On this huge night for boxing, not only do you have Katie Taylor vs. Amanda Serrano at Madison Square Garden, but you also have a junior lightweight unification bout in Las Vegas, Nevada between two rising stars in the sport.

Mexico s Oscar Valdez is the WBC champion, 2016 American Olympic silver medalist Shakur Stevenson is the WBO champion, and the two men will square off at the MGM Grand for the right to call themselves a unified champion in the talented 130 lbs division. It s a fascinating fight between the boxer-puncher Valdez and the slick offensive boxing and defensive prowess of Stevenson. Shakur is the heavy betting favorite per DraftKings Sportsbook but don t let that fool you into thinking this is a mismatch on paper.
