Featherweight boxing champion Shakur Stevenson will be getting a warm welcome from his hometown of Newark during a ceremony planned for Saturday, Mayor Ras Baraka said in a statement.

Stevenson, with a 13-0 professional record, won the World Boxing Organization belt in a 12-round bout in Las Vegas in October. Stevenson, who won a medal in the Olympics, grew up in Newark as the eldest of nine children and was trained by his grandfather, Wali Moses, beginning at age 5.

The ceremony will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. at Newark Symphony Hall, 1020 Broad St.
