get his punches in, but he was very slow, the jabs he used to measure distance were useless and when he looked for 1-2, Shakur he was either on the other side or he hit him back.
Stevenson found it difficult in the first rounds as he did not risk much and because his strategy was based on counterattacking and that the African did not have much confidence, it took him a long time to establish the ring.
However, when Shakur gave him the initiative and let go Nakathila towards the front, he brought out his best moments by connecting up and down.
At the same time, to Jeremiah he was seen weak, since when he pounced on the undefeated American on several occasions he went to the ground, losing his balance.
For the fourth inning, a right hook late in the round sent Jeremiah Nakathila, who immediately got up and after the referee’s count, recovered and with the bell on top, there was no major problem.
The three judges saw Shakur dominate the 12 chapters of the fight and improved his record to 16-0, of which eight have been via chloroform. For its part, Jeremiah Nakathila He was 21-1 with 17 by knockout.
