Former two-division world champion, unbeaten American Shakur Stevenson (19-0, 9 KOs) has the potential to take down the lightweight division (61.2kg), surpassing every current division leader, including Devin Haney, Vassily Lomachenko , Gervont Davis and Ryan Garcia.
However, it would be wrong to give him victory over all competitors in advance, according to the legendary Roy Jones Jr., who turned to historical fact to support his opinion.
“I don’t even know if there is anyone who can beat absolutely everyone in the division. And I’ll tell you why,” explains Jones, answering a question
Fight Hub TVwhether Stevenson can beat all the top lightweights. – The current lightweight is like old-school boxing. Tommy Hearns couldn’t beat Hagler. Hagler failed Duran. And Tommy knocked out Duran, but couldn’t beat Leonard. Styles make fights and there is no clear winner in this division. But let’s see what happens next. We still have a lot to find out.”
Roy also shared his opinion on a possible fight between Haney and Lomachenko.
