Shakur Stevenson Takes the Offensive Against Vasyl Lomachenko!

In the world of boxing, the anticipation for a thrilling matchup often leads to intriguing developments. Two-division champion Shakur “Fearless” Stevenson (20-0, 10KO) finds himself growing impatient in trying to secure a fight for the vacant WBC lightweight title against multi-divisional champion Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko (17-3, 11KO). Unconventionally, Stevenson has even gone as far as accusing his stablemate of harboring fear.

The WBC’s decision to designate undisputed champion Devin Haney as Champion in Recess created an opening for these two competitors to vie for the vacant title. With his sights set on Lomachenko, Stevenson has actively sought this fight on multiple occasions.

Upon hearing whispers of Haney’s potential bout against WBC junior welterweight champion Regis Prograis, Fearless swiftly utilized social media to extend an offer to Hi-Tech. During an interview with FightHype, he reiterated his eagerness to face Lomachenko, particularly if a match with Haney fell through.

Stevenson’s approach has taken a sharp turn as he enters attack mode. In a notable move, he even tagged Lomachenko’s manager, Egis Klimas, in his posts.

The atmosphere has shifted, and the mutual respect that often characterizes the sport has given way to intensified exchanges. In his most recent appearance, Stevenson demonstrated his prowess by stopping previously undefeated fighter Shuichiro Yoshino in the sixth round. Driven by the aspiration to secure a third divisional title, he refuses to remain idle.

A potential catalyst could emerge if the WBC directs top-ranked Lomachenko to face the second-ranked Stevenson. However, as of the time of writing, Team Lomachenko has yet to respond to the proposition.

3kingsboxing will maintain a watchful eye on this dynamic situation and provide any further updates.
