It's an all-American title showdown, as Jamel Herring (23-2) puts his WBO Super Featherweight belt on the line for the fourth time, with undefeated superstar in the making Shakur Stevenson (16-0) looking to secure his third world title in just his 17th fight. Read on as we explain how to watch a Herring vs Stevenson live stream today and catch all the boxing action online from anywhere in the world.
The 35-year-old New Yorker has handled everything the division has been able to throw at him with aplomb, and his last fight was arguably the most impressive of the lot.
Herring took Carl Frampton apart in brutal fashion in April, reducing the brilliant Irishman to a bloodied, doddering wreck.
At just 24 years old, Stevenson is one of the hottest talents in the sport. The southpaw from Newark is expected to dominate for years to come, and a win tonight would represernt a potential changing of the guard.
Stevenson made his name by dismantling Christopher Diaz two years ago, but Herring is by far the toughest opponent he'll face. This should be utterly brilliant, so follow our guide below to watch a Jamel Herring vs Shakur Stevenson live stream online from anywhere.
