Stevenson is Nakathila's highest-profile opponent so far, but the 23-year-old New Jersey native - who beat Christopher Diaz two years ago - is targeting big game like WBO junior lightweight Jamel Herring and WBC super featherweight champ Oscar Valdez.
Shakur is certainly the favorite here, but it's shaping up as a clash of styles that could really test the undefeated former WBO featherweight champ.
Nakathila is the much heavier hitter of the two men, but Shakur - a pure boxer who's got this far because of his skill and intelligence in the ring - has hinted that he might try going toe-to-toe instead.
Is it all bravado, or is he really going to risk it? Follow our guide below to watch a Shakur Stevenson vs Jeremiah Nakathila live stream online from anywhere.
