“I'm not trying to defend Top Rank, but you can't blame the promoter for another fighter refusing to fight.. I think this is a weak position. He showed himself to be a weakling.
I have a second lightweight fight coming up and I don't think he can avoid me for long.. Hope I get a chance to meet this guy. Honestly, I think he could be my next opponent,” Boxing News 24/7 quotes Stevenson as saying.
Shakur will fight his next fight on November 16th against Dominican Edwin De Los Santos. The WBC lightweight title will be at stake in the confrontation.
Earlier, Usyk named Lomachenko’s next opponent.
