Shakur Stevenson Intends to Expose the Vulnerabilities of Tank Davis!
Two-divisional champion Shakur “Fearless” Stevenson (19-0, 9KO) became the biggest threat to all the top guys the minute he announced moving up to the lightweight division. Now, Fearless has put a red dot on the back of multi-divisional champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (27-0, 25KO).
It all started from an interview on The Rize Podcast, where the interviewer mentioned Stevenson’s name as one of three fighters that could beat Tank. Davis responded with claims from old sparring sessions that he cracked Stevenson and undisputed champion Devin Haney.
Of course, Fearless responded by indicating Davis is all talk and that the Baltimore power puncher will be easy work. The boxing community hopes this leads to a dust-up in the ring someday.
STEVENSON GOES IN ON DAVIS
In an interview with FightHype, Stevenson promised to expose Davis when they fight. In addition, he explained the reason for all the tough talk is because Tank has two fights already scheduled.
“I think that he is a hell of a fighter. I mean look at him, he fighting pay-per-views knocking these dudes out. That don’t take away from the fact that I can beat this dude . . . he’s only saying that because he got fights lined up. I mean, you get two fight dates lined up, you could sit there and say whatever you want about somebody else that is irrelevant to the people that you fighting.”
“After he fights Golden girl (Ryan) Garcia, tell him to have the same type of energy . . . that dude gets to feeling himself and feeling like he’s something that he not. To the world, he looks like a killer, but I can’t wait – I’m going to expose him.”
“I’m going to be the person to expose him.”
WHAT IS NEXT FOR STEVENSON
In his last outing, Stevenson lost the 130-pound belts on the scales after not making weight against two-time title challenger Robson Conceicao on September 23. Immediately following the victory, the New Jersey native revealed the lightweight division as the next stop.
Fearless is trying to make his divisional debut against top lightweight contender William Zepeda. After both men have gone back and forth on social media, Stevenson acknowledged sending Team Zepeda a contract to fight.
