Shakur Stevenson vs. Edwin De Los Santos

This weekend, he seeks his third belt, this time in the lightweight division, against gritty Dominican challenger Edwin De Los Santos. The card begins at 3 p.m. Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. Tickets start at $35; axs.com.

Sen. Estes Kefauver’s quest to expose organized crime is still paying dividends. On Nov. 15, 1950, a committee led by the Tennessee senator interviewed witnesses about alleged mob involvement in Las Vegas casinos in the second-floor courtroom of the building that opened in 1933 as Las Vegas’ first federal courthouse and post office. That building now houses the Mob Museum, the courtroom has been restored, and on Wednesday in celebration of Kefauver Day, Nevadans will be admitted free with ID. The museum, 300 Stewart Ave., will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Left to Die
Death, the band, is the first word in death metal, literally and figuratively. High among the genre’s greatest acts ever, the group came to an end when frontman Chuck Schuldiner died in 2001. The band’s legacy lives on, though, in Left to Die, which features former early members Rick Rozz and Terry Butler in a lineup fronted by Exhumed singer-guitarist Matt Harvey, who’s capable of sounding remarkably like Schuldiner. They play Death’s classic 1988 sophomore effort, “Leprosy,” in its entirety at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Dive Bar, 4110 S. Maryland Pkwy. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show; eventbrite.com.
