Abdullah Mason Not Rushing his Journey to Be a World Champion

In his latest at bat, top-grade lightweight prospect Abdullah Mason (13-0, 11 KO’s) collected the scalp of Ronal “Triple R” Ron (14-6, 11 KO’s) in violent fashion. However, despite his promising showing and desire to become world champion, he may have to continue his bricklaying in 2024.

Following the fourth-round stoppage victory over Ron, Mason announced his arrival to the lightweight division in the post-fight interview.

“You see it, I’m here! I’m coming!”


While the future is bright for Abdullah Mason, it is evident that he is resolved to a slow grind to the top. The humble fighter realizes that this really is just the start of his career and life in front of the camera. Remaining cognizant of this, the creative southpaw does not feel like it’s appropriate to call out other notable names. This doesn’t mean he is turning down any smoke though.

When two-division champion Shakur Stevenson recently threw Mason’s name in a hat to face #4 (WBA) ranked Floyd Schofield Jr., he was full steam ahead. When questioned by the media and on social media, Mason persisted in his willingness to fight. Yet, Schofield stated his interest remained with Stevenson, who started the whole triangle scenario in the first place.


Once it was evident that the Schofield duel was not going to happen, Mason resumed his modest ways again. So, it will be interesting to see what opponent Team Mason comes up with next. Given how busy his team is keeping him, we should be seeing the burgeoning bruiser very soon.

“A lot of people rush themselves; they talk about what they are, they’re this and that, but my work speaks for itself. I’m in the ring, I’m stepping up. I am fighting tougher competition, but I am coming up and it will happen on its own. Once I get to that status, that world champion status, I’ll be there and it’s going to stick and I am not going to let up.”
