Gervonta is tough, but he knows he can’t beat me – Stevenson


Former world champion in two categories, American Shakur Stevenson (19-0, 9 KOs) is not going to respond with the same grumpy coin to compatriot Gervonte Davis (27-0, 25 KOs), who has repeatedly allowed himself to speak about Shakur in a dismissive tone.

On the contrary, Stevenson is honest and recognizes Davis as a truly strong fighter. But at the same time, I am sure that if they end up in the same ring, the outcome of the confrontation will not please Gervonta.

“I will not belittle this dude and do not give him his due. I think he’s a damn good fighter,” Stevenson said. – Really, see for yourself. He also performs at PPV and knocks out all these dudes. However, that doesn’t change the fact that I can beat this dude. This dude knows he can’t handle me.”

Recall that Davis owns a secondary WBA World lightweight title (up to 61.2 kg), which he will defend on January 7 against Dominican Hector Luis Garcia (16-0, 10 KOs). If successful, in April Gervonta is going to fight another popular and unbeaten American Ryan Garcia (23-0, 19 KOs).

Stevenson himself seems to have also decided on his opponent.
