Stephan Shaw vs Bernardo Marquez, Jul 15

By Leroy Cleveland - July 13, 2022

Unbeaten heavyweight Stephan Shaw (16-0, 12 KO), ranked No. 8 in the U.S. by BoxRec, will face Bernardo Marquez (14-4-1, 10 KO), an opponent who has won 6 straight.

Shaw, of course, impressively defeated the very tough Joey Dawejko (then 21-9-4, 12 KO).

Hailing from St. Louis, MO, the 6’4″/193cm Shaw turned pro in 2013 after a distinguished amateur career.

“Stephan Shaw is an unbeaten heavyweight prospect with a lot of potential,” stated famed promoter and President of DiBella Entertainment, Lou DiBella in 2019.

How far will he go? Shaw isn’t yet a big name but might have the potential to make waves in the division.
