Shakur Stevenson was stripped of his WBC and WBO super featherweight belts Thursday after failing to make weight ahead of his title defense against Robson Conceicao. Stevenson, who could not weigh in more than 130 pounds, arrived on the scale at 131.6 pounds. He had two hours to drop the excess 1.6 pounds, but his team decided it wasn’t possible.. “I’ve been professional my whole career and made weight, but my body just can’t make 130 anymore. My health has to come first.

Saturday’s fight at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, will still take place but only Conceicao is eligible to win titles. He weighed in at 129.6 pounds.
