Haney Ridicules Shakur’s Boxing Career – ‘He Fights Nobody’

Devin Haney has criticized Shakur Stevenson’s boxing career after he tried to stand in as a possible replacement for Ryan Garcia

Haney defends his WBC Junior Welterweight Belt on April 20. There are some concerns that Garcia should not be fighting based on possible mental health concerns. Ryan admitted to being ‘high,’ as well as smoking weed and drinking alcohol. 

He has also been vocal about various issues, including human trafficking, resulting in him crying on social media. Stevenson has offered to take the fight if Garcia withdraws. Haney and Garcia are confident about the fight going ahead, as team Haney had various verbal exchanges with Stevenson.

Now, Devin has accused Shakur of regressing and living off his name. 

“Shakur, he say a lot but he don’t fight nobody. We don’t see him fight nobody, we ain’t seen it. He calls everybody’s name out, he was just calling out my name to fight me. This was the day before yesterday and then today seen he’s fighting June — whatever he’s fighting — and he got an opponent already. He’s fighting a guy, Zaur Abdullaev, the guy I already beat. So he going backwards,” Haney said 

Stevenson’s next fight is crucial. Since reversing his retirement, he has announced he will fight on July 6. No opponent has been confirmed, but there is pressure on him to perform. The performance against Edwin De Los Santos was booed, damaging Shakur’s brand. But he has potential big fights at 135 without facing Haney and Garcia at 140.

Gervonta Davis is the WBA Lightweight Champion. Shakur could also face the winner of George Kambosos Jr. vs. Vasiliy Lomachenko, who will face off in May for the vacant IBF Lightweight Belt. In addition, the WBO mandated Emanuel Navarrete vs. Denys Berinchyk for the vacant lightweight belt. Shakur could make these huge unification bouts if he puts in impressive performances.
