American Stevenson, who lost the championship due to his weight, will move to the lightweight category.

MOSCOW, September 23 – RIA Novosti. American boxer Shakur Stevenson, who lost the World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) titles, announced that he made the transition to welterweight because he could not meet the welterweight category before his fight with Brazilian Robson Conceicao.

The fight between Stevenson and Robson will take place on the night of September 24, Moscow time. The weigh-in was held on Friday. The weight of the 25-year-old American was 1.6 pounds (0.725 kg) above the norm for the second featherweight (130 pounds – 58.967 kg) – 131.6 pounds (59.7 kg). Two hours later he refused a second scale.

“I gave it my all. I’ve been a pro my whole career but my body can’t show 58,967 pounds anymore. My health has to come first. Next fight I’ll fight in the weight category until 135 pounds (61,235 kg),” Stevenson wrote on Twitter.
