Shakur Stevenson Sets Sights on Lomachenko Or Jamaine Ortiz

Shakur Stevenson (20-0, 10 KOs) has his sights firmly set on a potential clash with Vasiliy Lomachenko.

Stevenson, who felt Lomachenko had beaten Devin Haney despite the scorecards saying to the contrary, was highly impressed by the Ukrainian.

Eager to prove his mettle, Stevenson also expressed his desire to take on Jamaine Ortiz (16-1-1, 8 KOs) if the Lomachenko fight didn’t materialize.

Stevenson is well aware of Ortiz’s strong showing against Lomachenko in their previous encounter, where Ortiz displayed formidable skills before narrowly losing by decision.

With aspirations of securing all four titles at lightweight before moving up to 140 pounds, Stevenson also aims to face Devin Haney.

However, it remains to be seen if Haney will specifically name Stevenson as his next opponent.


“Jamaine Ortiz talks real crazy. I would want to put him in his place. That’s what I would want to do.

“But if I have the chance to fight Lomachenko next, he’s clearly not done. He’s clearly not an old washed-up fighter,” Stevenson
