Shakur 'Sugar' Stevenson (16-0, 8 KOs) might be 11 years younger than his opponent but the New Jersey-born southpaw is already on course to become a two division champion having won the WBO featherweight world title two years ago, before moving up to challenge for the super featherweight strap.
"He's not my friend. I don't talk to him outside of boxing," Stevenson told reporters at Friday's tense weigh-in. "If he slips up and makes any mistakes, I am going to capitalise. You will see a special night – my coming out party. It's not sparring, bro".
Jamel Herring (23-2, 11 KOs), 35, is no dope. The ex-Marine, who goes by 'Semper Fi', secured the WBO super featherweight belt with a unanimous decision victory over Masayuki Ito in May 2019, and sent Carl 'The Jackal' Frampton into retirement with a dominant display back in April.
When it comes to technique, speed and defensive prowess, 5ft 7, Ash-Shakur Nafi-Shahid Stevenson, to give him his full name, is unrivalled in his class. But will 5ft 10 New Yorker Jamel Herring make his four inch reach advantage count?

How to watch Jamel Herring vs Shakur Stevenson abroad using a VPN
