Kambosos was offered a fight with Stevenson. Ex-Absolute Answer


The Olympic medalist of the Olympic Games-2016 and the conqueror of two weight divisions, American Shakur Stevenson (19-0, 9 KOs), announced through social networks that he had received a refusal from a third potential opponent.

In 2023, the fighter will make his debut in lightweight. The Mexicans Isaac Cruz and William Cepeda refused to fight the techie. Now the ex-absolute division Australian George Kambosos Jr. (20-2, 10 KOs) is also in denial.

But at the same time, Stevenson is not offended by him – the fighters talked beautifully on social networks.

Stevenson: But the third fighter refused to fight me. Note that at the same time, I have not yet spent a single fight in the light weight limit. Well… Let’s see who will be next.

Kambosos: I’ve already done a hell of a lot at lightweight. Especially considering that all this is in one calendar year. And now I’m on a well-deserved vacation with the kids. My return to the ring will take place in the middle of next year. And no one dares to blame me for this, considering what a difficult year I had and how much blood I gave to boxing. Shakur, I respect you. And I feel that at the end of 2023 we will have a war.

Stevenson: I respect you too, champ. But you understand me too. The third refusal to a fighter who hasn’t fought a single fight here yet… But I understand what you’ve been through anyway. So have a good rest. And when you’re ready, let me know. I’ll be waiting.

Kambosos: Looking forward to your lightweight debut, champ. Can’t find an opponent? Oh, I had those problems too. I plan to return to the ring in the middle of next year. And then, at the end of the year, I will gladly upload a cool fight with you!

It is interesting that earlier Shakur was even offered a fight for all belts: will Lomachenko wait? Stevenson and Haney’s father agreed to fight. And he shared his opinion about the most stellar fighter of the division: Gervonta is cool, but he knows that he can’t beat me.
