Shakur Stevenson to face Christopher Diaz on April 20

2016 Olympic silver medalist featherweight Shakur Stevenson (10-0, 6 KOs) will fight on competition April 20 on the Terence Crawford-Amir Khan PPV undercard, ESPN informs. Stevenson is one of boxing’s best prospects now, and he may face Puerto Rico's Christopher Diaz (24-1, 16 KOs), whose only loss came by decision to Masayuki Ito in July for a vacant junior lightweight title.

After the loss, Diaz dropped down in weight and won his only fight since. He was slated to face Jessie Magdaleno on the March 17 but took the Stevenson fight when Top Rank offered him more money. Magdaleno (25-1, 18 KOs) may instead face fellow former junior featherweight titlist Rico Ramos (30-5, 14 KOs) in a featherweight bout March 17.
