Errol Spence Jr. acknowledged Shakur Stevenson’s prowess, as he reportedly aims to have his boxer, Frank Martin, challenge him in a bout.
Spence enlisted the Detroit-born fighter under his promotional company, Man Down Promotions. Following this, Martin (17-0, 12 KOs) has enjoyed a significant amount of success.
With that being said, Spence has targeted Stevenson following his impressive showing against Shuichiro Yoshino, as the American stopped the then-undefeated boxer in a 6th-round TKO.
And in what was Stevenson’s debut at 135 lbs, it put the whole division on notice. And yet, Stevenson has bigger names on his list.

With that being said, Spence had nothing but good words to say: “He nice as f—.”
And by the looks of it, Spence’s praise was shared by boxing enthusiasts galore.
