Curtis Stevens takes on Hassan N'Dam in IBF middleweight eliminator bout in Santa Monica

On Wednesday, October 1, local Los Angeles boxing fans will get to see one of the sport's most powerful middleweights at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, when hard-punching Curtis Stevens (27-4, 20 KOs) will face Hassan N'Dam (30-1, 18 KOs) in a mandatory bout to earn a shot at the IBF Middleweight World Championship Belt currently held by Australia's Sam Soliman (44-1, 18 KOs).  King Sports is promoting the bout with assistance from Roy Englebrecht Promotions.

Stevens is a short, compact fighter from Brooklyn who does his best work on the interior.  He has outstanding one-punch knockout power, but is still trying to rebound from a devastating knockout loss of his own that he suffered last year against middleweight superstar Gennady Golovkin.
