Curtis Stevens (born March 10, 1985) is an American professional boxer. He is a former regional NABF middleweight champion, having held the title twice in 2013, and in the same year challenged for the WBA and IBO middleweight titles.

Professional career[edit]

Stevens made his professional debut on September 30, 2004, stopping Henry Dukes in the first round. He would remain undefeated over his next twelve fights until a loss to Marcos Primera, who stopped him in the eighth and final round on July 20, 2006. In a rematch against Primera later that year on November 15, Stevens avenged the loss with an eight-round unanimous decision (UD).[1] A second loss came against Andre Dirrell on July 16, 2007, via ten-round UD.[2]

On November 2, 2013, Stevens received his first world title opportunity when he faced WBA and IBO middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin. In what was an anticipated match-up between two formidable knockout artists, Stevens was knocked down in round two, and despite occasionally landing some hard shots on Golovkin thereafter, Stevens retired in his corner by the end of round eight.[3]

Stevens was matched up against another fellow knockout artist, David Lemieux, on March 11, 2017. As was predicted, their fight immediately broke down into an all-out slugfest, but it was Lemieux who scored a brutal one-punch knockout in round three. Stevens was taken out of the ring in a stretcher and hospitalized overnight.[4]
