Two-divisional champion Shakur “Fearless” Stevenson (20-0, 10KO) is itching to get his hands on undisputed lightweight champion Devin “The Dream” Haney (30-0, 15KO). Moreover, he believes the undisputed champion is not on his level and felt he should have lost to Vasyl Lomachenko!

SHAKUR STEVENSON CONTINUES TO CALL OUT DEVIN HANEY
Fearless had no problems expressing what he thought about the fight.
“Lomachenko should be the undisputed champion. He won that fight. He landed the cleaner shots on Dev [Devin Haney], and he pushed the pace.”
The two-divisional champion was only getting started as he made it clear that The Dream was not on his level.
“Let’s make it happen. I think that should happen next. I think Devin not on my level, and I’m gonna show it. I feel like he’s a tough fighter. But it’s a high skill level within me, and I feel like he’s not on my level…I can’t wait.”
This is not the first time he has expressed being able to beat Haney. After defeating Shuichiro Yoshino on April 9, Stevenson quickly proclaimed that he would smoke the undisputed champion.
Haney has mentioned wanting to fight Fearless on a few occasions. On The Last Stand Podcast, he acknowledged that Stevenson was on a list of guys he could fight after Lomachenko.
The lightweight division has become one of the most talked about divisions in boxing. It will be interesting to see how things play out over the next couple of months.
