Two exciting super featherweight fighters are about to headline a boxing action on 12 June in Las Vegas. The young impressive prospect Shakur Stevenson will clash with Namibia’s Jeremia Nakathila. Given the fame and talent of Stevenson, he is a massive favorite at Stevenson vs Nakathila betting odds.
We are about to enjoy an interesting fight between Shakur Stevenson and Jeremiah Nakathila for the interim WBO title. Their fight will be the headline event on June 12 at the Virgin Hotel in Las Vegas. Most boxing commentators at online sportsbook news sites in the United States favor Stevenson. Besides, the bookies are offering a big value for Stevenson at Stevenson vs Nakathila betting odds.
It is perhaps due to the popularity, great boxing IQ, and talent of the young American prospect. But, Namibia’s Nakathila eyes on a win, not just a good show. The winner of this fight will likely get a shot against Jamel Herring for the WBO title or Oscar Valdez for the WBC. So, there is a lot on the line here for both fighters.
Stevenson proves to be better in every fight
The undefeated New Jersey native is only 23 years old. But, he already had 15 pro fights winning eight of them by way of knockout. He spent only four years in professional boxing, but the improvement and talent he showed are highly impressive.
Stevenson is not a massive power puncher, but he is very accurate and always active in the ring. He displayed that in his last fight against Toka Kahn Clary in December when he won by unanimous decision. Although he needs some time to reach his prime, he is a very dangerous fighter. According to Bet365 Sportsbook, Stevenson stands at 1.02 to win against Nakathila. If you wish to go for an easy bet then you may consider Stevenson to come out victorious.
Nakathila is confident but has a slim chance
The 31-year-old Namibian boxer holds a record of 21-1-0, with 17 KOs. He is coming off a KO win over Emmanuel Amos in December. His record is very decent, as he only lost once and that was back in 2016. But, it is hard to see big names on his resume which makes it difficult to choose him at Stevenson vs Nakathila betting odds with an 11.00 value.
It must be mentioned that Nakathila seems very confident. He stated recently: “We had a great training camp, so we can’t have better preparation than this and I am ready to destroy Shakur Stevenson,” as per the Namibian. However, it is hard to see how he can win against Stevenson and that is why online sportsbooks in the United States consider him a big underdog.
