Shakur Stevenson Open to a Bout with William Zepeda!
The lightweight division has a new challenger in William “Camaron” Zepeda (27-0, 23KOs) and he is ready to take on the best of the division. Camaron is fresh off of a dominating win over former IBF junior lightweight champion Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz on October 29. For the hard-hitting Mexican’s next challenge, he could face two-division champion Shakur “Fearless” Stevenson (19-0, 9KOs).
Fighting on the main event under Golden Boy Promotions, Zepeda shined under the brightest light on the big stage. Fans in attendance and watching at home now know his name. Moreover, after his performance, the commentators didn’t think any at the top would be in a hurry to fight him.
In the post-fight interview, Camaron claimed to want to fight any of the top fighters in the division. DAZN boxing, the network that hosted the fight, took to social media asking the fans who they would like to see him fight next.
STEVENSON RAISES HIS HAND!
This caught the eyes of Fearless, whose response has social media buzzing.
Stevenson announced a move up in weight after losing the unified junior lightweight title on the scale before his title defense against Robson Conceicao on September 23. Several boxing enthusiasts consider him a threat to anyone in the division.
A fight between the two fighters would mean Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank would have to play nice. However, fans shouldn’t expect this fight to happen until both fighters win titles.
Still, it is refreshing to see guys in their prime willing to step into the ring with another young lion.
