Shakur Stevenson Aims To Be Undisputed, Despite Bob Arum’s Thoughts
Shakur Stevenson wants to join the undisputed club, but his promoter Bob Arum reportedly feels different.
Following Jermell Charlo’s knockout win over Brian Castano Saturday night – becoming the first undisputed light middleweight champion in the four-belt era — a Twitter user asked Stevenson if he’s chasing the undisputed status for the junior lightweight division.
I want to and I will but since I’m not Loma Bob think undisputed is played out 😂 https://t.co/zTgijT14SQ

“I want to and I will but since I’m not [Lomachenko] Bob think undisputed is played out,” Stevenson replied.
Stevenson made it clear of his plans after he defeated Oscar Valdez in stunning fashion earlier this month. He claimed the WBC strap to go along with his WBO title, which he snatched from Jamel Herring last year.
“I want to collect all the belts at 130 and become undisputed,” Stevenson said after the win. “I deserve to be a superstar so that’s what I gotta do.”
The only two belts left are the WBA and IBF straps, which are currently defended by Roger Gutierrez and Kenichi Ogawa, respectively.
