The former WBC and WBO super featherweight champ, Shakur Stevenson has no problem throwing hands with the current unified lightweight champ, Devin Haney but believes the fight will never happen.
After conquering the featherweight division, Stevenson decided to make a move to 135 where the likes of Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney and Vasiliy Lomachenko already fighting for pride.
But to his disappointment, none of the mentioned names is willing to go head to head with him inside the tied ropes. Stevenson is still waiting for his debut at 135, with his promoters taking keen interest to get him going in the new division straight away.
The 25-year-old Southpaw discussed the prospect of facing the unified champ, Haney, in future, with Barak Bess and Akin Reyes on “The DAZN Boxing Show”.
“I called Devin out,” Stevenson said. “The thing is, Devin, got a situation with Lomachenko, where they going for that route.”
“But If the fight happens[with Haney], I will definitely be down for it.”
Stevenson is expected to open his account in April this year against the Japanese Shuichiro Yoshino but nothing has been finalized yet. Stevenson has been calling out all the big bulls in the division but hasn’t succeeded in convincing any of them.
