Shakur Stevenson Thinks He’ll Face George Kambosos Jr. Next After Some Fighters Turned Him Down

Shakur Stevenson believes he will face George Kambosos Jr. next time out.

Stevenson has yet to fight at 135lbs but he is already getting frustrated as he looks to get an opponent. Stevenson wanted to fight Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz or William Zepeda for his debut but he claims both men have turned him down so he has turned his attention to George Kambosos Jr. instead.

“It may be Kambosos, because Pitbull turned me down and Zepeda turned me down,” Stevenson said of his next opponent in a recent interview with FightHubTV (via BoxingScene). “I know from the rankings that Kambosos is next, so I think it will be Kambosos, probably.”

Kambosos Jr. is coming off back-to-back decision losses to Devin Haney to lose his titles and does not have his next opponent set. With that, a fight between him and Stevenson does make sense as the winner would be right back in the title picture.

However, as Shakur Stevenson continues to wait to get his next fight, he is getting mad at the politics of boxing and some fighters not wanting to face him.

“I think it’s sad,” Stevenson said. “I think boxing is in a sad state, when fighters can just duck and get away with it. I think that the fans and everybody allowed them to duck. Nobody really got on top of them the way that if I was to do something like that, or Devin, or let’s say anybody you know in the sport—If they do that they (the fans) gonna hop on they ass, so honestly I feel like boxing is just getting said that they allow fighters to duck like that. I don’t know what boxing got going on,” Stevenson added. “It’s not good. I think people should challenge, test themselves out [against those who are] good.”
