Can Stevenson beat Mayweather? Answered by Arum


The head of the Top Rank promotional company, Bob Arum, believes that his ward, the former world champion in two categories, American Shakur Stevenson (19-0, 9 KOs), has everything to surpass the career of his legendary compatriot Floyd Mayweather Jr.

However, it will depend only on Stevenson himself what he will ultimately achieve, because at the moment he is still very far from the heights conquered by Floyd, the legendary functionary emphasized.

“In terms of talent, he (Shakur) is just great,” said Arum. But Floyd is still a long way off. You have to give Floyd credit, he had an outstanding career. And to surpass him in this regard, you need to do a lot. Now, I think Shakur has the capacity for that. But it depends only on Shakur himself whether he wants to work as hard as Floyd, both in terms of promoting himself and directly in the ring.

Recently, Shakur announced a move to lightweight and admitted that he would not be offended by Lomachenko if he chose Haney over him.
