Shakur Stevenson Tells De La Hoya He is Game to Face Zepeda

WBC lightweight champion Shakur “Fearless” Stevenson (21-0, 10KO) eagerly accepted Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya’s offer of possibly fighting William “Camaron” Zepeda (30-0, 26KO) next.

On March 16, boxing fans were given a treat as Camaron’s focused body attack against Maxi Hughes resulted in a fourth-round stoppage. In the post-fight interview, the Mexican expressed wanting to fight Fearless.

Things heated up from there as De La Hoya took to social media with a message for the WBC champion.

Stevenson was’t going to let this go unanswered and quickly responded. In addition, he even named the month in which they could fight.

It isn’t the first time De La Hoya has called wanting to see Stevenson and Zepeda fight. At the beginning of 2024, he told members of the media the Mexican was asking to fight the WBC champion.


 Of course, boxing fans will be skeptical until they see them in the ring. Yet, it’s worth mentioning that De La Hoya was dangling a fight with Zepeda hoping to lure Stevenson out of retirement.

Fearless was unable to land a fight with then-undisputed champion Devin Haney. Moreover, his proposed fight with top contender Frank Martin never materialized as well. However, in this situation, things look promising as both sides appear to want to make the fight.

Camaron and the WBC champion have a history from a sparring session for the 2014 Olympics tryouts. That will undoubtedly be a focus point during the promotion of the fight.

This is a fight that needs to happen at some point in 2024.
