Devin Haney Gives Shakur Stevenson An Ultimatum – ‘Sign The Contract’

Devin Haney has reiterated that Shakur Stevenson will have to take his offer of 25 percent in order to make their fight happen. 

The two fighters have been firing verbal shots at each other over the terms of an offer that had been sent.

Stevenson was very vocal in dismissing an offer, which allegedly was 25 percent. That did not sit well with Stevenson, given that he is a two-division champion.

In addition, it is claimed that Vasiliy Lomachenko had been offered a 60-40 split, who like Stevenson, had no world title.

The valuation, therefore, does not reflect the reported 40-45 percent that Stevenson is demanding, as both fighters continued to hit back at each other. 

As it stands, the fight is unlikely to happen. However, it is important to bear in mind the following points. Haney had taken a lowball offer to face George Kambosos Jr. in order to fight for the undisputed title.

Victory put Haney as the top dog, something which Stevenson has a chance to do. In contrast, this move by Haney could ease his move up to 140 lbs and become a successful PR move by showing that he did not duck Stevenson.

And in doing so, fight Regis Prograis at 140 lbs for the WBC title, or wait for a more lucrative fight with Gervonta Davis

The response on social media was naturally mixed.
