One of the biggest nights of Shakur Stevenson’s life took a concerning turn during his post-fight press conference.
After the undefeated Newark native defeated Oscar Valdez to unify the WBO, WBC and The Ring super featherweight titles, he got engaged to his girlfriend, rapper Young Lyric, getting down on one knee and proposing in the ring.
But as he spoke to reporters after the fight, a brawl broke out outside the press conference room at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and Stevenson dropped his titles and rushed out toward the fracas.
