Shakur Stevenson is now a three-weight world champion.

Stevenson (21-0, 10 KOs) captured the vacant WBC lightweight crown with a unanimous decision win against Dominican puncher Edwin De Los Santos (16-2, 14 KOs) Thursday evening at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 26-year-old southpaw delivered a slow-paced technical boxing match, rarely giving De Los Santos any opportunity to land on him by moving around the ring to avoid exchanges.

De Los Santos grew more frustrated as the rounds progressed and began to taunt Stevenson in the fifth round. Nevertheless, neither fighter took chances or landed many punches as De Los Santos more or less chased Stevenson around the ring.

One judge had it 115-113 while the other two had it 116-112.

Stevenson was not happy with his performance.

Stevenson said, "I had a bad performance tonight. That’s all I’m really focused on. I wasn’t feeling too good, so I’ll live with it. It’s okay. I came here and got the victory, and that’s all I wanted to do.

“I just didn’t feel good. I didn’t feel good before the fight. Honestly, I had already told myself that if I feel like this in the ring and if it’s not going well, I’m going to make sure that I box and get the victory.”

On the other hand, De Los Santos believes Stevenson was unwilling to engage during the entire contest.

De Los Santos said, "We all know what happened. He came for a track meet. He didn’t come to fight. I showed that I am on a higher level because he never stood and fought like he does with other fighters.

“I did my job. He came to survive. That’s what he did. They gifted him the title, but I’m the people’s champion.”
