Shakur Stevenson is undoubtedly one of the best boxers in the lightweight division. He is a potential threat to the current champion as he stands undefeated after 20 wins. Ten of his victories were knockouts, which is an impressive feature on his resume.
Gervonta Tank Davisrecently defeatedRyan Garcia, handing over the former interim lightweight title holder his first-ever loss. However, Shakur Stevenson claimed that he would be a far matchup against Davis. According toTMZ, Stevenson said,I would love that fight. I think that s the biggest and best fight in the sport of boxing. You have someone who appeared in his era similar to Michael Jordan. Then you got a LeBron that came around in his era but they wasn t in the same era so we never got to see them go against each other.
He made a huge comparison of their potential matchup to the GOAT debate betweenMichael JordanandLeBron James. Stylistically, both Davis and Shakur are very similar. They are both incredible knockout artists but Tank has shown far more determination in his fights. Gervonta recently entered the top ten pound-for-pound fighters list in boxing.

Coming into this fight, Garcia was seen as the favorite to win. However, Davis came loaded with tanks for fists, as his nickname would suggest. Davis had a couple of turning points during the fight after knocking down Garcia twice. Once during the second round and then a liver shot during the seventh which ultimately led to a 10-count knockout.
