Teofimo Lopez thinks Shakur Stevenson is no longer relevant after another lackluster decision win over Artem Harutyunyan.

Stevenson picked up another decision and after the victory, Lopez, who was attending the Diaz-Masvidal fight, Lopez says he wasn’t impressed at all with Stevenson and doesn’t think anyone cares to watch him fight anymore.

“Ain’t nobody watching that shit. What did [Harutyunyan] have, like 12 wins?” Lopez told a group of reporters (via BoxingScene). “It’s [Stevenson’s] last fight with Top Rank, so good riddance. He has many accolades under his belt. It’s up to him and what they do. If he couldn’t finish [Harutyunyan], that’s on him. They say I was fighting a nobody but he fought a nobody and couldn’t finish the job. Don’t talk shit unless you know how to back it up. I wish him the best.” 

With Teofimo Lopez thinking nobody cares about Shakur Stevenson, he thinks if Stevenson fights, he should only be paid $2 million as that is all he is worth.

“Do what they give me, $2 million – that’s what his value is at,” said Lopez. “My value should be at the opposite end. But hey, he has a great management team and they know how to move him. I’m like Italian clothing. They pay me great value.” 

Teofimo Lopez is 21-1 as a pro and coming off a decision win over Steve Claggett and is on a five-fight winning streak. He’s the WBO and The Ring light welterweight champion. Lopez is also the former unified lightweight champion and has notable wins over Sandor Martin, Josh Taylor, Jamaine Ortiez, Vasyl Lomachenko, and Edis Tatli among others.
