The lightweight title was formerly held by undisputed champion Devin Haney but he has decided to move up to welterweight, being named a champion in recess for doing so. 

Stevenson was expected to take on lead contender Frank Martin for the title but he didn’t accept the fight, meaning De Los Santos was the next available opponent. 

The Dominican has only tasted defeat once in his professional career, losing to William Foster by split decision in January 2022. 

Emanuel Navarrete will take on Robson Conceicao elsewhere on the stacked card which takes place only one day before Formula 1’s debut on the Las Vegas strip.
