Shakur Stevenson stepped up in weight class and jabbed his way to a second world title early Sunday, beating Jamel Herring by technical knockout in the 10th round of their junior lightweight championship fight. The former featherweight champion applied steady pressure throughout, and Stevenson (17-0) leaned on the jab that helped him to a silver medal in the 2016 Olympics. Herring (23-3) never went down, but as the fight wore on he suffered substantial damage above both eyes.
Stevenson was too fast, too strong and too smart for Herring who, try as he might, could never really mount an attack.
