Shakur Stevenson claims vacant featherweight title with easy victory over Joet Gonzalez

October 26 2019:, Reno, USA
Though Stevenson and Gonzalez came into this fight with a real-life personal grudge built in, the fight itself was far less dramatic. Stevenson's girlfriend is Gonzales's younger
sister. Gonzalez has made no secret that he does not like their relationship or Stevenson. Their father and Joet's trainer, Jose Gonzalez, has the same feelings and is estranged
from his daughter. Stevenson took full control of the fight, dominating the action to easily take a unanimous decision win. All three official judges turned in identical scores of
119-109. With the win Stevenson takes the WBO's vacant featherweight world title and called for a unification fight with Josh Warrington the IBF champion.
