Shakur Stevenson Should Have Tank Help Verify his Beard Claim


Contrary to current popular belief, WBC lightweight champion “Fearless” Shakur Stevenson (21-0, 10 KO’s) has the utmost faith in his chin. In fact, according to his statements during a brief Q&A with Mill City Boxing, Stevenson stated he possessed one of the best in the business. Perhaps, in the near future, Steven can provide an acid test versus WBA 135-pound champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (Abdul Wahid) (29-0, 27 KO’s).

“We going to see! I already told you I got one of the best chins in the sport of boxing and I can’t wait to show y’all!”

In this blurb, Fearless is referencing the backlash that he received after turning in an outrageously squirrely performance versus Edwin De Los Santos. Since then, the fanbase has largely labeled Stevenson as a scary fighter not willing to engage opposition with significant pop in their gloves. The statement could be troubling to his fans, as he seems to be implying that he is looking to purposely take punishment to prove a point. Obviously, that could end in disaster.

PRIDE ROCK OR SLIPPERY SLOPE?

If given the opportunity, the best way to prove his point would be to stage a unification match with the aforementioned Tank Davis. Currently, they represent two of three belt-holding champions in the division. As the WBO is vacant, the last title is held by IBF-135 pound champion Vasyl Lomachenko.

Even though Loma is lauded for his skillfulness in the ring, the Ukrainian is not celebrated for his punching power. It’s for that reason, between the two, Tank would be the notably more dangerous fight. Securing a duel with Stevenson could potentially do wonders for Tank’s reputation as well.

Being the proven puncher he is, Stevenson could garner a great deal of public esteem by standing his ground and fighting in the pocket versus Tank. On the other hand, if Fearless turns in another disappointing performance, then he will have a whole new world of problems on his hands. First however, let’s see how Stevenson fairs on July 6 when he tangles with Artem Harutyunyan.
