Stevenson (14-0, 8 KOs) took the fast route to a world title after capturing a silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Last October, a little more than three years after turning pro, he bested Joet Gonzalez via unanimous decision to win the vacant WBO featherweight world title. After COVID-19 forced the cancellation of a March title defense against Miguel Marriaga, Stevenson moved up to junior lightweight and kicked off the MGM Grand Las Vegas Bubble experience June 9 with a knockout win over Felix Caraballo.
Kahn Clary (28-2, 19 KOs), a one-time top prospect from Providence, RI, is an eight-year pro who turned around his career following a stunning first-round knockout loss as a 19-0 prospect in 2016. He lost a close decision to Kid Galahad in an October 2018 featherweight world title eliminator, and since that defeat, he has won three straight at junior lightweight. Kahn Clary last fought October 29 and knocked out veteran Jonathan Perez in two rounds.
