Shakur Stevenson Believes Gervonta Davis And Devin Haney Are The Toughest Fights At 135
Shakur Stevenson is already a two-weight world champion, but the 25-year-old believes that his attributes and mentality will take him all the way through another four divisions.
Stevenson won the first of his belts in 2019, when he conquered the WBO Featherweight title. Afterward, he moved to 130lb where he is the current unified champion following his complete performance against Oscar Valdez recently.
The 25-year-old will be heading to Newark on September 23 to defend his unified championship against the Olympic Gold Medallist Robson Conceicao.
“I feel like I ain’t rushing to go to 135. We don’t know if any of the fighters are willing to fight somebody like me. It’s a difficult style to fight anyway.” Stevenson talking to the Good Fight Host.
“I’m going to take my time. Maybe conquer my division even more than I already did.”
Stevenson was also asked about his toughest opponent in the interview.
“I think definitely Tank (Davis) and Devin are the toughest fights at 135 just because neither of them lost. Devin’s very dominant, just like me. We both dominate. I feel like that’s going to be a great fight.”
“With Tank he’s got some good skills, but his power is something you got to watch out for. You can’t slip up at any moment with him. You can’t make no mistake because he’s got power from one to 12.”
