Shakur Stevenson is one of the most complete fighters in the sport of boxing and he’s not shy about letting others know just how good he is. When asked what would happen in a potential fight with former unified lightweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, the New Jersey native said that he’d “wash him.”
“If me and Lomachenko fight, I’m a wash him, and then everybody’s gonna understand why other people don’t like to fight me,” Stevenson said bluntly.
This is not the first time that Stevenson said he would easily beat a potential opponent. Previously, he dismissed the idea of fighting former undisputed lightweight champion George Kambosos Jr.
“If they don’t fight me, we can make it happen. And I’m gonna stop you. I promise y’all I’m gonna stop you. I’m gonna beat the sh*t out of you bro. Look at how little [you are.] Tiny. I’m on weight right now…I’m not Teo,” Stevenson told Kambosos Jr. after the Australian beat Maxi Hughes by decision last weekend.
As far as when fans can expect to see Stevenson in the ring next, things remain unclear. However, Top Rank’s Bob Arum has suggested that the goal is to have Shakur Stevenson return to the ring in November in Las Vegas, but nothing is set in stone just yet.
