Stevenson (18-0, 9 KOs) won the WBC title in April with a dominant performance against Oscar Valdez. The 24-year-old is one of the most promising young fighters in the sport and is looking to make a statement in his first title defense.

Harutyunyan (16-0, 11 KOs) is a tough and experienced challenger who has never been defeated. The 30-year-old is coming off a knockout win over former world champion Viktor Postol in his last fight.

The fight is expected to be a competitive one. Stevenson is the more skilled boxer, but Harutyunyan is a powerful puncher and has the experience advantage.

Here is a more detailed breakdown of the fight:

* Excellent boxing skills

* Not the biggest puncher

* Power puncher

* Experienced

* Good chin

The fight is expected to be close, but Stevenson is the favorite to win. He is the more skilled boxer and has the home-field advantage. Harutyunyan is a dangerous challenger, but Stevenson should be too much for him.
