Shakur Stevenson thinks a fight with Gervonta Davis is the biggest bout to make in boxing.
Davis picked up the biggest win of his career on Saturday as he scored a seventh-round TKO win over Ryan Garcia. The entire boxing world was focused on the fight, including Stevenson who was watching it thinking he could face the winner in the near future.
“I felt Tank looked sharp. He was real sharp. He boxed real good. I think Ryan was pre-school. Ryan wasn’t on that top level,” Stevenson said to TMZ Sports. “I ain’t think Ryan was that good. I ain’t taking no credit away from Tank. Tank did what he was supposed to do but Ryan wasn’t that.”
In the fight, Stevenson thought Ryan Garcia made a lot of key mistakes as he kept throwing the same punch and against someone like Tank Davis you can’t make that mistake.
“He ain’t know his distance. He was looking for one left hook the whole entire fight. He threw a left hook three times in a row and got clipped. Anybody knows that when you’re fighting Tank, you can’t do something three times in a row because his brain is like a computer. He picks up on it,” Stevenson said.
With Gervonta Davis getting the win, Shakur Stevenson says he would love to get that fight in the future. He believes it is the biggest fight to make and knows it would be a very competitive bout between two of the best boxers in the world.
“I would love that fight. I think that’s the biggest and best fight in the sport of boxing,” Stevenson said. “You got like a Michael Jordan that came around in his era. Then you got a LeBron that came around in his era but they wasn’t in the same era so we never got to see them go against each other. With me and Tank, you got two special fighters that been special our whole careers and our whole lives. When it comes down to it, it’s going to be the biggest and best fight in boxing. I can’t wait. I feel like I’m a bad motherf—— when it comes to this boxing stuff. The people who really know boxing going to tell you that’s the big fight and I agree with them. I think that that’s the biggest fight.”
